As science-buff, and science writer too, I have bit of technophilic view But sentimental, also, is my mind And as you see, I'm poetry-inclined I'm part of groups that work to conquer space And spread the eggs to safeguard our young race A skeptic, charity worker, and a dreamer And businessman, and anti-evil-schemer A buff in science, and in history Has led to politics (with little mystery) So I am often writing in that vein But I am fond of people, in the main I'm slowly writing novels (aren't we all)? But only late heard science fiction's call. All writing prior's been on tech and biz But now my muse for fiction starts to fizz. And poetry is new to me as well I'm rough at it, as you can surely tell I grew up breathing Heinlein, Niven, Clarke; For me, their worlds have always held a spark But heretofore I read, and did not write. With help from you, and luck, now I just might. Three novels done so far, a fourth's begun At fifty thousand words so far. It's fun. And work, and sweat, and needs some real critique... So I'll do some, then you can take a peek. I follow evolution, physics, space, Of Paleontology I too have a trace. At sundry other sciences I dabble. And wordplay (though I don't spend time with Scrabble). And history, American and the world Excites me as that panoply's unfurled I answer science questions in some groups That Yahoo hosts, along with other troops I'm learning bits of law now on the side To handle better life's oft-bumpy ride I had a techno-business in SoCal With my departed Lady as my pal These days my itch for science writing's sated With research grant proposals. Highly rated! The writing keeps me busy—and I've been— But thanks for looking, my (potential?) friend!
