Okay I just realised...

...how seriously wrong my last poem sounded when people may mistake the name of my friend's late pup Villy as, well, Willy. What was meant and expressed as a sad poem took on a whole laughable yet sinister quality and became a tasteless knob joke, which is sickening when I wrote it in order to commemorate the life of a hapless little puppy.

(So yes I've taken down the poem, just when I thought I had cleaned it up about right. Sigh... What price an innocent mind?).

(Actually, after further deliberations and minor amendments, the relevant post is reinstated on Wednesday, 2nd June, 2010).

You changed the name to protect the innocence.

I don't think the wrong name took away anything from your poem.

Thanks LCL. After considering your kind comment, and re-reading the poem again, perhaps I should just leave it up after all (in any case, it's not as if I haven't now acknowledged myself that there is that other nasty possible reading of the same poem, and I have changed the key word so that it's at least less risible now). Thanks.
