The First Thanksgiving (Sept. 3, 1578)

Was reserved for England.

THE MALE MENOPAUSE - please feel free to join in the collaboration

He refused a quick roll in the hay

The Three Little Pigs - A New Story

Innocent of the Racket
I was strolling to the entrance of the Barley Tavern,

Navigating on the cold white sands formed of sugar and ice ...
Remembering Atari - Part 1
roger, career, journey, life,
(Unsigned, Sealed, and Delivered)

Always thinking, "It's too good to last,"

Though momentum would carry us past.
Nolan's (2) vision was not...
Mutiny Against Stupidity
The world is like a sea
The countries are mobile ships
When a great plague washes over
Not from scruby, but from corona.
The colonial ships take extreme measures
To keep their colonies safe and secure
By staying indoors to keep...
NOSTALGIA, THOSE WERE THE DAYS

We all think that when we were young
The sun shone for 23 hours a day

But things always look better looking back

The Ever Rising Science Star
roger, 10th grade, 11th grade, 12th grade, identity,
The brightest star so renowned,
Modern Cosmology well-governed!
The Universe was examined and Black Holes too
Brought General Relativity and Quantum Gravity intact!
Was he the one who diagnosed with dreadful ALS,
Transformed black holes from inexorable gravitational prisons?
DESPERATELY WONDERFULLY ILL
roger, appreciation, books, love, passion, poetry,
Was never sure whether or not to laugh, smile or cry when

plus purple cardigan - seven buttons tidy, top one below chin,
and a black beret perched precariously...

Its carnival season again in Trinidad
The whole country in a party mood
With steel pan, soca and calypso

roger, death, football, obituary,

I saw the body of Roger Byrne, lay across him on the ground
Jackies arm was bleeding bad, so a tourniquet I tied
HOW COULD I FORGET
roger, appreciation, christian, dad, death, friendship, goodbye, memory,

How could I forget your widely smiling face,
Your warm enwrapping hugs, your frequent gifts of grace,
Before your brilliant mind, which used to dazzle bright,
Gave way to Alzheimer’s dark unrelenting blight.
Vacation Day 1
roger, death, depression, family, father, loss, war, son,
I sat in a meditative state
Released everything inside
Hollowed out my being
For a single parent whose son had died
I drove a thoughtless road
Until my destination was in view
Roger was crying in the shop
I didn't know what...
O Witless Quill
roger, dark, imagery, journey, light, mystery, psychological, word
"O Witless Quill"
O witless quill
sharply dipped in smiles leering
joust they your words
on their egos competing
galloping black stallions, see them fall
shiny armour felled knights
and petulant proud Queens now all shiny amour, in their saddles riding
Baseball By The Numbers
Some numbers tumble down the hallowed halls of baseball’s past -
