Can social commentary really be poetry? Poof it's my poetry.


Background Information

I'm a fairly literate opinionated†76 year old survivor whose life has been influenced by many courageous personalities from all walks of life. Most of all my major influences after parents have been writers, and teachers. I can't begin to list them all so I won't list any.† I will say I am because they were.


I†write†primarily under the name M. Bennett Hooper, M is for myself whom I am discovering daily, Bennett is for my father whom I miss, and Hooper is for my lover/husband who has shown me the true meaning of unconditional love with 58 years of friendship. How is a 55+ year marriage achieved? Marry a man/woman who worships you and return the flavor


We† celebrated 57 years of true bliss on 18 August 2013..We do it our way.
