#Egypt #Jan25 MUSINGS from the GREEN NOTEBOOK : Excerpt 1 - Poem 4 #Egypt

The Dancing Bear sat upon a hill
telling all who chanced to listen
of his personal conquest thrill,

The rusted hinges
on the door of the fortress
that is his heart, cannot be moved.

Ancient Kings no longer rest
their spirits having been summoned
souls floating upon the River Time.

Thousands pushing forward,
millions waiting to follow
no one can explain the crowd.

What does he hold in his hand
that I cannot in mine?
His reign is sinking in the sand.

The Tablets of Law lie open,
the trial being unfurled and
life will review soon if not already.

In case you missed the nightly news,
you're only young awhile and when you
realize you're old -
too late to change your style.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
