Time bracketed between


December first nineteen fifty nine and
December first two thousand twenty three
represents sixty six orbitz
one prized Earthling
named Amélie Beth Harris-McGeehan
completed round the sun.

About half her life linkedin
with spousal enrichment,
(while hunkered down livingsocial
in Woodbury, New Jersey),
hence the hyphenated married name.

Though said endearing eldest sister
approximately thirteen plus months my senior,
ofttimes during mein kampf,
she displayed maternal (motherly) mien.


Back during mine boyhood

dark shadows along the edge of night
(emanating from outer limits
of the twilight zone)
spooked me to flinch
as did appearance
of the boogeyman induce affright

only exacerbated my delicate mental health
punctuated psyche of mine
with disequilibrium psycho-social blight

above named sibling a protector I cite

twilled me in the valley


of love and delight,
an emotional refuge rescued sought
deliverance from anguish
loving succor proffered
peace upon mine body, mind, and soul,
she did immediately expedite
warming cockles of me heart
analogous to affecting, creating,
forging, jumpstarting, offering, and ushering

ideal paradise island temperature

if measured by degrees balmy fahrenheit

pointing, revealing, shining,

and training a guiding-light

unafraid to defend diminutive
docile, inordinately meek brother,

when threatened courtesy bullies
that significantly towered over mine
below average stature height

a measly little skinny, yet zany
(when within comfort of home) lad

naively oblivious to our mother,

when her first born daughter dynamic,

especially smoldering contention
kindled figurative tinder, which squabble


escalated in intensity

sparking vehement feud to ignite

loosing volatile verbal exchange

triggering The Emergency Alert System

to issue warning

lest clear and present danger
(at 324 Level Road)

recorded in history books
licking, overshadowing, rivaling,

and undermining revolution
kickstarted and hashtagged as Jacobite.
