Walter Cronkite and why he was so right
Walter was so right,
In his fight for right, 
While not too far to the right.

Walter was a shining light,
A guiding light,
All his weight behind the light.

His quotes right on the money,
But not for the sake of the money,
His eyes on...Read More

What human isn’t flawed?
Who’s integrity isn’t cheap?

The never forgotten promises we didn’t keep!

Seesaws in the City
In the 30’s, right on Broadway,
For a temporary stay,
Are a dozen lit-up seesaws
Meant for passers-by to play.

Once a staple of each playground,
Now a seesaw is so rare 
Many people never saw one
‘Til they spied them waiting there.

But they just can’t...Read More

Until he sees

One thing that I really do hate
Is when people are constantly late
For it isn’t a crime
To arrive right on time - 
Even early, so no one must wait.

Yet some folks have a glitch in their genes;
Thus, they’re tardy in all...Read More

David King of Israel
When Saul became disobedient.
His reign of king became expedient.
He refused to slay king Agag, the Amalekite who was old.
Not only that, he took their best sheep and cattle, their silver, and their gold.
Saul’s disobedience caused God’s heart to break.
Ole king...Read More
