Biography of William Webb

One of the rare ones: a genuine Florida Cracker! Sebring High School, University of Kentucky, and College of Life.

Been a lifeguard, commercial pilot, cop, executive chauffeur, addiction counselor, and was for many years a drunk myself. Love Florida, and just about every thing in it, if you don't count the immigrant Northerners who have spoiled it so badly.

Been writing one thing and another for most of my life, mostly technical writing for various journals. Now doing it for fun.

Revenge

It must have seemed good sense to drain the swamps,
The marshes, sloughs, and other secret places.
For surely they appeared to be land wasted
On snakes, sawgrass, and other useless things.

They would have missed the wonders hidden there,
The rich detritus feeding tiny creatures
Who became meals themselves to feed the larger
Creatures who were surely of no value.
