Good for your soul like rock n roll
Joe Dawson said:

\'Good for the soul, like rock & roll\' should be put to music - the music of friends. Burns off the blues a treat. The bee\'s knees. Joe

Joe Dawson said:

It sometimes happens that; you start a poem and the poem takes over, you mastered it well. Good read. Joe.

Good friends are so special, the conversation may be meaningless but totally coherent between you.

Calling all Angels
Jooles said:

Oh I will look it up, what a lovely thought to be an Earth Angel. I live in Scotland and although we have our issues and are without shame and blame, some of the stories from around the world terrify me. Thanks for the comments.

Calling all Angels
Jo March said:

This is such a wonderful poem! I really enjoyed it. I think this precisely what our world needs. We need hope and we have to call all the angels to help us. We particularly need their wisdom, their sympathy, their help... Thank you so much for this poem! It is so inspiring...

How should I feel
Claudelle DeLuna said:

Great poem!
P.S.
I like it because it is a feeling that at any given point for X reason we might all encounter. Hoping to learn from it & moving on to the next chapter.
Blessings!

How should I feel
dusk arising said:

I love the repeated question in your piece. For right there and then its a huge question. A feeling of being abused, undervalued, dishonoured, taken for granted, used.... all of these and more but no single word suffices.

Goldfinch60 said:

Unfortunately life is like that but I am sure that perseverance will prevail.

Goldfinch60 said:

Great attitude. I have always supported equality throughout my long life, I am 70 this year. My wife and I have always shared the work in the house up until recently where through her illness i now have to do it but that is how life is.
Equality should be the norm, I cannot understand why people just cannot see this.
I agree with ll that you have said and if people have a problem with that it is their problem, not yours.

BRIAN & ANGELA said:

Love your ATTITUDE JOOLS ~ You are my kind of WOMAN. The World has been patriarchal for much too long and as a MERE MAN engaged to a very strong Woman (ANGELA) I agree with Gender Equality right across the Board. You will notice I have included ANGELA in my pen-name ~ BRIAN & ANGELA and added another DOVE in my LOGO ~ OK ! Angela wanted to spend a Year in NZ before we are married ~ which I happily consented to because we have an equal partnership ! God created Eve very different from ADAM ~ but his equal in every aspect ! In the UK we have had an amazing QUEEN for 65 years and our PM is a Lady and out of 365 MP\'s She is the best person for the JOB which requires a MULTI-TASKER ~ AMEN Thanks for caring & sharing Hugs ~ BRIAN & ANGELA. Please check my Poem \"FUSION\" and add a Poem to my FUSION ~ Thanks B ! Loved you poem ~ very elegant and a powerful message !

Bonnie and Clyde
Syd said:

Hi Jools, I love this poem. It reminds me of a poem I wrote for my wife. The title is Partner In Crime and the picture is of Bonnie & Clyde.

Take care - Syd

BRIAN & ANGELA said:

HI JOULES ~ Welcome back ~ missed you for a Month ~ Love the Poem ~ BONNIE & CLYDE are always inspirational ~ sorry the had to die so young ! Love the way you have presented the White on Deep Blue ~ like a MEXICAN TILE ! Mi Casa es Tu Casa ! I note you re-posted it on the 14th ~ identical an interesting ploy ! Trouble is the menu on MPS is only visible for two days !
This is a beautifully written poem FIVE neat quatrains and a consistent Rhyme pattern abab cdcd efef etc ~ Rhythmic to read and Vibrant to recite like a good poem should be ! The content is great as well and the story flows from line 1

Verse 1. Badness & excitement ~ best couple of years !
Verse 2. Manic grin wild eyes ~ feedin\' from weak growin\' strong ~ romantic (and trigger happy !)
Verse 3. People count for nothing ~ shootin\' killin\' movin\' on !
Verse 4. Clyde is \"uncatchable\" ~ too cool and I\'m shaped in his image ~ fightin\' side by side to our deaths !
Verse 5. \"One body of badness\" (love that expression !) We\'ll live for ever ~ TOGETHER !
Alas BONNIE was only 23 and CLYDE 25 when they died in a hail of Police Bullets after a JAIL BREAKOUT ~ so so sad !

Thanks for sharing ~ great poem ~ Yours as ever BRIAN ~ Please check my Poems ~ Thanks B !
