BIO Of A Simple Man Called Me

BIO Of A Simple Man Called Me Coming from a normal family Perhaps not by today’s standards I had two loving parents who stayed together They lived and died together, that was their choice And molded me to be a humble man of virtue Most friends and family call me “gullible” I believe anything you tell me… but only once My parents named me Earl and wished me luck Short stories, plays, novels, and sometimes poetry, is my way of life I have nothing published but I still like to write No one will pay me for reading books, so I played the game Giving people subpoenas, travel documents, all in the same day A travel manager by day, a constable’s officer by night I’ve led an interesting, sometimes dangerous life I’ve even had a wife or two and a couple of children along the way I love chess and Zelda video games and played for hours The Beatles are the best of the very best for music pleasure Kafka, Samuel Beckett and Hesse are still such fun to read People still call me gullible and lame But I’m still standing, still playing in the game Created on 10/09/14 for BIO Poems -Poetry Contest

Good morning Eve, Thank you so much. You have already said some kind words about my works. I have commented on your works also. It has been some time. It is hard for me to keep up with the Poetry Soup community with my schedule. I changed my avatar also at Soup. It is always nice to hear from you. Have a great day. Thanks again. Take care. Earl

Hi Anne Lise, Thank you. It is all true. I did not want to do this contest but I had some structure ideas so I ran with it. You should have gotten 1st. place. Your bio was the most original and creative. You did a great job. Keep up the good work. Have a great day. Earl

Hi Brenda, Thank you so much. It is all true. I have had and continue to have a lot of adventures, dangers and drama in my life. I prefer a simple life but it was not to be. Thanks again. Congratulations on your #1 win in the contest. Take care. Earl

I like that nonchalant, I've had a wife or two. This was very interesting to learn more about you,Earl. My hubbie was a bounty hunter one year. Oh, the tales I heard about THAT. You have varied interests and that makes for the spice of life!

Good morning Andrea, Thank you so much for your interest and comments. I was more inclined to not do this write but I had a few ideas to fashion and form a structure so I ran with the muse. This is all true by the way. I only wanted a simple life...but that was not to be. Thanks again. Have a pleasant day. Take care. Earl

Hi Jan, Thank you so much. I'm glad you liked it. Honestly, I do not like to do this kind of write but I had a few ideas about structure so I took a jab at it. I'm happy with the way it turned out. Actually, all of it is true. Thanks again. Take care. Earl
