Re: The Profane

Hooray Another post--NaPo poets are coming back to life slowly but surely. This write needs no music but I did hear some in my head as I read it. Mother Nature in your poem speaks as well for the very vermin she intends to rid herself of, me for instance, I drive a car with an internal combustion en...

Or see what other people here have to say. No doubt they'll say they knew exactly what you intended Image
