    I was sitting up at some ridiculous time in the morning when I came across your notes on a piece of paper for this. You had told me earlier in the day you had written a new senryu, but I didn't pay enough attention. I was blown away by this and I can genuinely say this is one of the best senryus I have read on this site or anywhere else. Well done, Keira. This is deservedly nominated and deserves to be highlighted next week.

    Wow, I must say I'm glad this is nominated because if it wasn't it surely would have been by me.
    What a poem, that packs the perfect punch!
    Well done,

    Yes, Gladiolus - also known as sword lilies, can pack a punch...just as your Senryu!

    Wow, Keira. Your poem shows how much power words can wield . The pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword.

    Good luck with this gem!

    sorry, i couldn't help myself. I know this changes the 'defence' of armour into a lure for attack, much like a trojan horse. Anyway, i like your poem, it gave me pause for thought.
