The steel fortress

is bullet proof

Until someone inside

opens fire

        You pen so well the shock of bullets fired from inside a steel-built partnership - -- a potent three-liner dear Bella.

        • Bella Shepard

          Thank you dear friend. I love your metaphor of a steel-built partnership, you captured it perfectly.

        • Doggerel Dave

          Well Bella, I'm not sure I wanted this: the relationships metaphor consensus lead to a mental rehearsal of possibilities which did not improve my day one whit.....😟

          Never mind, I'm moving on... 🙂

            I am so sorry if I cast a pall upon your day, but sometimes we just grin and bear it. lol

              A fine write Bella.
              Is this the place - steel, and sound-proof, where they hide away from me singing?! heehee.

              • Bella Shepard

                It is, so sing away my friend!

                • orchidee

                  They 'steel' themselves when I feel a song coming on! lol.

                  Bella this is a wise and wonderful statement.

                  • Bella Shepard

                    such a sobering thought .. indeed I doubt I will ever forget this sombre little gem .. Neville
