30 Days of  Truth…Starting July 1, 2011

Day 14 – A hero that has let you down. (letter)

Dear Columbo…
I loved your dashing ways with the rumpled coat, the great delivery.
The world needed you to solve more cases,
put a way more creeps…with those “one more thing….”
leading statements.
I always wanted to be able to have a delivery of language the way you did.
Your eye was false, mine “lazy”,
but I just never could do that great suspenseful presentation of words.
As a boss I envied you…
I could have eliminated so many bad employees that way 
and avoided paying a lot of unemployment to the undesireables of the world.

Why did you leave me?  I still need to master the craft of masterful delivery.

I know you are now enchanting the angels…
they are blessed to have you while I am blue.

Your friend in Maine

Remembering dear friend, Bill Clark, Columbo’s brother from another mother.
