    Nice piece there 'misinterpretation' or a 'suppressed advocator of truth'.
    Good work, Elaine

    Loved this piece primarily as it felt like you are championing the words of a specific person and feel they have been misinterpreted or represented... Really liked the unfenced paddocks suggesting freedom of speech... Tyvm karen (Report) Reply

    Very good poem Elaine For truth 10 and for your interest from Tagore
    Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
    Where the knowledge is free...
