Nope......... we never learn.
Just proves we don't need official places.
Happened in Sheffield when they closed down the playhouse..who was starting ground for a lot of stars,
too many to remember.
Then opened the crucible which is more for snooker than plays .
Thats life

Lawrenco, yes, no matter what 'directors' / bigwigs say in the end I believe we vote with our feet, our hearts... 'perfect sentiment' a phrase to ponder. Write on, Nikki


One thought (more technical) is the last line more an exclamation than a question?

Yes Alice,suits walk in and you don`t know whats going to happen;political golf ballery!
I suppose that I started the idea of the poem b4 I read article,and it seemed to fit this rather eccentric but honest,persona.She quotes "When truth and justice die the world will be dead ".-I admire that passion.
I think were becoming a people that want to be to correct; we lose our characters we lose ourselves as well...They are our inspired extended human family,without them who do we become? Namaste her favorite greeting,meaning ,"I salute the divine in you".

Thanks Miffle ,admire that positive were in control we vote with our feet,our hearts.Its true we have tremendous spirit as a people,if we need to.
I`m not really happy with the last line ,I can`t get italics etc to work on my computer, shite, probably.I think I will change it to normal with question mark.

We have never learnt from history. There is nothing in this world that makes me think we will. As for conventiality, the marauding masses remain sheep.

Good poem, succintly expressed sentiment.

I am positively excited to see my favourite word in the title. I found 'Namaste' about a year ago and instantly understood exactly what it meant for me and use it as my sign off always. I get asked all the time for a meaning and offer this:
"Namaste is an Asian greeting; from the best of oneself to the best in the other - like my soul acknowledging your soul and bypassing the messy stuff in between. It is such a beautiful and honest emotion/word.It is also a great equaliser - it speaks to the sameness in us all and not the differences." Namaste
