Can I just say what a aid to search out someone who really knows what
theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how one can
convey a difficulty to gentle and make it important. More individuals must
learn this and perceive this aspect of the story. I cant consider youre no
more in style since you definitely have the gift.

Humanity i love you

I have three favorite poems...Ozymandias by P.B. Shelley, Raisin in the Sun
by Langston Hughes and Humanity i love you by e.e. cummings.

...."that you would rather black the boots of success than enquire whose
soul dangles from his watch chain". In other words, we fawn over the rich
and famous, envy them, try to be them but never stop to consider what we
corrupt within ourselves along the road of becoming. The Portrait of
Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is an interesting and excellent extension of
this theme. Can anyone actually achieve great financial success without
sacrificing their soul...and the souls of many others? Were we all not so
willing to throw principles aside to achieve our personal "success", this
would be a much different and more beautiful world. Just ask Bernie Madoff,
Hosni Mubarek or Kadafi...or maybe Bill Clinton, George Bush or Barak
Obama. Just how many souls are dangling from those watch chains?

the last lines are a redemption of mankind.
cummings does not stray from sarcasm even at the end, and perhaps
begrudgingly, turns his condemnation on its head because of mankind's
willingness to "make poems in the lap of death" (create in the midst of its
own suffering, mortality and denial)
