A fine write. I\'m sure the intention is not to embarrass or degrade. They would say (I hope) it\'s to help you. I understand your situation though.
I suppose some things may be \'done to us\', like it or not. I\'ve had times of \'not liking\', but not many medical things.
Thinking of you.

It takes your health , your hope , your loved one\'s ability to cope . It collects your time , your thoughts and your very intimidated mind . It tramples dignity and flaunts it to the world . Who am I ?

The intricate exposure which constantly takes over you express so bravely and so so cleverly - - discomfort is not to be taken lightly and you highlight its greed. A scene with pictures and verse which none will forget - keep up that warrior attitude dear friend. Thoughts and prayers are with you . xxx

Having just recently met you here, Augustus, I am not familiar with your back story, knowing you only as a brilliant poet. I hope not, but suspect, that this poem is a personal one. My heartfelt sympathy if this is so.
I lost my dearest friend in this life to cancer, and he/we went through this same scenario. It\'s a bitch, anyway you slice it! Kudos on this fine poem. I feel you.

swingline said:

Yes we live in a frightening time in the world today . Here in the U.S. we are just one executive order from destroying democracy . But like early Christianity persecution is the norm not the exception . With more accumulation of wealth at the top comes more power . And as the president of the U.S. has shown he is all about more power and oppression and subjugation .

Love the picture you chose. Makes me think of your poem in that what could happen if we swing out too far, that is being too risky in our behavior and choices. Really like the style of this work. :)

Very good write. The war in Vietnam was atrocious, so many people killed or maybe even worse cruelly wounded in both body and mind.
