At a Different Kind of School

I studied long for what I know,
On streets and in the woods;
BOTH schools lacked 'creditation
But curriculums were GOOD!

I learned to make a slingshot,
Awhistle and a sled...
So many times, wild berries
A hungry boy have fed!

I learned of plants that I could eat,
And those that I could 'smoke'...
Of how to tell the trees apart;
The maple, birch and oak.

I hunted squirrels and rabbits,
Then fished the streams in Spring;
Sold catfish to the rest'raunts
For what money they would bring.

"Respect for ALL Creation."
"Apply the Golden Rule."
Are just a bit of what I learned....
At 'a different kind of school.'

God is Not Against You - He Came on an All Out Rescue Mission to Save You


...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them... 2 Cor 5:19

Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Acts 13:38

Most refreshing with a pure, honest sound. You will go down as one of the best of modern poets.
