Papa Samuel sits in his rocking chair with pen and pad in hands.
He sometimes jots down a short quatrains of what is on is mind.
His forced participation in the great war left him broken in body and mind.
He does not talk any more.
He barely eats.
And, as his only son, I know he is ready for death...
As he lives his final days inside his own mind...
In Days Past!
IN TIMES PAST (AN EXCERPT)
I remember the time like it was yesterday... the days when democratic world logic stopped in its tracks!
I was a young man back then... when the Russians first stormed America from across the strait!
They instantly took Anchorage and Fairbanks... and the horror war was full on when they invaded Seattle!
They called it the Trump War... and millions more died when North Korea Nuked DC and NYC... and now old men like me dream to live in... days past!
