    If you don't like to be in war
    and ask yourself what it be for
    the opportunity should seize
    to make and then maintain the peace.

    ooh, I think I have figured out why pasted links don't work.. just like PH often puts two 'p's in drop... it adds a space after http: .. so be sure to get rid of that unwanted space before pressing 'enter'...

    I love life and life loves me.
    I'm as happy as one could be.
    A happier man nowhere exists.

    I have just posted a poem in Czech - NICOTA. I originally wrote my poem Void in Czech and I wanted to post it as I first wrote it. It seems that no matter what I do, there are 5 words that end up being split into two parts. Does anyone know how I can fix it?

    I see this poemhunter forum
    is empty, though retains decorum
    perhaps the residents are writing
    which is superior to fighting.
    But empty houses do keep humming
    until they know that we are coming
    to shoot the great poetic breeze
    by candlelight and wine and cheese.
    So, do not worry poet Newton
    you will not have to start your tootin'
    as you shall see, they will be back
    and long before you hit the sack.

    I am going to follow that post with a further statement of disgust. We have been asked to partake in a huge people movement (at least in feeling) and you have been too busy on some mickey mouse quest to better yourselves on some quiet corner of the net to notice that you could have been part of something special. Jesus, wake up... WAKE UP! ! ! ! ! You have just missed the train to Revolution... Your next stop..? you decide.

      Sounds as if you should be writing a great poem out of this depth of emotion, Sonja.

      I don't wish to get entrenched in a rich versus poor debate. I come from a working-class background and that goes back for generations. I think that there are kind people who have money and kind peopl ... more

    look, it's obvious that to get angry at the state of the world, the rich people is the way to go... but they could just cut off whenever they bloody well want.. it is when they take the time, with the global influence they DO have, that I am appreciative. Okay, they don't take from their own bank accounts... but I challenge an NGO on the planet to attain the reach that they get all over the world. Let's get some perspective and stop griping. Bill Gates is the richest man in the world.. he gives a percentage of his wealth to charity.. do people want him to give ALL that he has to make it easier for all of us - so we can go back to what we were doing - are we expecting the rich to bail us out of OUR collective chores? We ALL have a responsibility here. I think rock stars pay their way in that they make fans aware (who may not otherwise have been) and therefore engender will and concern worldwide (they even change lives such that people base their careers in care and charity because of their concerts... can any of us pride on soliciting such passion?)

    I think the griping about the statistics here is so bloody futile it makes me furious... shouldn't intelligent people be speaking about REAL... I'll say that again... REEEEAL.. things? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Get it together guys. There is more to life than

    Y O U.
