    Poem Commentary

    Inspired by the screen name "WordSlinger"

    Itchy Trigger Finger

    A tumble weed blows though town,
    In the saloon with an itchy trigger finger,
    At a time when courage must abound,
    Word slinger your words linger,
    Deconstructed and profound.

    it was inspired by his name

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
