Pray tell… Log in to Reply shadiat @ (Writer - 8274 pts) says: October 19, 2012 at 1:48 am The ‘boy’ part na (which could also be ‘girl’). It gives me the impression that u look (or looked) down on ur critics; like they’re immature.

Is the Herod in your poem the same with the Herod that wanted to marry his niece during the era of John the baptist.

And of course it’s the same Herod but Herods by extension mean great men, good or evil, I suppose Log in to Reply Ohmston Weth @ (Scribe - 19124 pts) says: October 18, 2012 at 1:55 pm Thank you sah.

The beauty of a poem is in its appeal to other external minds. Gimme back my 10 points o. I said, gimme back my 10 points, or… The poem looks like a good work..

If you were quite observant, you would realise that I wrote this poem over three years ago and I’ve been too lazy to edit it since then. I’m sure you won’t have d problem of cloaked themes in my more recent works. Thanks for stopping by sir, and as for your ten points, I’m certain you wnt miss them.
