8

A Poem by Treo LeGigeo
"

There once was a little number eight...

"
There once was a little number eight,
Which took on itself to negate,
Freedom, right,
Before they finally saw the light,
It gets better now, state by state.

Yes, this is about Proposition 8.

The last line is a reference to It Gets Better.

For a limerick contest.

Interesting.
Another thing about this number....
Flip it on it's side and you have infinity.
Play with it!

At first impression, the picture, i was drawn in. Proud of you to choose such a strong political subject. And also inspired. :) good luck.

As much as i dont understand this but i think that's down to my own lack of knowledge rather than your way of depicting it because i sense a powerful message underlining it.
I loved it none the less its sweet, its got a brilliant flow and leaves you with a warm feeling inside.
