    Nice poem. Liked the flow. A tragic lesson about life. “Pure suffering, what hatred brings, ” agree with the statement. (Report) Reply

    This poem has a nice cadence. Its title, Man in the Sand, is memorable in its own right, and it also caused me to want to read the poem in the first place. It was nice of you to give this subject attention by way of your poem so that the rest of us can reflect on it. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Not a drop of rainwater
    or a mere hunting knife
    to fight for survival
    to end civil strife
    I am thinking you are speaking to the larger injustice of crimes committed against a populace in general
    using this man's family as an example. Will a mere hunting knife end civil strife? Interesting line thought. (Report) Reply
