Mobile Phone Users: I apologize if you are having a problem reading the text of my poems on your mobile device. I use a web design mechanism which automatically shrinks or expands images, based on the screen resolution of the device that is being used. In the case of mobile phones, it shrinks the image to a size where the text is barely readable. However, if I don't use this mechanism, then the image will be full-size on your phone, and you will have to scroll a little to the right in order to read the full poem. So either you scroll right, or else use your fingers to enlarge the image. However, if you use an iPad, other tablet or desktop computer, the images will look sharp and clear, and will automatically be displayed at their full size of 500x400 pixels, 696x560 pixels, or larger.

If you are wondering about the reference to a pole in this poem, some of you will be familiar with the old game/dance called "limbo". This game employed the use of a pole or bar called the limbo stick. The goal was to slip under the stick without falling down or touching the pole. As the game or dance advanced with each participant, the stick was lowered more and more towards the ground, so that the person had to lower himself and bend backwards more and more, as he scooted forward, so as to not touch the stick.

In the world's fame game, many people do the very same thing. In other words, to achieve more and more success,they must be willing to lower and abase themselves more and more. They are forced to abandon their personal morals, and all sense of decency, in order to be rewarded with money and fame.

We see this so often with popular music artists, unHolywood celebs, etc. Young women learn quick that if they want to make it big in the movies, they must be willing to sell their souls, and become little whores who bare their flesh for the big movie moguls. Sad, isn't it?

Sadder still is the fact that once such women reach the age of 30 or 40, unHolywood considers them has-beens, because they no longer have any sex appeal for the younger crowd, who form the upcoming money market. It is such a superficial world.
