Curmudgeons, Conundrums and Druthers that Sail


Come hither my friends

And you will hear many a tale

about Curmudgeons, Conundrums and

Druthers that Sail


Marc writes the stories in a rhythmic tone

Gabe will bring them to life in a world all his own



You may consider your life’s ambitions to be complete,

But they will not have been if you have never occupied Sesame Street



Anthropomorphized creatures  you will see,

Donkeys and Elephants who serve you  and me.

And while we are on Capitol Hill,

 look up above, you may see Senator Crackerbarrel

floating with Senator Pill.


I will introduce you to an erudite Dinosaur,

whose wonderful book is in your neighborhood bookstore,


You’ll see those that you once had admired

Are not fully retired,

despite what you’ve heard.

For inside these pages, you’ll find Kojak, Colombo and Mortimer Snerd,

And just when you think

That you have seen it all,

You will meet two legends who played  baseball.



A cabbie from one of the Stans

Whose Circuitous route through the Garden State

changes a family’s holiday plans.


Some Shmendriks, Schlimazels, Shlocks and Schlemiels

Who all get together, for their holiday meals.


And to top it all off,  with much more than a story,

You’ll read my attempt to write allegory

A  story about Those Druthers of Pine

and Gumptions made of wood so refine

and their neighbor The   Umbrage, made of the Heaviest Twine

I hope you enjoy our book full of tales,

“Curmudgeons, Conundrums and Druthers that sail!!””
