I, for one, can't wait for the reggae artist who does a cover of Master Song

Dear Andrew M, Candice, Lizzy, halfcrazy Thank you all but as you have all intimated it is too late. Now I just hope that Iraq doesn't turn into another Palestine with suicide bombers exacting revenge against the coalition, the coalition then clamping down on Iraq and further reprisals from the iraq...

Hell Bent on Peace

Please forgive me, this is not a poem. There are several people who are unhappy with the divisions caused by the Hell Bent on War thread. It may have cost us David (I hope not) and possibly others? From reading the posts Paula is not happy with the internal fighting, nor is Tori, nor Jo and Kush (so...

Byron What can I say, forgive me. Please post your poem again (possibly in a new thread?) with it's correct title - this has now become a diatribe against celebrities - a diatribe that I accept that I began. Let your poem attract attention as poetry not as my rant against celebrities posing as conce...

Paula

The startling fact that you are a Manc :shock: causes me to wonder why I; a person who spent 4 years living in Liverpool and supporting the only Reds; have managed to get on with you on this forum.

Is uppose it only shows the healing power of LC.

Having just posted on The worst ever covers thread I realise that there may some common thread running through my though my brain on this poem. I will admit that I have been distracted by the title - in fact it may be that this has taken over my thought processes, albeit subconsciously. Let me expla...

If being Anti War makes me part of a clique then so be it, I am anti war and anti-terrorism (Maybe pro-peace is a better phrase?) I have communicated, however, via these boards with members who have similar opinions to mine on this matter and with members who's opinions differ. Paula (from London), ...

I'm sorry that I concentrated on the title - What have I unleashed? John Lennon was my first love (musically at least) but, to my mind at least, he only discovered the peace movement at the time he discovered Yoko, and I believe that she was a massive (positive) influence on him, eventually. The poi...

Jo To some extent I empathise with you - I no longer post on some threads as I know that the result will be vitriol. I know only read these threads and instead of replying just speak to myself. However I do know where Partisan is coming from - The feeling that goes into these threads is what makes t...

An interesting choice of reason for a nom-de-plume (sp?) you choose two opposites (ie Monn & Light) which I also find evocative of LC (Love & Hate)
