Margaret Alice Second's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: The Corporate Hymn by tom billsborough (4/11/2016 3:33:00 AM)

    Your verse seems to point out how salesmen serve the god of money and how the whole corporate shebang - mission and vision statement - make money, lots of money, become a religion that replaces all other moral considerations - am I right? The life of the little commercial agent in the big world of corporate finance, bureaucracy is the liturgy and administration its rites - do I interpret your poem correctly? Your poem is very impressive...

  • POEM: Pinkas Synagogue by tom billsborough (4/11/2016 3:28:00 AM)

    So well written, thank you. My mind is occupied by the question, HOW could their jailers and wardens sink so low to imprison and suppress other people? The answer is even more horrifying: They could only do so because their own emotional troubles deadened their sensitivities. Remember the prison commanders and let us never forget that emotional insensitivity and confusion is too dangerous to allow to fester.

  • POEM: Care Home by tom billsborough (4/11/2016 3:21:00 AM)

    The sense of sadness and abandonment is poignant and the poem flows beautifully. I always sing while walking through the old-age home and irritate some people while others wave and smile. I hope to die in my sleep before being reduced to such a state and IF I end up there, I'll still sing and drive everybody nuts - this gives me such sadistic pleasure to think how I'll harass the peaceful place - singing Whispering Hope' at the top of my voice. Thank you for addressing such a pertinent question in so adroit a way.
