Mike Fitzgibbons And His Morning Paper

For 35 years, Mike Fitzgibbons had never missed a day driving off at 4 a.m. to buy the newspaper at his local convenience store. Snow, sleet, hail or rain couldn't stop him. There was only one paper being published in St. Louis at the time but Mike was addicted to newspapers. He had spent his early years reading four papers a day in Chicago- two in the morning and two in the evening. He worked for one of them and enjoyed every minute of it. However, an opportunity to earn more money as an editor for a defense contractor required his large family's relocation to St. Louis. Mike needed more money to feed a wife and seven children.
'Words are words, ' Mike said at the time. 'Being paid more money to arrange words for someone else seems like the right thing to do.'
Donal Mahoney

'Me' The Poet

A poets first words whether; a cry of anguish, or a scream of anger, the gentle pulse of a love stricken heart, or eerie silence of a heart left in tatters; remain an angels last thought, Godly or Evils seductive whispers
A poets first thoughts whether; of pain or regretful sorrow, joy or excitable confusion; remain unique, creative and unchallenged. Flaunting the spectacular difference that exists within the rarest of persons
