Society: Society can suddenly turn into a mob mentality pretty easily.

I Was Shocked: My sister was rational recently. Still reeling. A lot better out there if emoting will eventually coalesce as solutions and less defining the ills. I wish you peace. ~S~

Presently The Haze: Is wonder and bewilderment. Is fear and isolation. Joy never left, it is handcuffed in the back of a paddywagon America. Good times will roll again. I have to believe that when I wake up. ~S~

Tears: U made me cry - so much hope here. Sorrow and joy collide - that you write about the tragedy, the infamy, is elevating and enlightening. Such pure heartedness is rare. ~ Stella ~

My parents were very much: My parents were very much like that---every setback or reversal I experienced was always blamed on my failure to comply with some rule in which they believed.  In the autumn of my senior year at high school, I begin, metaphorically, to venture out from their shadow a bit (announcing to them that I wanted to be a poet was the beginning, and it sure did bring the house into an uproat), and finding out that their view of reality, the world, and so forth, was just as weird as the stuff of which they had accused me.

I like your allusion to the: I like your allusion to the Declaration of Independence.  For decades, the colonies chafed under several corrupt aspects of the British Parliament:  like members elected to the House of Commons to line their pockets; or the societal control wielded by the House of (hereditary) Lords; or the disproprotionate representation (one country rural borough consisted of five qualified voters who elected two representatives to the Commons, while the neaby industrialized city of Hull, with hundreds of thousands of qualified voters, elected only one representative to the same House); and, of course, as we know, none of the British colonies were granted electoral franchise.  A relatively small handful of people enacted laws, in the evening after tea time, which affected the largest colonial operation in history up to that time without any regard for the effect on the local populations.  We revolted against that system, and yet rebuilt it into our own subsequent practice.  Perhaps it is the cost of having a democracy, at least on paper.

I usually do not care for: I usually do not care for poems that feature imperfect rhymes (like twirl/world) but I sure will make an exception for this beautiful love poem.  However, I do not understand the attribution to Darin Haffner.  Are these his words or yours?  I just want to know to whom I should submit this comment, to acknowledge the beauty of this excellent poem.

Starward commented on: + 27.225 MHz 84: For Those Who Criticize What They Know Not by Starward 14 hours 50 min ago
Thank you.  I have in my PM's: Thank you.  I have in my PM's a couple of messages from a person who seems to judge the Faith by my practice of it.  The objection, presented in those messages, was that my poetry should not attempt some of its subjects, despite the precedent of the Song of Solomon.  I almost bought into the objection until I noticed the fallacy.  But I think it still needs to be stated that only the members of an institution can fully judge it.  At college, I disliked some of the behaviors of the fraternity/sorority system; but, since they had do not personal harm to me, nor disrupted my life there in any way, I could not possibly have had grounds of fairness to judge them.  I hope that makes sense.  Anyhow, thank you for the comment; your insights always amaze me.

75%: 1 in 4 out of work predicted. Self employment may be the best way back to prosperity for the 25%.
