From the poem, BEAUTY
Who can forgive a detestable fault?
The relief is our conscience born in us all.
The patience of Job, the devotion of Ruth,
Shall always prevail in pursuit of the truth.
In my late age, and pray before I die,
Give me the strength to see with Your eye.
With all the trouble and pain from sinners like me,
It’s still a beautiful world if we want it to be.
From the back page:
BED BUG STEW Is two books in one volume!
First is a compilation of short story fiction and poetry on a wide range of subject matter: science fiction, messages from the heart, and a little terror thrown in. You will laugh out loud and shed a tear, and you will remember all the characters and their flaws, strengths, motivations, and sometimes the depths of their souls.
You will meet a senior citizen who hears other people’s thoughts through his hearing aids, a football coach who shuns interviews, a widow who changes her life for one that she loathed, a mason whose soul has been crushed, a man who claims to have been in thousands of movies, and a ballplayer whose best moments were off the field. And many many more…
The second book is the author’s first-person account of his attendance at the New York Yankee Men’s Fantasy Camp in January 2023. Yes, it is hilarious.
Get a copy for yourself, your favorite reader, and that particular Baseball fanatic in your life (or all of them! There is something for everyone!).
BED BUG STEW is an adult collection, not to be compared with my other venture in illustrated children’s books… which are available on Amazon, exclusively.
