The kids may have received conflicting messages about the potential
consequences of outrageous behavior. And another unspoken theme is single
mothers who are in conflict with their children father and using the child
as a wedge, or overcompensating by indulging misbehavior out of a feeling
of guilt at not having an intact family life..

Dispatchers say the call was to a gravel pit area near Port Farms in
Waterford. The effect was not due to a difference in pain sensitivity or
general learning ability. Throughout the village Mick is hotly suspected of

look like a car accident.

as a very new fan of e. e. cummings, i have very little i can claim in the
way of expertise in this realm. but i would point out one observation which
struck me while reading this. i believe that there is a great deal of the
poem that concerns the will and motivation behind action. cummings
introduces a number of characters from nature. in each of these scenes, the
character is about to engage in an action which is otherwise be natural,
but which, is hampered through the imposition of some human absurdity.
there is a sense here in which nature is superior to man in that it acts
out of the compulsion of its design rather than the stipulations of its
legal and ideological code. it acts and exists irrespective of all other
orders and institutions.

actually as far as i am concerned cummings appreciates the animal than
human beings .he conveys the message that unless those things which he
mentioned about in the poem occur human beings are note liable to be called
animal .

It's quite simple. Live your life with good and gracious intentions. Then,
when you die and go to heaven, all shall be revealed. Very simple.
