Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Wednesday Poetry Blogging

Genuinely horrible late at night edition.

Here is a bit of doggerel I dashed off in response to the picture and quite nice poem that can be found here.


Once I was a cheerful bloke,
Easy with a quip or joke.
Everything was going grand
Until I came here to the sand.
Now I sit beside the beach,
With sun and waves in easy reach,
Sad because I can't harass
The kids back playing on my grass.
