Better Than Gold

Introducing our own Dr Ram
Though he be not from Thailand Siam
Creation made him then broke the mold
Dr Ram’s words are better than gold

The man Ram’s contests quite a  pleasure
Poems provides own little treasure 
Gent of class from India I’m told
Dr Ram’s words are better than gold

Willingly a heart ask how and when
Listen to his advice then you win
Never has he caused one heart to fold
Dr Ram’s words are better than gold

He’s contented with his earthy lot
Settled back in his favorite spot
Affluent in talent and he’s bold 
Dr Ram’s words are better than gold

He says all my dues have all been paid
At peace I’ll watch my own sunset fade 
Seventy plus, why break a good mold
Dr Ram’s words are better than gold

For Joe Maverick and Contest: Better Than Gold

    Yes, John, you are right. all my dues all been paid, but this last due to all of you who wrote feelingly on me remains unpaid. Wish God gives me strength to stand to what all of you have said about me. Thanks John. I am very sorry for a little bit misunderstanding on my part on your earlier version. I regret it much.

    Moses, moses, moses, you out did yourself on this one, thank you for your kind comments on my blog where have you been son? haven't heard from you in a while, I see you are still doing what you do best that is posting your excellent poetry, Remember without the Holy Spirit to aid in my writing I could not do it, I'm recovering from TB and at tip top shape again, just a bump in the road. Will look in to your poetry later in the eve, God bless my friend.
