Welcome to The Chronicle of Change

The Chronicle of Change is a collection of poetry written since the 1990s. As most of the poems are in hard copy, I will have to encode them one by one, so bear with me. I will be posting them as I go along.

The dates of posting are not necessarily the dates of creation.

I do not and never will claim that they are good, but if you find value in them, I thank you. You are most welcome to comment. I welcome both praise and criticism.

If for any reason you need to quote, lift excerpts, print, publish, or refer to the poems in any way, I would appreciate a note or an email, an acknowledgment of ownership, and an acknowledgment of the website. Intellectual property rights do apply.

Here lies...

Here lies the dreams
and aspirations
of an era gone by;
the wisdom of the ages;
and the candid
humor of life.

Here lies the nightmares
and miseries
of an oppressive past;
the foolishness of an old man;
and the cursed
sarcasm of fate.

May God have mercy on my soul!

- written some time in 2000 at the wake of a grandparent
