a girl called Ben

This is good - and horribly relevant while we are all blind to what is actually going on in the Middle East, and also while all eyes are turned away from Africa to watch.

Thanks for posting it.

Mort - a middle aged Girl Interrupted

Initially when i saw the title, i thought it was about the parasite that causes blindness.

Having read it, i am only too aware that i am guilty of it too. However much i wish i didnt, it is easier to look away than face these things.

Thankyou for reminding me to look.

Not sure the two halves add up to a whole - and the poem is a bit repetitive for me. Or maybe that's the point?

In light of the recent tragedy, I cannot turn a blind eye on this, as it may have some impact. It certainly has relevance.
