  1. Many roam the earth unaware of their good fortune. Your poem really captures the hollowness of that way of life. Well done and I love the painting, thought it was a photo at first. Great pairing of the painting with your piece.

  2. An educational slant for one such as me born not quite in poverty but not that far off…I shall count myself as a lucky man who worked hard for everything I now have…thought provoking poem yet just having re-read your book ‘City of Pawns’ (bloody good read by the way) your skills with the pen serve to amaze – Pilings, page 289 a particular favourite by the way.

  3. I liked it. The language was well worked as always, but I feel it could have benefited from the use of punctuation to guide the reader through your thoughts.
    Though I know your stance on this practice in poetry, I am wondering only that it may be used on occasion to help others when you are writing a poem so grounded in personal opinion – where they need guidance for your (and their) sake.
