If I shoot in a group and just one
of the flock falls to earth then my gun
needs a much better choke;
I don’t want to go broke
‘cause I can’t go duck hunting for fun.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Kindness is a seed sown by the gentlest hand, growing care's flowers.

I have always ducked hunting for fun
I could have doing things without guns.
I can spend the weekends
playing football with friends
while some other guys stay with their hons.

Some guys stay with their honeys a while
but a few think their marriage a trial
and the vows which they made
are now tattered and frayed;
they may walk into Hell single file.

They may walk into Hell single file
to be punished right after the trial
for their earthly misdeeds
but the righteous succeeds
looking down from above with a smile.

Looking down from above with a smile,
the Lord sees how we handle each trial
that we face in this life;
be it sorrow or strife.
It’s all there in your personnel file!

If it’s all in your personal file
that you use when you primp and you style
fingernails, I would bet
that the paint was still wet
and the cleaning will take you a while.
