Greetings & Salutations: That's the introduction that the military has long used to welcome prospective soldiers. Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy the works that you read. All of them come from life experiences, some good and some bad. Not to sound conceited, the poem "I Can" has had a greater impact on Amer-i-can culture than any work in modern memory. This is corroborated by the fact that in 1987 it created the term "Afr-i-can Amer-i-can", a name that is provincially applied to Blacks in the United States. Furthermore, in the first quarter of 1998, Nike Inc. made a number of commercials by the same name ,"I Can", which under-girded its multi-billion dollar quarterly earnings. I encourage you to read my poetry, especially "I Can", and cite the facts about the origin of the term "Afr-i-can Amer-i-can"! In closing, don't let the best that you have done to date be the standard for the remainder of your life. Please bookmark this page. Click on "Poetry" to your left to read my poems.
