Award Winning Poet

Who would of imagined that I could add “Award Winning Poet” to my resume. The Editors at Poetry.com have decided to give me the “Editor’s Choice Award” for my poem about the New York City Transit Strike in December.

A City Halt Calling
‘Twas the night before the strike
and all through the city
New Yorkers were in a fright
It was such a pity

It would never be the same
early in the morning
for the dawn came
a city halt was calling

Communters were scared
wondering how to get to and from
If the buses and train would not be there
they had to make some effort to come

Some had a plan
whether or not to brave a freezing day
While others took a stand
Most wish this nightmare would go away
