Flying reptile


Dreaded,
Red-eyed glare
And fiery breath
Guaranteed an
Ominous challenge and
Near or certain death.

Beware the...


When a statement begins, “It is
Obvious…,”
One might encounter this effect, but
Zealous fact-finding efforts will
Lead from the
Experiential to the correct.

The woman who inspired the poster “We Can Do It!” was Naomi Parker, but for many years, Geraldine Doyle was credited as being the model. At that time lack of evidence, assertions, and assumptions led to endorsements and commonly held belief. In this era of people in power calling all reports contrary to his agenda “fake news,” we must be ever vigilant.

The Petite Seat


Frequent ultrashort laser pulses
Efficiently
Machined 
The tiniest chair;
One fs is to a
Second what
Exactly one second is to about –
Can you believe it? – thirty-
One million years!!! Its
Name came from ‘15’ in
Danish. For this very good cause we cheer!

The cause is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Rochester, MN. Here is the link:

Thank you, Rose A., for ‘needling’ me to compose this acrostic. J

Magnificent skiers landed with

Reckoning; today marks
Exactly when we reached this many
Days of school and
That’s
How learning totally rules!

A people in...


Cries from both sides
Rise to a pitch
In which anguish flips a
Switch.
Instantly lives are gone. Insanely, the
Second Amendment lives on.

The question arises every time. Nothing ever changes, except for the number of untimely, unreasonable deaths.

Sharing a room


Conviviality and
Affinity
Make
A
Respectable pair,
Allowing for lots of people to
Declare that they
Evidently
Readily share similar
Ideas, and for
Each other care.
