    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    Enjoyed both poems very much.

    YesNo - Enjoyed the poetics of your piece: A worthy quatrain (4X10) with an AABA rhyme scheme utilizing enjambment.

    Pendragon - A poem perhaps depicting the Kipling era; eliciting the 2nd Boer War (googled) and the consequence of stirring up ill will with the natives, luckily a safe distance away. Kipling might have gone with a rhyming scheme (as in "Fuzzy-Wuzzy" http://www.bartleby.com/246/1128.html ), but your short form gives just enough to satisfy without rhyme.

    Tough call... going with Pendragon on this one. Congratulations to both !
