I have always enjoyed writing poetry. I started using poems to get my point across to the office in a tongue in cheek way when I was serving at sea. I have since written poems whenever a topical event or comment relating mainly to governmental legislation gives cause for criticism or derision. My poems are usually directed at subjects that cause us to shake our heads in disbelief.
