BITS AND BYTES 1
Time goes by in the blink of an eye. We die without asking why. Life's over before we know it. Little's left behind to show it. A short stay at a mortuary, A brief obituary. A stone above a patch of earth. Is that all that life is worth?

Armageddon's gonna get 'em if we let 'em. War ain't glory. It's gory. Awe and wonder. Bombs and blunder. Six feet under. End of story.
After nearly 50 years as a newspaper reporter and editor I retired from daily journalism and became the editor of a Florida magazine for several years until it
went bust. Now I have returned full-time to my first love, poetry, and have developed a unique new style of verse which I call "Rhyme on Rhyme on Rhyme."
I have written nearly 1,000 verses on a wide range of topics and average about five new pieces a week.
