Beautiful Poem by Billy Collins

I've been a bit busy so I haven't been writing much so I figured it would be a good opportunity to share a poem by one of my favorite poets Billy Collins.

My Grandfather

My Grandfather
was a very Special Man...
a Great Man..even very many people
He was a Scholar
a Teacher
..a Hero in Wartime
they say

............but to me
he'd read stories pjamas
before tucking me in
to a duvet..
...blown breeze
in the dark room
...with the ticking clock
the faint scent of him

my grandfather

Man arrested in corruption probe

A local father was arrested earlier this morning amidst allegations of corruption.
The man was charged with passing off bribes to his 11 year old son in the hopes that he would perform better in school according to the charges filed this morning.
Local school officials became suspicious when some of the boys peers began noticing the boy flaunting nosh more than he could afford. The officials then began noticing a sudden increase in checks the boy received from his teachers and put 2 and 2 together.
The local police chief in his news conference said "It his shameful that this man thinks that he can manipulate the system by buying off his child, unfairly tilting the balance in the open marketplace...we will not tolerate this kind of influence peddling"
The boy was quietly approached a few weeks ago and offered a plea bargain to cooperate in the probe. He also received a new DS game. It appeared that was the clincher and he was wired and sent to record the next attempt.
On the tape, you can clearly hear the man saying "Hey..I'm so proud of your behavior the last 2 weeks, if you keep it up I'll take you for ice cream next sunday.."
There are no further details at this time.

New Blog

I'm starting a new blog called Jewish Creativity Xchange to encourage creativity in all its forms. I'd love to uncover dormant talent and give people a place they can show off and get feedback.
