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.

Flights Of Fancy

I'd love to write a poem about the air,
About the thrills and freedom that I found
Those many thousand feet above the ground
Away from Earth and all my problems there.

But how can I do justice to a thought
St. Exupery, and John McGee and those
Like Gann and Yeats, in poetry and prose
Pursued as well, and well and truly caught?
