written by: Anne G



on my desk
cornucopia of my muse

Tiny treasures
glorious words
petals, roses, shields, and swords

Magic dwells within it covers
penned to order

Imagination lights the way
of what may

Dedication to Roget
Peter Mark
his given name

Roget's Thesaurus
was his book
word equivalents, ultimate gain

Writer's friend
one most devoted
'classification of all knowledge'

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
