Hoary head, sullen glower,
Furrowed brow, mood so dour!
An imposter's pose
For oils and prose.

Elgol, where, swathed in
Mists and mystery,
The Cuillins reach the sea.
"Who goes there?
I'll take a gander."
Don't raise your dander.
You're just a gosling,
Perspectives on Life
Bowie knife and blade,
"Respect" is their meaningless byword. But true respect for relatives, friends and neighbours has been lost. Concern, love, for our fellow men and women all too often falls foul of callousness and hatred. Why? Because we've forgotten the meaning of true love and substituted human rights in its place.
"Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud, or rude. Love isn't selfish or quick tempered. It doesn't keep a record of wrongs that others do. Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil. Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting. Love never fails!"
