    Mr. Hayes, I am honoured.

    Surgical as always. Brilliant encapsulation of our current, and some would say perpetual, condition.

      History has not ended. Nor has myth.

      Thank you, Dwayne

      "....poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
      In the valley of its making where executives
      Would never want to tamper, flows on south
      From ranches of isolation and the busy griefs,
      Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives,
      A way of happening, a mouth."

      W H Auden - In Memory of W.B. Yeats

      Is the light dying, Rhymist?

      "Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
      Because their words had forked no lightning they
      Do not go gentle into that good night."

      Dylan Thomas

        In aggregate - not to my specific knowledge. As for the moment by moment? Every single day in some fashion or another.

        Rhetorical question 😉

      We learn yet fall for the same deceit.Individual wisdom always trumped by a collection of fools. Great poem

        Thank you, Parkinsonspoet, 'trumped' indeed. In signing on Bannon as his chief licensed assassin, the orange Messiah may have just chosen his own Judas. Strange turns ahead.

      Wow! I am dissected by the comments. Need lightning to put me back together.

        The moon is immune to lightning, lunar glide, though not lightening, thank gods!
