    Is this about the guy with no legs running a marathon … or something?

    Running is often used as a metaphor or overcoming adversity, but then again it might be referring to something in real life as well.

    Now I wanna look up Pistorius. Haven’t heard anything lately about that story.

    I just did – he was charged, given an 8 million Rand bail, and is set to appear in court again in June.

    Lovely poem, but this time, I do have a problem with the way it’s written. Not only does it not scan properly (even I can tell that the meter of the entire poem is completely ruined in the third and seventh lines), but it also destroys the ABAB CDCD rhyme scheme that was supposedly set up from the first line of the first stanza. Perhaps Wiley should go back to Poetry Writing 101 after all!

    This is a tribute to our wounded warriors! Yesterday was Military Appreciation Day.

    Wiley is a pre-historic poet. He is one of the inventors of poetry. His form is archaic and represents the fourth interglacial period.

    this makes even less sense in my local paper which left the first two panels out.

    @Jeff T

    He is a serial woman abuser (and was long before he shot his girlfriend) and a spoiled rich kid who felt entitled and abused anyone who didnt agree with him. Nike never stops suprising me in the trashy “athletes” they feature or sponsor from time to time with insensitive and offensive ads.
    Pistorius would never had made it as Olympic sprinter (with human legs) without an incredibly unfair mechanical advantage.
    There are so many holes in his defense story….hope they throw the book at him, but he’s rich, he will get off.

    It’s just free verse.

    I was the ONLY one on my block displaying a flag yesterday. Disappointing.

    Does it really matter? The meaning behind it is still there, it isn’t important whether or not it is written properly,
