Yo. Read some Poe.

Yo. Read some Poe. Does anyone really read Poetry anymore? We amp-up all info-rushed in blinking blurs of tapping texts of obscured austerities upon our digitized screens. What of the classics, the poets of all-time? Whose stage-showed verbiage taught the

‘Over the Top’ ~ Battle of the Somme

The Battle of the Somme was considered one of the most devastating battles of World War One. The initial battle charge of the British/French and Allied forces into the ‘No Man’s Land’ battlefront started promptly at 7:30 am on the morning of July 1, 1916. This first offensive attempt by the Allies was preceded for as many as 5 days of artillery barrage of well-over a million munition shells into the front line and surrounding trench fortifications of the German troops prior to the 1st of July. The Battle of the Somme continued on for 141 consecutive days, resulting in immense loss of lives and debilitating injuries in the millions. This event was neither the beginning, nor the end of the war.

Ode on a Grecian ‘Earn’

Thou ravaged bride of quieted schemes, Thou loathsome child born of troubled times seen. Hence forth into turmoils, anguish and woe, For many years now your economy slows. What dubious notions have you foreseen? The lackluster trades?, A minus GDP?
