Russian criminals with presidential pardons return home from war. Incidents of violent crime skyrocket.
The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break anywhere in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

So truthful. It happens after every conflict in the world.. Even in my country, when “volunteers” returned from middle east conflict zones, gangs seemed a little more emboldened, and violent crime rates spike.

Exactly. You reap what you sow. This poem is crisp and to the point – I wish I could condense to the essence the message as you do! ❤
