Great respecters of poetry
forgive a poet his sins
for their regard for poetry.

They forgive him for his theme,
Disregard for Others,
or say they cannot see a sin,
his theme, Regard for Others.

They argue the toss
But seeing there's a bit of both,
surrender to others' decision,
Inclusion or excision.

    Bill Henson

    Art is art and perverted by others without the artists core of truth, beauty, freedom and love.


    Jim Henson

    Acceptance the inclusion of fault and perfection simultaneously without agenda or discrimination. War not make one great and denial of reality is failure. If it was then it was possible, if it was not, it was possible but not realised. Do or do not! There is no try! It's not easy being green.

    Jen: Wings? I don't have wings!
    Kira: Of course not. You're a boy.
