Who Knew?

"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art

Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?


When is it all going to end?


Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

You See!

The Human Beast

Down through the eons of time,
humanity has tried to make life sublime.
But in all its learning and wisdom, has
failed to make life rhyme.

For centuries, with sticks and
stones they continually broke
each other’s bones.

Today, they continue with
bullets, bombs and rockets
far beyond.

They've searched and searched
for that elusive peace,
but as you and I well know...
it’s not in the nature of the human beast.
Jackie R. Kays
