My Review of Yo, Ho, Ho! by richom
Been there, done that! New
Not entirely true but I have spent quite a while at sea in my lifetime. Perhaps it would not be a wise choice especially regarding the food! So good to read rhyming poetry Richard, WN seems to have been taken over by short story's and free verse at the moment. Thoroughly enjoyed this two part "Will I or won't I" piece and I would be the first to say Don't spend your elderly years at sea, enjoy your Golf. Keep on writing while you still can. Take care Rod.

My Review of His Mother's Words by michaelgallatin
Fully Agree.
I often think of how my Mum was my "work-force" I still remember everything she told me when it came to calming me down. As you say the Mother is almost like a part of your "Engine" something that was installed when you were a toddler. I have forgotten a multitude of things from my childhood but nothing that my Dear old Mum taught me. Take care Mike. Rod.

My Review of I'll Gladly Do You by michaelgallatin
Been there, done that!
Not your usual type of posting but very understandable, By the way I am also in the 43years category so I know what you mean. "I have no connection with an erection" just a quick attempt at joining your poem Mike resulting from Diabetes. Very well constructed and also related to the older age group who will familiarise with the content. Take care. Rod.

My Review of The Walking Wounded by michaelgallatin
Keep walking
This is a great poem and I really do agree with the walking wounded category that it refers to. Yes there is pain but I suppose that is what gives us reason to battle on and try to diminish the over-riding factor. As they say "Life is what you make it" so basically if we are not happy with what we have it is our fault. Heck I'd better stop before I have an attack of depression! Loved this Mike Keep them coming. SL Rod.

My Review of Thoughts Both Long And Deep by michaelgallatin
Ditto
Life is what we make it Mike and I can see that you have certainly put a lot of effort into yours. Very interesting and so easy to relate to. That's Life as the song says. Take care Rod.

My Review of Audacity by clb520

My Review of No Place Like Home by clb520
Home sweet home
Sounds like a perfect place to be, I would like to do just that but I'm afraid the Rats and foxes might get me. One of the joys of living in the country!! Very enjoyable piece Thanks for sharing. Rod.

My Review of Time To Kill by michaelgallatin
Interesting
You have opened my eyes with this one Mike, love to know what provoked it and hope there is no connection between you and him. Only kidding. The trouble is there are people like this amongst us and when they are finally caught we are more than just surprised we are amazed that they had the ability to fool the public of their guilt. Great poem Mike and very thought provoking. Keep your door locked SL Rod.

My Review of Winter Song by Stella
Just what I need
A really lovely seasonal piece Stella, I find that Christmas as we knew it is only remembered by the Older generation so it is a treat to read something that covers that era. Winter is fast becoming very different than it used to be but then so is everything. Thanks for putting me back on form. Take care Rod.

My Review of Fingers by richom
Plucky!
I really enjoyed this one Richard, I read all through then went back to try and find a string plucking instrumental piece. maybe I am too much of a music lover. Please keep this sort of entertaining poem coming on as the way things are going world-wide we need this form of entertainment. Take care Old Mate. SL Rod.

My Review of Beautiful Angels by michaelgallatin
Back together
A really great and touching poem Mike, in fact if this was me I would be looking forward to joining them. Lovely content and also thought provoking for many of us "Oldies" My problem here is that I cannot remember old friends Names and although they may be angels I do not know who's who !! Definitely SL worthy Mike. Take care Rod.

My Review of One Brief Look by michaelgallatin
Been there, done that!
Never look in the mirror after you have indulged in celebrations Mike. I have and wondered who the Hell is that looking back at me. Whiskey tends to cause wrinkles so I have to put up with visual nightmares!! Very enjoyable piece and a good start to the New Year. Thanks for cheering me up. Rod.

My Review of SANTA CAME! by kitty
Coincidental?
Good old Santa although I didn't think he had the time to rumble on the rug thought he would be much too busy! Really good humorous piece Kitty, I hope Santa didn't perform this rumble affair in every home he visited. Take care and beware of Santa next year!! Rod.

My Review of ROMANTIC INTERLUDE by kitty
Back together
So good to read your latest Kitty, it has been a while. My brain seems to have given up the chase for a poem at the moment but I reckon it will return, a few Christmas whiskies will help. I am sure you will not have to go to Mars to dance and I am sure that happiness will come to those who wait especially those of your calibre. Take care and enjoy Christmas. Rod.

My Review of A Little Crazy by michaelgallatin
Been there, done that!
This is a really mind re-active piece and I can understand all the pent up feelings that this situation causes. I also have loads of trouble with memory loss and a Hazy Crazy mind. Well written and well meant, Thank you Mike this is well worth SL Rod.

My Review of A Christmas Sonnet by Stella
Time has changed
Lovely poem Stella but unfortunately this portrays Christmas as it used to be. Nowadays is a totally different occasion or so it seems to my age group. Carol singing on the doorstep and a sock with the minimum of little treats discovered in the early hours of Christmas morning made Christmas then a visit to the church to praise the Lord. Times change. thanks for posting this one and have a Happy Christmas yourself. SL Rod.

My Review of Crisis at Christmas by richom

Poor old Santa, nothing worse than drunken working staff. Of course Rudolf likes a drink, who doesn't. Great piece as usual Richard and it is good to see that you are still kicking. Have a great Christmas Old Mate I will raise a glass and drink your health on Christmas day and also drink a tot for Rudolf. take care Rod.

My Review of It's Xmas ...again by Abra
Fully Agree.
Great little poem with a really well intended feature. Why not have Christmas every other year, I agree. It has become , like so many other events, a money making business grabbing nightmare. Well done, oh and by the way, Happy Christmas to you. SL Rod.

My Review of PREDITORS by kitty
Mother Who?
Nature seems to have grasped you by the throat Kitty, when Mother Nature does as you say in your poem, reconstructs "Land to the Sea" she must be almost off of her head to find that there is no land left, the human has covered land with concrete!! Lovely moving piece Kitty, well done. take care Rod.

My Review of WHY? by kitty
Good luck!
Really good piece here Kitty, a little sad but also very meaningful. Who ever it is written for I wish them all the luck in the world. Haven't written anything for a while but maybe a few Christmas whiskies will give me a push. Take care Rod.

My Review of IN THE WILD by kitty
Fully understand
Humans are the strangers in this world Kitty, we think we know it all yet when it comes to nurturing nature yet we are responsible for most of the fatalities suffered by them. Nice to see you back here on the old WN. take care Rod.

My Review of The Bonanza by richom
Coincidental?
I spend most of my time complaining about the dangerous behaviour of our youngsters with their mobile phones Richard, crashing into people while they are texting etc. Even driving a car whilst texting is common place. Enough, a very interesting piece as always old mate. We now have young mothers pushing their baby in a buggy while smoking and concentrating on their phones. Will things ever change? I think not. Enjoyed this Richard it made my blood pressure rise which is a good thing for me Thanks. Take care Rod.

My Review of Conquest Ethic by BobQuinn
Coincidental?
Loved it Bob but I never behaved in this way, but then I was never a Norseman! Great content and an enjoyable read also it is a rhyming poem which is becoming a rarity these days. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that WN will stay with us. take care and thanks for leading me in this direction. SL Rod.

My Review of You Can't Flip Off Trump! (True story/my opinion) by michaelgallatin
Play the trump card
Very amusing but also a subject that seems to be gathering speed both in the US and the UK. Freedom of speech appears to be lost when it comes to politics. What a crazy world we're living in!! Keep them coming Mike but be careful what you say or it might be you that gets sacked. take care Rod.
