The same to me are somber days and gay.
Though Joyous daw...

The United Nations h

The United Nations have always taken aotncis to intervened a country if it believes that the government in that country has killed their citizens. This is good. It gives people justice in front of a global jury. However, sometimes power inside the UN is not absolutely equal and decisions are hugely influenced by a few dominant nations.

I loved this poem. Formal poems haven't gotten the the attention and admiration they duly deserve.

Dorothy Parker gives us this very complex poem, and serves it to us in this smooth, and wholesome dish. She pulls the rentrement with ease, and her statements and counterstatements blended in perfectly...and if one wasn't paying the utmost attention, you wouldn't have even realized the repeating lines.

Bravo to Dorothy Parker, for showing us what formal poems are capable of, and this is truly a highly recommended reading for anyone who wants to read an exquisite piece of poetry.

David Aratea from United States
