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.

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

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

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
