A Man with a big heart

               “A Man with a Big Heart “                             

I met Dr Austin, a dentist in Salt Lake City
Who is caring all patients with no discrimination  
At his high-end clinic, which is always been so busy:
It is hard to find a man like him in this nation.

His clinic is called Gateway Dental Arts, at the Gateway Mall
Which is so cozy with newest contemporary style,
Appointments are easy breezy with just one call,
His expertise is to provide patients to have a beautiful smile.

He works day in and day out tirelessly the whole year
His wonderful staffs all speak so sweet and dear
Encouraging patients young and old, not to fear 
When the doctor had to use all different kinds of drill gear.

Dr Austin didn’t care about money, that’s his principle
All he just wanted is to get the result of his Dentistry, a miracle

Bob The Builder Lynn

	“Bob The Builder Lynn”  (2 years old)

At our residence in the United States
screw drivers and pliers are always at stake,
if in need, you will never find them even if you wail
as Lynn Waiyan Thein took them all away.
Around the house he would crawl and play
and he is “Bob the Builder”, he would call and say
as he is very much interested in fixing toy cars all day
playing with rings and spanners , the whole day. 
If you are in need, you should better buy a new one
as Lynn is the Commander in Chief with play gun 
Grand Pa, Grand Ma and all Aunts stayed fun.

By Dr Ko Ko Thein (U.S.A.)
Salt Lake City.
Dedicated to my 2 years old grandson Lynn W. Thein.

Spring, Summer, Autumn Winter

Spring Summer Autumn Winter              Acrostic Poetry.

Seeking political office is getting hard,
Party politics needs more vigor in this regard:
Republicans must try more to deliver their views
In order to organize the people, without any excuse;
Nowadays, Democrats are getting stronger, after
Gaining control of the White House and the Senate altogether.

Some people think, and it's a true fact, that
Unless Republicans try to review their policy tact,
Many of their seats will be lost in congress,
Mainly some seats in the Senate, also some of the seats they control
Especially in the House: they will have to review and
Revise their conservative norms, regarding Immigration Reforms.

America needs a strong leader
Under the present day economic conditions
To lower the country's debt of over 14 trillions dollars:
Until and unless we try to cut down spending and
Most of us try to reduce excessive wastes,
No amount of effort will save the country from disaster.

We the people think that
In this country it was
Never the right thing,
To increase excessive spending,
Even if we could afford to spend it.
Responsibility lies in all of us to reduce the nation's debt.

Life of a Forensic Pathologist

Life of a Forensic Pathologist”      
(Free verse in free style)	

Eleven years of high school, he had to try
Seven years of college, he almost cry
Becoming an intern, his professor a real oppressor
What can he do, he chose to be a doctor.

Forensic Pathologist is his specialty
Dissecting dead bodies is his eventuality
Finding the cause of death, natural or criminal
Is it heart attack or a stab wound so typical

Going to court, giving expert opinion
Had to be unbias, statements given with reason
He is a legal witness, to save the innocent
But to a guilty criminal, he had to be insolent.

His daily life is in the mortuary and not so easy
Once he is in, it is a lifetime job, not so briefly
It is a difficult career and do not expect to be rich
This is what he is, the life of a Forensic Pathologist.
