The Rains AreComing

Footprints in the desert sand left

The rains are coming to parched deserts
washing away the foot prints of the invader.

After the deluge all will be
as if the foot prints never were.

They lost lives, the invader
a limb, a foot, an eye for naught; for a lie.

Perhaps now, with his one good eye
he will see the truth.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
