:) My Friend Fear


My friend fear has been with me all my days
No doubt thanks to Dad beating me at four
This brutal incident taught me even in early flight
To check my six to see what may be gaining on me
Spared me Viet Nam just to begin the catalog
That pre-dates a certain wrestling mat.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
