Powerful poem. Says a lot in so little and doesn't waste words. This must be very difficult to do, condensing thoughts and ideas in as few words as possible. I mean, it's easier to ramble on than to make each word count. A grave topic gravely told.

it's an experiment. trying to see if it could make sense, and also sound poetic at the same time.

thanks

Superb Roy,

In my line of work, you'll get A+ for this poem. I like short but complete lines. There are no words wasted. It goes straight for the jugular vein. Ouch! Bravo!
