ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

The Long Run

In memory of the victims of
The Boston Marathon bombing;
They truly are BostonStrong.

One foot in front of the other
Over and over
Again and again
The pain keeps building
As the minutes tick by
But the end is in sight
And they just won’t stop

One bomb explodes, then another
Heroes step forward
Who could have done this?
Two sprint from the pack
And the hours tick by
But the manhunt is on
And they just won’t stop

Determined, pursuers press
The pace behind them
For one, it’s too much
The other trembles
As the days tick by
But lawmen are coming
And they just won’t stop

The terror finally ends –
The fallen, revered
The heroes, honored
The grieving, consoled
As the years tick by
They’ll support each other
And they just won’t stop
