Dave - - I like that sometimes your haikus are like homework assignments. I wind up having to google or grab a newspaper to keep up. Thanks!

I second Carl's comment, Dave. I've just looked up the story; fascinating!

ArtistUnplugged said...

Yes, interesting!

Everyone wants to keep out the riff-raff. What to do about the riff-raff already in there???

From Therese B. -- For me, "Potsdam" recalls the 1945 conference of victors after WWII. And "the wall" recalls for me the Berlin wall. Weighty poem!

I have said it before and I will say it again Dave - you are as good as a newspaper (and much cheaper)

Oh my, this has been proposed in exclusive (no kidding) Sun Valley, Idaho as well.

Aren't we all just bricks in the wall of life even the riff-raff and property owners.

Well thanks, in return. I'm surprised that being given homework assignments merits thanks, though. It wasn't always that way!

Derrick
Yes, I thought it pretty incredible.

ArtistUnplugged
Thanks .

TechnoBabe
Ah, answer that and you could make yourself a fortune!

Indeed, the wall that the property owners have built/rebuilt coincides with a section of the old Berlin Wall.

The Weaver of Grass
You don't get all the supplements from me, though.

Conda
People are the same the world over, I guess.

Windsmoke
Yes, I guess so, put like that.

Rachel
Do tell!
