      Most of my poetry is short. Can't guarantee succinct! Glad you get me. And I think, welcome to my hubs. At least, I don't think you've commented before, have you?

      I love this one. It is short and succinct. The comment above about a manual for fixing women is super. Thanks for sharing here. Your simplicity is appreciated.

      Kathleen,

      Simple and sound from your own pen.

      19 words!- and you have expressed a strong opinion.

      Drawing one to plead guilty.

      We got a good honest mini group here.

      Interesting point. I'll have to show my husband this comment. I'm sure he'll identify with it! :)

      Men like manuals for fixing things, it must be a terrible disappointment that women need a new edition every week.
