The Handicapped

Come in handy Handicapped
Show us how to treasure
What we take for granted
Without having a measure
......
For we can walk
and march for war
For we can speak
but tell all lies
......
Handicapped we are
Though having all we need
With no compasion- mentally ill
Looking so fine- rotten underneath
...

They are all good. I like the "autumn leaves striptease line" very clever!

Thanks a lot Greame.
You know it's strange, but writing poems wasn't someting I was doing until now. Sometimes few words I feel come to my mind and start to follow each other and make verses. Stranger thing is that it comes a lot easier to write in english, though it's not my native language. And I find it nice that in few words I can sometimes say so much. Then once again thank You for the appreciation.
Warm regards
Nika

How was the workshop? I'm anxiously waiting for the report from Germany!
