Frivolity…ah, ‘tis the curse of our generation-
Destroying our families, anihilating nations.
Fun…and foolishness…how sad; they captivate the mind
How difficult..nay, worse than that- a sober mind to find.
Where are the pioneers of thought, who made our nation great?
Our lack of knowledge profits naught, and leads us to our fate.
Are our Da Vinci’s slain before..they see the light of day?
And warriors, heros, never born…to enter in the fray?
I seek the banquet of the mind, to sit and drink and sup-
To quaff of knowledge to my fill, then pass along the cup.

I couldn't agree more. Excellent writing, Gunslinger.

Gunslinger, your skill is remarkable, and that your work has such a message each time...just slays me.

To quaff of knowledge to my fill, then pass along the cup."

Cheers, my friend.

GS,

Bravo....bravi....bravissimi....


 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
