You know, all these short writes leave a reader so... whats the word I am looking for... Intrigued?
Yes, i think so. Just that the reader would have such broad thoughts as to what lead to him being strung highly.
Wonderful play on words. Very nice

You're welcome--short review for a short poem. :)
Not sure if her "high strungedness" somehow caused him to be "strung highly."
Whatever the case, he certainly got the worse deal.
Smart word play!

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Suhd. I appreciate the comment.
Not only strung but stung. Nothing quite like the sting of being stabbed in the back huh. Compact little one this and as always, en pointe. Vive la revolution.

Done? Oops. Thought they were in progress still. The revolution's spies were misinformed it seems.
Your poetic domain never ceases to amaze me, whether it be a scientific ballad, or a tightly wound Senryu... (A form I favor HIGHLY over Haiku)... So much said within such little... Once unraveled... It is an entire world of thought...
