|Sage, you are one of a kind...indeed! I'm glad you are just one so we can keep up with you. Your mind verses go everywhere and leaves nothing out. I bet your brain still hums when you sleep. Great satire in your poetry and I'm happy, too....that we don't stone anyone anymore. A lot of us would be Stone cold(pun) then.
Congrats and love,

|The Grand Ole Opry stage will never be the same, once the stars get to hitting the high orgasmic notes in these lines - whew. Scorcher! And very well penned, Sage.

|Okay. Seems you have covered what needed to be covered and said in this sweet little ballad which I'm sure will be cut and promoted by the High Mountain Colorado Jew Harp and Banjo Jugtime Band with solo performances by Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Phil . . . I'll be on the front row checking out the available cooz.|
