Comments about Jim Yerman
I recently ran across a list Deborah and I created long ago
It contained the dreams for our perfect house...our ideal bungalow.
We called it our North Carolina Love Nest and it was to be our creed
For we thought, on this paper, we listed everything we'd need.
Everything to keep us contented, our personal honeycomb
Everything our minds could think of...to make a happy home.
We were young and innocent back then...and our dreams...unlimited and grand
But despite our best intentions...life didn't go the way we planned.
You see we never built our dream ...
He stood in the line to be processed…one old man with hair of gray
They were deciding who would've to leave our country
and deciding who could stay.
You have to answer a few questions first…the man behind the counter said
The old man looked the questioner in the eye
smiled then nodded his head.
They make us ask the easy questions first…So…for what it's worth.
