slipped through my fingers, forever lost in the soil!
A young entrepreneur’s euphoria evaporated into...Read More

Goodbye Mister Chip
The team's fans had lofty expectations.
They were squelched by your miscalculations.
The trades you made provided no improvement.
The team's performance was a bitter disappointment.
Your boys lost some games to mediocre teams.
That caused inability to fulfill some dreams.
A smooth road to travel...Read More

Such a deeply human affliction
When all hope is done
It’s a tear in one’s heart

Always we’d  break up. We’d get back together,
passion-thirsting in hot summer’s weather.

We’d get back together; always we’d break up.

Not long would it last, and around the fall,
you would disappear. Then would come...Read More

Ever Wondered About Death
Death is something we all fear

surrounded by bitter disappointment
seemed to be a permanent appointment,
