“A Man with a Big Heart “
I met Dr Austin, a dentist in Salt Lake City
Who is caring all patients with no discrimination
At his high-end clinic, which is always been so busy:
It is hard to find a man like him in this nation.
His clinic is called Gateway Dental Arts, at the Gateway Mall
Which is so cozy with newest contemporary style,
Appointments are easy breezy with just one call,
His expertise is to provide patients to have a beautiful smile.
He works day in and day out tirelessly the whole year
His wonderful staffs all speak so sweet and dear
Encouraging patients young and old, not to fear
When the doctor had to use all different kinds of drill gear.
Dr Austin didn’t care about money, that’s his principle
All he just wanted is to get the result of his Dentistry, a miracle

hot smoke gushes up blue sky
mud cloaks small town fast
Spring Summer Autumn Winter Acrostic Poetry.
Seeking political office is getting hard,
Party politics needs more vigor in this regard:
Republicans must try more to deliver their views
In order to organize the people, without any excuse;
Nowadays, Democrats are getting stronger, after
Gaining control of the White House and the Senate altogether.
Some people think, and it's a true fact, that
Unless Republicans try to review their policy tact,
Many of their seats will be lost in congress,
Mainly some seats in the Senate, also some of the seats they control
Especially in the House: they will have to review and
Revise their conservative norms, regarding Immigration Reforms.
America needs a strong leader
Under the present day economic conditions
To lower the country's debt of over 14 trillions dollars:
Until and unless we try to cut down spending and
Most of us try to reduce excessive wastes,
No amount of effort will save the country from disaster.
We the people think that
In this country it was
Never the right thing,
To increase excessive spending,
Even if we could afford to spend it.
Responsibility lies in all of us to reduce the nation's debt.
( seasons that I love ) 5-7-5-7-7 Tanka poetry.
I love all seasons;
Plants and flowers bloom in spring
Birds sing in summer
Leaves tumbling down in autumn
Snow caps mountains in winter

the fish bone prick Senryu poem
I have fish bone prick
doctor said open your mouth

"American Super Bugs."
In a Big City, not long ago,
bedbugs grow like turtles, so big were their torso,
they thrived on blood, and became Super Bugs,
to men who were drunk every night, when time is right
bugs did not bite but they shun to avoid.
To all the ladies, bugs strife and bugs bite,
ever continuing their bites, night after night,
the bites that never end in sight.
The ladies were bitten everywhere,
in a rented apartment that they dwell,
causing even eyelids to blisters and swell
thank you bugs, for not entering the orifices as well.
When Terminex tried to terminate,
they found that bugs were hard to eradicate.
Bugs bite back, and bugs hide in beds
bugs thrives in sheds, and bugs keep coming back.
To a hotel, the two ladies had to flee
in a spree, bugs followed them with a glee,
Help! Help!, two of them cried for plea,
the bugs were the notorious of the species of the fleas.
Having the worst of the bites, the ladies ever had in their life,
the ladies gave-up, & flew home taking a flight.

"Three Serious Scandals"
It’s second watergate
three scandals rock the white house
“Bob The Builder Lynn” (2 years old)
At our residence in the United States
screw drivers and pliers are always at stake,
if in need, you will never find them even if you wail
as Lynn Waiyan Thein took them all away.
Around the house he would crawl and play
and he is “Bob the Builder”, he would call and say
as he is very much interested in fixing toy cars all day
playing with rings and spanners , the whole day.
If you are in need, you should better buy a new one
as Lynn is the Commander in Chief with play gun
Grand Pa, Grand Ma and all Aunts stayed fun.

from Salt Lake City
(1) In this great nation, the
United States of the America,
People who had been
residing for quite a while,
And if you have never
ever been to Salt Lake City
Should come and visit
without hesitation at least in a
To all our friends, treat
this as an Invitation, who-so-
(2) Although Summer time is
relatively gorgeous to stay
It rivaled the heat of our
Golden Land of Myanmar
Far exceeding the
temperatures all day.
Also in the open season of
Spring that we all admire
There are lots of Canyons
to go around if one desires.
(3) In times of Autumn
Season, when leaves fall
Whirling to the ground
like a chopper,
Little birds work hard to
stock supplies for winter long
According to the mundane
nature that never falter
As humans, like the
Avians, we labored year round
Our people donating a
cent, if earned a dime
To consolidate good deeds
in next life all the time
That is the real goal of
Myanmar people that all shine.
(4) Winter solstice is the
coldest of all the time
Snow caps the mountain
peaks, serenely and beautifully,
Embracing the city and its
lakes magnificently fine
The beauty and the grace
of the City that is
Sights and sceneries
embed in your memories that
This is the Salt Lake City,
our domicile that outshines.
