Thoughtfully Humorous Poetry
The Poetry of Bob McCluskey, Book Four
Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1926, I spent my childhood growing up in the depression years. I had a stint in the Royal Canadian Air Force, then worked as a fireman on a coal burner on the Great Lakes. I also spent a few short years in the Canadian Army. I finished my training just before World War II ended, to my youthful disappointment, but with gratitude now that I’m hopefully a little wiser.
I spent the next few years in a variety of jobs, but I finally became a beer store manager with the Brewers Warehousing in Toronto for twenty-seven years. I moved to British Columbia with my first wife, Margaret, to be with our two married daughters and their families. Margaret and I were married for fifty-four years, and she passed away in 2008. Since I met my new bride, Agnes Mary, my poetry has begun to manifest. It has prospered for the past eight years. May it long continue!
This will be my fifth book of poetry composed and written since 2008 and is a somewhat pithy and humorous poetic commentary on life’s adventures...enjoy.
