You Were Born Bad Charlotte! You Were Born Bad! And You Will Die Bad!

the sun sets in the east
with it goes the warm embrace of love
the night brings no stars
most chicago nights seldom do

give me your word
before this windy city takes it
i long for my summer nights
a lovers embrace

but spring in this city holds no friend at all
the snow still comes
even with the sun staying up long

where is your summer
bring me your heat
i give you my heart

you hand me a receipt

Sometimes In Rome

Cymbeline is set sometimes in Britain as well

I saw the play one Sunday set in Chicago
at the Shakespeare Theater on Navy Pier
and came away astonished and heartened
by actors who gave life to printed words

An obscure play that I last heard of in school
brought this viewer to listening closely
and marveling at Cymbeline and Belarius,
the wise Pisanio and the lovely Imogen

reflecting on the final lines of Act V -
'Never was a war did cease,
Ere bloody hands were wash'd, with such a peace.'

Our Nephew Thomas

Our nephew Thomas Duggan died at twenty three
And he is one I'll never meet or see
For he is one i never met before
And he is at rest now forever more
In distant Chicago in the U S A
From where i live a half a World away
His loss to his family time can only heal
My late brother John's son he has one brother Neil
I met his mother Nancy years ago
A lovely lady this for her a tragic blow
A devoted mother and to John a loving wife
She has a heavy cross to bear in life
He died in an accident in April of this year
Such sad news one would rather not to hear.

In Your Company

in your company
there is always this laughter
and we know what is found
in every story
in every word
in every syllable even before it is uttered

it is this familiarity with our wits
and humors that keep as together
in the same room

we laugh about almost everything
and yet come to think of it

you are in texas and she is in chicago
and i am in philippines...

it is this circle of friendship...yes, we are in it now
now let us start another story,

are you there?
