One Good Turn Deserves Another
O-ne good turn deserves another, 
N-either hand will do bad; 
I-ntelligent deed truly makes 
N-ot your heart and soul sad.

A-fter braving the storm of mess.

I see broken people

And I feel their pain

And I do what I can to help,
I don’t expect nothing in return

Poem Zero
maybe the ones who have left

us early by the malice of their own

hand knew what matters most:

procreation; the evolution of

planetary life amply illuminated, steeled

to survive in our natal fount or

And the memories we make along the way
That makes our lives worth living

Death
Death,

We are fellow travelers on this earth,
We are only here for this brief moment,
Once the body decays, nothing remains, 
But an empty shell.
We come empty handed,
Depart empty handed.

Did I not help you?
Was I not there when you fell?
I’m crying alone….

My secrets are mine
Do I question you of yours?
The heart is silent….

Please handle with care….

'Keep a stiff upper lip' is another cliché

It was called The Grand King Bufffet

The place was packed
America's finest this place did...Read More
