  1. Apparently should be all in present tense – suggest a re-write. On human nature – fair enough. Similar experience recently with blackened prawns – only the word was not the Italian “nero” – rather the Japanese word for the same: “kuro”! Recall fright some years ago after eating baked baby beetroot – as you might imagine!


  2. Thanks Jim. I thought you’d be able to answer the question. If I was to do a rewrite it would be of the title – change to ‘This is not a senryu’. I do know what you mean about teh baby beetroot.


What do you think?
