♦ Ballad Of Gunner The Gambler: Gunner Loses Everything ♦

Poem By Michael Fischer

Gunner pulls the one-armed bandit
to see what his future holds.
The machine reveals his fate
and writes his failure in stone.

He’s out in the wintry cold,
where the drifting snow steals his sight.
He’s without a healing agent;
Nothing will make this right.

Gunner’s spirit is defeated
by the shame that besets him.
Tears slide down his crimson face;
He knows he’s done himself in.

He never meant to hurt loved ones;
He had good intentions.
But his underhand affairs
is what cost him in the end.

We're thrown hard into a world
that we know nothing about.
We're born small, weak, and speechless,
troubled with our thoughts of doubt!

The demon takes shelter in her fear.
It awakens just prior to her slumber,
takes a hatchet to her insides,
and leaves her vulnerable in the night!

A Hidden Treasure!

Behind those thick-rimmed glasses
stands a woman with much potential.
She's bright, humorous, and beautiful;
But she doesn't realize it.

Your heart is my sun;
It brightens every day
and is always with me
wherever I go.

A Little Treasure Hunt

I clean my room in search
of fragments of old poetry.
I survey every note pad,
every sheet of scrap paper,

I’ll Meet You At Heaven’s Gate

I dreamt all day about you babe;
Which is no different, from other days.
I miss you dearly sweetheart;
You’ll always have a home in my heart.
