The  morn is grey  and overcast

How  long will  this oppression last

There  is a silence  everywhere

One  needs a blade  to cut the air.

The  sky above  is masqued white

With  not a bit of clear  in sight

My  skin is  cool,  I feel  the chill

The  world  I live in  is quite ill.

The  tree limbs  are all stark and bare

With  ne’er  a bit of life out there

No  hint of green  left any place

It  makes me think  we’ve lost the  race !

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 1918, that was the original Armistice Day that morphed into Veteran’s Day in 1954.  My only sibling was born at that precise moment in 1939.  My dad referred to her as his “American Flag” !  She weighed in at 8 lbs. 11 oz. and became the epitome of patriotism as she grew.  She sure could write !  Recently, necessity demanded that I winnow my mementoes, the result  being the discovery of my original DATELINE articles self-published for the patrons of HOBOKEN HOUSE, I will be sharing, without editing, these 30 year old articles and hope you may find the humor is still applicable !  Good luck with that, right ?  For those of you who thirst for other avenues of interest, may I suggest that you read “Thieves of Baghdad” by my son, Colonel Matthew Bogdanos, U.S.M.C., retired, an exciting account of the search for ancient relics.  Do you remember that old commercial, “Try it, you’ll like it !”, perhaps ?                     Sincerely,                                                     Claire B.
