Linemen and Washerwomen

I have noticed that when the environment becomes harder, women tend to become a bit more feminine. It has even been said that feminism is merely a side-effect of comfort and prosperity. In any case, I thought this was a nice addition to the annals of the sexes working together.

The banality of Hillary Clinton

Somebody imagines a New Yorker cover:

Note that the “genius” designer spelled Margaret Mead incorrectly. And Dian Fossey.

See if you can find any other errors …

Petals on the Ground

The small, white petals
run about on the ground
in the wind like children
in a playground, with no
mind for me: and if I
were gone next year,
the playing would go on.

“A Stable Father Prevents the Early Onset of Puberty”

A review article by Connor Murphy:

http://www.xyz.net.au/a-stable-father-prevents-the-early-onset-of-puberty/

” … it stands to reason that children are consciously and subconsciously aware if they are under the care and protection of an adult male, i.e. a patriarch. When they know they are not, they are more stressed as a result.”

This Puppy

This puppy is like 
the separable soul
of folklore.
I watch him play
with spirit. He 
runs off on his
own. He returns
trembling to my
side, recollected
again:
always coming
back to his safe centre
least far from
his nearest
notion of god.
