10 of 12 given words:
blind thread insist until people 
power voice web drum think 

In a blind rage he shoved it down their throat
Bewildered like a mirror shattered in adversity
They countered in threads of different modes
Never to insist a let-up of pain of such intensity

Until he saw that people with power like falling snow
Were of no consequence in the beginning but their voice
quivered as wilted leaves moving even a little slow
Finally realized a web of options not to their choice

Drummed into thick skulls impervious to hard knocks
Unrelenting to think it was plain sailing to break them
Even from among domestic animals like cats and dogs
They offered less resistance than obstinate humans

  1. The kitten seems so innocent in a world full of power hungry people.

  2. cold harsh words can be very unrelenting to animals, little do some persons give a second thought

    much love..

  3. What is that saying? the more I know humans, the more I love my dog...........we can learn much from the critters. Well done, Hank.

  4. Maybe obedience is less important than loyalty.. and there we can learn from cats and dogs.

  5. Cats and dogs are better than most humans any day of the week.

  6. What a contrast between a kitten and power-seeking humans.

  7. People who allow things to be shoved down their throats, give those people with "co-called" authority their power. Animals are smarter than that!

  8. Our perception of beauty or cuteness in animals or each other sadly has nothing to do with the character or demeanor they possess. Cute cats can scratch!

  9. sometimes humans do fail miserably and animals are better...

  10. Some challenging words but you pulled it off.

  11. I think we can learn a lot from our furry friends...heaven knows they sometimes are a lot more compassionate and wiser! (plus cute pic ;)

  12. My this was great to read, Well done Hank.
