Off the beaten track

A plethora of attention focused on twentieth anniversary regarding terrorist attacks upon American soil nine eleven two thousand and one, thus Schwenksville poet opted for his best métier write. While riding atop a yak both feet went wickety wack trudging beast of burden a throwback to the brainchild of John Mauchly and J.

As an aging long haired pencil neck geek baby boomer who reckons himself as schleppy (snoop doggy dog) self groomer cannot escape scornful passersby sneering, snickering and snorting at me, an utter embarrassment to humanity, who also sports sophomoric humor.
