    Awesome! I am now a fan of the formerly unfamiliar Mr. Kemp! How often do we look down upon others when in the end there are so many who can look down upon we? This man is a genius poet - and now on my list. (Report) Reply

    Citizen no more

    New world probability
    Pact agreed society
    Can-do possibility
    Fore the days of yore (Report) Reply

We wish that one should love, the other win;
