LOL. OK. I don't consider this 'better' because its less 'ornate'. But thanks for that. I know a little meter and wordplay to you is like Kyrptonite to Superman. You're nothing if not consistent. -LP

    I don't mind a little meter and word play as long as they improve the poem overall, instead of poking out of the poem's corpus like a forgotten surgical sponge..

      You know where I stand: 'ornate' beats flat and banal. But thats my opinion. You're welcome to yours. The two sides shall never meet. -LP
