Footnote: To A Potato-Mouthed Hick

No more of this ruse:

if I dash off a tanka

to describe your lack

of couth---yours---I have,

in heart, judged you already.

Thank you Stephen for

Thank you Stephen for bringing me here. Clearly, this is about judging people. Not very Christian. I know Stephen is agnostic, but if you may be swayed by believing, and you seem to be judging me. In reply to that, and this excellently crafted poem Jeriel has written, may I refer you to Matthew 7:1-5. Judging is not our job ;)

We all make judgements every day.

Some people make them for you.  Stephen
