Preface to Poems?

(c) 1996 by Fred Flaxman

The reason people can't stand the poetry of our times

is because they can't see the stanzas or hear the rhymes.

When they don't comprehend what it means,

they feel it ain't worth a can of beans!


My poems are much more like prose

'cause I don't like my readers to doze.

I hope you'll smile, snicker, or laugh real deep.

I'll try to keep you from falling asleep!
