Hello Frank,

 

 

In the present climate of conflicts in many parts of the world, your poem is wonderfully pithy.

Even a single enemy is too many and a thousand friends too few - Bhutanese saying.

What inspired this, Frank? Sounds very musical.

 

Dylan always inspires me Lake. I just liked the sound of the initial line and went from there. Thanks Tony and Golden. Frank

How many roads must a man walk down

Before you call him a man?

Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail

Before she sleeps in the sand?

Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly

Before they're forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,

The answer is blowin' in the wind.

 

protests like Dylan's voice: i have nothing to say but sing rhyme his song and going forth to change the world!
