Coke isn’t it

The Coca-Cola Company spent $4 billion last year on advertising.

Read that again. Think about it one more time.

That’s enough money to buy 1,000,000,000 books for kids who don’t have any books.

So, Coke spent $4 billion to try to persuade you to buy more soda.

Is that a good outcome of “the free market” doing its thing?

What’s the benefit, and who’s getting it?

My first book of poems, Writing Rainbows with 59 new poems, is now available on Amazon Kindle, or free in Kindle Unlimited, click here

On this website you can read: my poetry in free verse and 5–7–5 format, written in a way that makes it possible for you to know, as precisely as possible, what’s going on in my mind and in my imagination; thoughtful book reviews that offer some exceptional critique of the book instead of a simple book summary; examinations of history that did and didn’t happen; examples of my love affair with words; reflections on the quotations, art, and wisdom of famous and not-so-famous people, and occasional comments on politics and human nature.

Your comments on my poems, book reviews and other posts are welcome.
