       I am recovering from a mild stroke, and this poem represents both an attempt to test my mechanical skills and also my executive writing skills.

    dotsDaggers In The Darknessdots

    Oh dagger in the darkness
    piercing from the night's dark sky
    leaving many widows mourning
    while fatherless children cry.

    Oh thieves that stalk the night
    leave my restless soul alone
    leave me to my own devises
    my own sins to atone.

    For I have work to do
    gracious gifts yet to bestow
    so thieves that stalk the darkness
    pack your dreary things and go.
