About the Author
Default Group
Location:Texas, USA Naturalized US Citizen of Irish extract -   Fixed Wing and Helo trucker.Interests: "The Absurdity of Man". I am a proud supporter of Blarney, Nonsense, and Hooey. I enjoy being a chopper jockey, and trying to figure the world, people and belief systems out. I'm just not very good at it, so it keeps me real busy. I scribble, blog, run this website, mess with rental houses, ride motorbikes, and read as much as I can. I went solo 44 years ago, and I like to say I'm gonna get me a real job one day. When I grow up. ("but not just yet, Lord, not just yet") For my aviation scribbles see enjoy! I wish you Peace in your Life. May you always walk with the sun on your face, and a breeze ruffling your hair. And may you cherish a quiet wonder for our awesome Universe. Life isn't always good. But it is always fascinating. Never quit.

Daily Commute

Daily Commute

A cruel cacophony of Life
A whirling dervish grinning strife
A hostile wall of smoking tires
And high compression vapor fires
Combustion engines on a roll
Uncaring of the human toll.

The honking horns and dazzling lights
The angry claims to challenged rights
Blood pressure boiling through the roof
Unable to remain aloof
Velocity comes screaming in
While pistons blur and camshafts spin.

I think I'll take my donkey Dick
And hang a carrot on a stick
And slowly as a stubborn mule
                                       exterminate each traffic rule.

We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.
