It would be horrible to have in one's life a person who was lacking in all the things you mention in your poem. But what a blessing it would be to have a friend who possessed all these qualities.

Good luck in the contest. Yes, a world without these things would be like our ancestors, the cavemen; alas we are retreating backwards to a time of barbarism. No respect for anyone or anything. We are fighting a losing battle to the Lord of Darkness. It is up to us to turn it around to LOVE.

THANK YOU! I don't know about anyone else but that really helped me. Sometimes when we find ourselves in despair or feel that we just don't fit anywhere; It helps to be reminded that we do indeed matter. Well Done!

This is so sad. surely there is love and acceptance somewhere. We want and need to be accepted, warts and all. And don't we all have many warts and foibles - I sure do. A good poem to remind what is important in life.

Your words are proven true for me every time I watch an hour or more of news, most of which makes my hair stand straight up and five minutes on a touching human interest story makes me smile! Your poem is short and powerful.

I'm glad that you ended the list with a human, whoever that human may be.

For the rest, it seems that many of the qualities you mention are at risk. Perhaps they always have been. But technology makes these limitations more obvious.

Nobody wants to live in a horrible world. So I guess we have to take whatever collective steps we can to prevent this.

Good luck in the contest, 13th

Blessings Julia

Me? I'm touched!

Seriously, Roddy, whether it is intentional or not, you have described
my living nightmare. He's living in the White House. And he's contagious.

I apologize if I politicized your poem, my friend. But it strikes so close to home. Horror is where you find it.

Best of luck.

Peace, Lee

    Hello Lee. A fantastic Friday to you my friend. Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed it. No need to apologize for how you see things. The fact of the matter is that we are fast moving towards a world like that. I fear that if he's not impeached or voted out in 2020 we will be there with very little hope of turning back.

I like what you have done with this prompt - going beyond the tradition gore and fanfare of mainstream horror and into the truth. This poem is what people should fear most. Well done and happy Friday!

    Yes I think we all should fear this. Thank you for your time and review.

Another fine poem, Roddy--and it's so true--I can't believe how far our nation, indeed the world, has fallen, it seems in the blink of an eye, and I don't see anything changing unless some people wake up from their sleepwalking trance, and of that happening, I don't have much hope.

    Hello Mike my man, thanks for your review. Yeah, I don't have much hope either. If they don't impeach him or he isn't voted out, we will be headed towards that horrible world at break neck speed, with little to no hope of returning.

Certainly, a world without the qualities you've mentioned would be pretty horrible but then the very worst thing for the author would be to be without whoever YOU is. This is cleverly written and a bit different. Good luck in the contest.
