My Legacy

     Just in case you were wondering (which I seriously doubt) yes, I am still writing. Here is a poem with a bit of tongue-in-cheek humility. The humor in it is intended although perhaps not readily recognizable by the reader.

     Have a happy “Hump Day” everyone,


And This I leave Unto You

And This I leave Unto You

My Legacy

I am an unknown to most of the world

and my existence, but a second in time,

yet still, I have worth

to bestow on this earth

and a legacy that I’ll leave behind.

I have made people smile as I came and I went

and I’ve caused no intentional harm,

yes, I took everyday

in the very same way

with aplomb and an abundance, of charm.
