Best Poem of Laurence Overmire

To Gov. William Bradford (Of Plymouth Plantation)

I think of you now
My 10th great grandfather
I think of you now when
I should have thought of you
Many times before.

The debt of gratitude I owe
Too great to ever be repaid
If not for you, I would not
Be here.

And yet, how many others can say
The same
This entire nation perhaps was
Held together by the seed of your
Committed strength and character.

Across the great ocean you came
And left all but a dream behind
Your wife, lost overboard
Before she ever set foot to shore.

Yet you endured, you and only a
Handful of those ...

Read the full of To Gov. William Bradford (Of Plymouth Plantation)

Bards In Arms

Poetry is the last bastion of free speech
The people's pure unfettered voice
We shall defend it at all costs
Against the numbing multitudes
The clamoring adversaries of the free word
The dull-witted patsies, posturing poseurs and
Picky pedants who would
Clamp our verse in chains
