Another excellent write, Richard. I'm reminded of the Apostle Paul who said in Philippians 3:8 "Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ."
Your work is much admired!

|Richard this is remarkably persuasive and powerful.
I can't say I've been...very good lately...so there is the aspect of wanting to go hide in a corner. But I think this a wonderful work.

|Thank you for this, Richard, not simply because I aways
admire and envy the depth of your brilliant writing, but
also because (I'm told] I can use a bit of healthy sanity.

|Scimitar, scythe or any cutting or cleaving instrument..Richard goes well beyond mere rant in this eloquent, thought-through work which makes the reader sit up straight and take full notice.

|this is very well done and powerful! the whole thing feels like an electrical storm building massive energy in the atmosphere waiting, building, waiting, building, waiting, building, waiting for a disacharge---BOSH!! last line like lightning almost frightens, surprises, catches one off-guard, penetrates the skin, circumnavigates pre-emtpive cover-taking or mental defenses because it happens so fast. and the book of enoch is amazing. i sometimes wonder why they left that stuff out? good stuff richard.|

|A powerful poem, Richard. This one really stands up and demands attention. What with our wonderful President always on vacation...I'm sure he'll clean up this planet in no time. An excellent write. Love and Hugs,

|wow you've read the Book of Enoch..that alone speaks volumes...much rant within this expression..."spiritual contriteness"...seems judgmental for an awakening being or seeker who would read, in my humble opinion, of course. However, it does get and brings a reader to abrupt attention, perhaps its intent?|

|A fine tribute to our savior and Lord, my fine wordsmith. I am impressed at the emotional havoc you let slip here; there is something rare and rich about the curved arc in the first stanza as each word diminishes in length, but accumulates in intensity, a kind of ideological inversion that works wonderfully well, escalating towards the finish with the finesse of comparative efficacy that leaves us all indebted to the one through whom we must proceed if we are to attain any kind of true righteousness at all. I praise God he has paid the debt, and secured sanctification, for outside of Jesus we would all be lost in the mire you have so admirably expressed.|
