Ugh, ugh ~~ a 'Mind the Sign' poem

Source Unknown

Sign says

Sign says don't do that, but
do they really mean 'that'

Will exceptions be made
Money, power, boldness

Those blessing will far
Don't be afraid to ask

A dollar or a pound
Opens doors, goes places

If for art or for hire
Makes a difference sure

Take your chances today
'Morrow I might say no

Today I'm on the take
Another day means "no"

War ~~ Wave your flag wildly ~~ a 55 Plus Poem

I'm not into war
I don't read about wars
I don't watch war movies
I don't like to talk about war
Why should I write about wars
I will tell you what I have to say
I am thankful for those who fought
They fought for your and my freedoms
Five Army years I spent

 - A college dropout when I went in, I learned electronics during my second hitch at a NIKE Hercules school for maintaining the computer and radars.  After I was discharged my education and experience qualified me for a job as a Philco Corporation Tech Rep Field Engineer. 
 - I held engineering slots with the company, then Ford Aerospace, being a Senior Aerospace Engineer when I left the company and NASA for a teaching career.  Thank you, Army  training.
