My poem Generations made its appearance early in the week.

It talks about the way we do things for the generations before and after us, often without any thanks.

A true Sandwich Generation poem, it calls on us to not be surprised, if more immediate generations overlook us. Perhaps somewhere down the road, we will be recognized for all the hard work we have done.

That's all for this week. See you next time around!
