Hope you enjoy this...
Und nun, liebe kinder, gebt fein acht:
Die wahrheit wird zu sand gemacht!
...Den streut man jenen in die Augen
die niemals fragen- alles glauben...
Die volle wahrheit zu ertragen
steht jenen an die Fragen fragen-
Nur dem der sie zu stellen wagt:
Und Gott hilf dem der Fragen fragt!
(My children- come and see this land
were truth has long since turned to sand
which wind will blow into the eyes
of those who never question lies...
The truth to bear is for those men
who dare to question- and who then
make asking their most pressing task:
And God help those who dare to ask...)

(I take it the Greek phrase worked...all i get is funny letters from my end!)
Yeah it worked for me. You (and other "barbarians" (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) ) have to switch the encoding to Greek in order to see Greek characters. (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
So all poems you posted under WJB are yours Joe?
I really like this one:
"As i am a young man, i can feel the pride
in a place were people have nothing to hide;
Were honesty reigns and were truth is just that-
instead of a rabbit pulled out of a hat...
And as i get older, i still feel that pride-
though people have started to twist and to hide
the truth, and the rest.- I don't want to know;
I just want to watch the 'nostalgia-show'...
But then i get old, and there's none of it left-
the truth long since has been the subject of theft.
And while i am thinking of good ol' days gone,
my children just stare. And they say: "Dad- well done...!"
