"Yosef has forgotten his past in concentration camp, concentrates in giving people what they need, quick and big profits, in his job as financial analyst in stock-market, and occasionally, behind his back, he is called neoliberal Nazi by his customers, who have been disapointed."

One line (stanza) sequel to Arnt Sneve, photographer.

This planet full of angry sadness,
mere tear, cry for help and moan -
has beauty - all reflections,
which ban us - life of lone.

1 line sequel from Antonios Maltezos "Garbage"

That night around the fire, their mother jiggled her sneakered foot and toed the dirt with her bare other, while singing, a pleasant song they all enjoyed, one she reserved only for the best dinners.
