Mac is an electrical engineer with the Tennessee Valley Authority who writes poetry as a sideline. Although he has written poems and short stories since his college days, his outputincreased sharply beginning in 1990 when God seemed to be giving him specific glimpses of life and concepts and characters in the Bible. His first book, God Let Me See the Hedge, was published by lulu.com in September 2004. Other specific poems have been published on various Internet sites including christianpoetry.com where his poems were twice selected by John Evans as the focus for his monthly editorial. Mac is planning to publish a second book to be titled My Dad Never Took Shortcuts in late 2005. The new poems published at poemhunter.com are to be included in the new book.

Rags To Riches

“Show him our finest, ” the shop owner said
“This customer’s richer by far
“Than anyone else that you’ve seen in our store
“Don’t stare; no don’t glance at his scar.”

“But, sir, that young man in those filthy old rags
“Must stink, sir, we must turn him out.
“He looks like he walked in right off of the street
“I’m sure that he’s homeless. No doubt.”
