Chaos for Poetry Jam.

Sifting through the chaos.















Like blind men inspecting the elephant,
Finding the clues that are relevant
Can be tricky, I know
So we need to show
Much more than the subjective element.



Here is the poem Helen referred to in her comment about the six blind men and the elephant.

    Yes, we must be clever in getting at issues to offer good solutions.

  3. I've always loved the last two lines of that poem .. 'though each was partly in the right, and all were in the wrong.'

    True depending on where you stand. Your jam tastes mighty fine ......

  8. This is divine. And your wit, cosmic.

    Plus you smelt cool and minty on the dancefloor too.

    Cheers, Stafford!

  11. I keep misspelling things - sorry. Very masterful. Very impressive. Who would've thought anyone could find a rhyme for elephant. When you've found a rhyme for orange I will rename you the Limerick Dalai Lama, sitting on the mountain!
