  • POEM: Investment Brokers by Jim Norausky (3/2/2009 7:18:00 AM)

    I hear people in their 50s and 60s where I work saying that they will never be able to retire. But what happens if we get too ill to continue working? Supposedly that's what retirement was all about: You put in your long hours and then when your body begins to slow down, you can rest, take it easy, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Apparently, that can no longer be taken for granted.

  • POEM: Graduation by Jim Norausky (3/1/2009 6:28:00 AM)

    Has a nice conversational tone to it. I like the line that suggest there's only enough resources to buy the cat food and not enough to afford the cat. Some of the rhymes are quite inventive and pleasing. As someone else mentioned, I personally would dropp the double-spacing. The short lines take us quickly through the poem to the poignant ending and the blank spaces seem to interfere with that. As an aside: I did the 'right' thing and got a BA and MA and would probably be making a better living had I gone to truck driving school or learned to fix septic tanks. :)

  • POEM: Fear Of Your Nation by Martin Byrne (2/24/2009 9:35:00 AM)

    Scalding jeremiad of things to come if we continue to ignore our problems as a nation. It has been my experience that things cannot be just bad in order to shake us out of the passive mode and into the active one; things have to be REALLY bad.
