Many congrats Mac. I remember this poem well. I thought it was excellent when I read it here and still think so. It’s got such a strong ending.

Cheers,

Tristan

Well done, mac, I don't recall seeing that poem on PG.
I'm out of faith and in my cups
I contemplate such bitter stuff.

Congrats, Mac. Yes, I remember that one.
We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.
