|You have encapsulated the essence of the last few decades in a dew strokes. Sets you thinking, those lines - 'Awarded a montage of ideologies and the final solution.
For best director and supporting cast,
and a disturbing, ugly, evolution.' I am not sure if all of it was ugly tho- but I do get what you mean.:-) Enjoyed this re-post of yours. -shoma

|Thanks for all your support of my poetry Paul. I feel like a poor friend for not taking the time (before now) to respond to yours. I'm so glad that you've taken the time to repost a selection of your poems. You have so much talent and a wealth of inspiration to draw upon. Looking forward to more from you...

|Absolutely, Paul... in retrospect, "One gigantic leap for mankind, one small step for (ordinary) man... in totally the wrong direction". Suppression of information is an evil in itself, as is the failure to act upon it. This is a totally scarey thought and rather tooooo close to all our bones, I think. Having invented the wheel, why don't we use it to go forwards instead of back? When the whole world is fed, clothed, watered and has CHOICE, then that will be progress and a Brave New World indeed... but it is a slow train comin, init?? Rather than a rocket to the moon.... LOL and TY Kate xx|

Thank you for your kind words, the '75 million others' I refer too are the 75 million souls consumed by conflict in the 20th Century.

|A mise-en-scene of conflict and grief,
That sadly summarizes the last 100 years very well, Paul.
|Reviewed by Debashish Haar
|This is a very good capsule holding our evolution(if that is the terminology!) over the last 100 years. Showmanship has grown, prospered, we have been to the moon and have been trying to communicate with extraterrestrial life. These have been directed and orchastrated by funding agencies and governments, who had their own bindings. Much of the information stays hidden, and what we see is deified! A world of marketing, and commercials and conglomerates! That number "75 million" or "74.7 million" is perhaps the number of people not insured, who may face the harsh world...more directly. I may have missed it, but then your poem has provoked me to think.
