Barbary Lions

Here's the draft poem about Barbary lions - very much a first draft, and one that needs completely taking down and rebuilding. It's a start.

I liked this, Tony: very atmospheric yet to the point, and I think it walks the line between the beauty and decadent fraility of the scene. It got me thinking, anyhow, although I had to look up 'praetorian' in my ignorance of ancient history!

Which reminds me, did you get the comments on your TLS poem(s) I emailed back some months ago?

Hi Ben, thanks for reading and your kind comments. This poem is so frustrating - I keep having a clear idea of how it should be, but can't execute the idea at all.

I've realised with horror that I never thanked you for the comments on the TLS poem - so: thanks! And while I'm about it, thanks also for your praise of my PL poems on the Poets on Fire Forum.
