    Our own William Preston blew away the competition in Writer’s Digest hit a thoddaid competition, but I am delighted to hit the list at #7 for my poem Maybe. I can’t quite believe that of all the poems I’ve written, this humorous little poem placed in the contest, but I’m nevertheless delighted! F or the complete list go to https://bit.ly/2Ui4tCA

    He said, run, run, as fast as you can
    You can’t catch me, the gingerbread man
    But I belted him with a raisin band
    And piped white frosting over his hands
    When I bit his leg, he could run no more
    Play again, I begged, I’ll make amends

  3. A while back, a few poets from Kansas City, who are frequenters at Robert Brewerville, urged me to submit my work to VeteransVoices.org, a magazine which publishes essays and poems from veterans and hospitalized servicemen and women. They have been around since WWII, and produce three editions per year. Being unsure of what they might like, I sent them 14 pieces. Although they have a policy of not publishing more than two works per submitter per edition, they called me an said they wanted them all. So far, six of my poems have appeared, and one of them won a grand prize, with a $50 award, and the others have been prized at $10 to $20 each. I don’t think I will cancel my pension just yet.
