I wrote this in 1982...

A rose is a rose...

As long as it's a flower.

A king is a king...

As long as he has power.

A star is a star...

As long as it shines.

A jail is a jail...

As long as it confines.

A man is a man...

As long as he does'nt lose face.

A woman is a woman...

As long as she stays full of grace.

I Salute You - daughter of The Great Poet, "As long as..." you synchronize wonders.

"As long as..." is what poesy is meant for. This poem does all that Poetry means... strikes imagination, feeds intuition, enchants, teaches and flies the readers' souls on the wings of beauty.

I thank the Author of "As long as..." for sharing beauty and grace.

I love this one; it is now in my library.

Politics, Poetry and Love in the Obama Age by Lonnie Hicks

This is a large volume of poetry (560 pps) which seeks to capture the spirit and issues ordinary individuals (myself included) struggle with here at the on-set of the Obama Age.
