I am back again with another post from my archives. This was written in 2011. After reading this, I really wonder what was going through my mind as I penned this down…I really wish…   Souls moan in anguish of our cruelty Hens return to roost The goats stop bleating Birds cease to fly Men retire to their bosom And lovers cling to each other Vehicles seek their parking lot…
