Shorty McCabe by FORD, Sewell

Yes, it’s been a couple of years since I quit the ring. . . . I slid into a quiet corner for a month or so, and then I dropped into the only thing I knew how to do, trainin’ comers to go against the champs. It ain’t like pullin’ down your sixty per cent of the gate receipts, but there’s worse payin’ jobs.

Course, there’s times when I finds myself up (altro…)

It’s sort of the same theme embodied in Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince, who was saddened to discover that his rose was like any other rose, except when he further realized that his rose depended upon (altro…)

His Lady Friend by LARDNER, Ring

This week’s poem is taken from Ringgold Wilmer “Ring” Lardner’s Bib Ballads book of poetry about his child. In his Forward he says
Dear Parents:—Don’t imagine, please,
It’s in a boastful spirit
I fashion verses such as these;…
…But babes are babes, and mine, no doubt,
Is very much like others.
