Prevails

police patrol
Marshal Law Here?

Police

Meant to protect and defend

Police

On them we can depend

Police

Trained to restrain

Police

Now they hardly refrain

Police

Have some of us on lockdown

Police

Bring to many a worried frown

Police

We are not under marshal law!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I would disagree about it not being illegal for being a person of color. haven’t you heard of being arrested for driving while black (or brown, or red, or yellow). as for martial law, it depends on what neighborhood you are fortunate or unfortunate to live in. My $.02.
