Verse and Perverse
This book is a collection of ballads and rhymes reflecting the life experiences of the author. The author has a background rich in real life encounters with danger and near catastrophe. The ballads recount in rhyming verse actual events in the author's life which by accident or design put him in harms way and from which he luckily escaped alive to tell about. Many of the rhymes reflect philosophically or satirically many of the problems everyone must confront while living in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, being contemporary with our troubled times in the western world. Some of the rhymes delve into the mysteries of the sea (the author has spent the last thirty five years as an industrial deep see diver), while others involve mountain climbing and other high risk pursuits. There is no lack of a mocking sense of humor that threads it's way throughout this book in spite of the serious nature of much of it's contents. The greatest fear the author has ever faced is the prospect of boring his reader. With bated breath, he leaves that judgment to the reader.
