I HONOR A FRIENDS BIRTHDAY

A GOOD FRIEND DIED THIS WEEK

SADLY

RACE, COLOR AND RELIGION

MOM'S DAY AND GRADUATION



AS WE GROW OLDER

COST OF FALLING IN LOVE PART 2

PROTESTS IN SPANISH

FALLING IN LOVE SO EXPENSIVE

NO NEED TO FEAR THE DEVIL

55 YEARS OF WEDDED BLISS

TIME TO BUILD THE ARK

SHARING WINE WITH THE DEVIL

ONE BY ONE THEY LEAVE THE NEST

BABY IT IS MISERABLE OUT

POETICALLY SPEAKING

IN REMEMBRANCE OF MOM: FERN ERMA BISYAK

AND THE WINNER IS---?

MESSAGE TO GAIL AND KATHY

PET PEAVES

LOVE IS THE ANSWER

GROWING OLD LETTING THINGS OUT

iT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A POEM READ

WOMB OF THE SAME MOTHER: POEMS

THINGS PASSING BY

I TOO THOUGHT I COULD FLY

I AM BUILDING AN ARK

I GREW UP LOVING JESUS AND BASEBALL

SMOKING AND DOPING

I GREW UP ON MUSIC AND LEO LASSEN

TOMMY WHO?

MY SPECIAL GIFT

More Poetry >>

Being Irish all my life
I was given a DNA test
I am what I am or so I thought
I  don't bow to the king and queen
Though I have been to Canada
Have no interest in going to England
I have teased the wife about being English
So she put the results on my desk
Circled in my green blood probably relish
And on St Patrick day
She has no morals and bows to the queen
Circled, Ethnicity Estimate
I am 43 percent Great Britain
27 percent Ireland
30 percent other regions
Mom's maiden name was Soash
I assumed the was native Indian
It had to be Grandma she spent time In Canada
Owned a Scottish Terrier and drank weak tea
No more blood tests for me
I drink Jim Beam or Jamison Irish whiskey on the rocks
Tea time is with a driver and hitting golf balls
I  became a poet when i realized there was nothing else I could do
That how you became a poet too?
