Poets’ Corner: It Just Is!


The truth isn’t:

Left or Right

Democrat or Republican

Conservative or Liberal

Politician or Citizen

Black or White

Boss or Worker

Rich or Poor

Friend or Foe

Family or Neighbor

Male or Female

Young or Old

Well dressed or unkempt

Living in a mansion or living in the streets

Homeland or far off nation

Eloquently Spoken or nervously stuttered

It Just Is!

As a young man, Philip A. Zentz worked summers on Martha’s Vineyard, commercial fishing out of Menemsha and building stone walls. A retired carpenter, cabinetmaker and schoolteacher, he now lives in East Bridgewater but often visits relatives here.
