  1. To Heck With Tech

    Humorous Poem About Change

    A little old lady, I do not mind being.
    What I find I don't like are the changes I'm seeing.
    My marbles are still rolling in the right direction.
    I enjoy this old world, though it has imperfections.

    Will I slowly wither like a leaf
    That falls upon the earth?

  11. Long Goodbyes

    Inspirational Poem About Alzheimer's

    Nancy Reagan once said, "Alzheimer's is just another word for a long goodbye"
