Every so often, I just get in a mood and write a quirky poem whose origin even I don’t really understand. “Your Penney-Ante Speeches” is one such poem and appears in my first book of poems, The Wind and the Shadows. Even if I don’t know where it came from exactly, it’s blunt playfulness makes me smile and does make a point.

Oh my, reminds of something I wrote that pertained to a political person. Your words much more expressive. I am still learning the how too’s of writing.
