This & That

Match Of The Century
By Donna L Martin

It was the match of the century, everyone said.
Goliath over Davey by more than a head.
But Davey knew how this usually goes
As he led with his left and lightening fast toes
With a jump spin side kick that dazzled and dazed
And left poor Goliath with eyes a bit glazed
His friends later asked how he won with such ease?
“It’s really no secret, I just eat my wheaties!”

A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing - Eugene Ionesco

Half my life is an act of revision. - John Irving

The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do. - Thomas Jefferson

I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged...I had poems which were re-written so many times I suspect it was just a way of avoiding sending them out. - Erica Jong
