Monday Kipple

Most people don’t think of Kipling as a religious poet, but this is a religious poem: late in his life. The execution is that of St Paul. At His Execution I am made all things to all men– Hebrew, Roman, and Greek– In each one’s tongue I speak, Suiting to each my word, That some […]

While the Brexit mess is ongoing, there are people in NZ who have the police arrive at their doorstep because of their social media postings.
