Everything evolved to be so different as he grew older and wiser

Little things became huge, the huge things became so small

Every wrinkle in his face captured memories that witnessed a lifetime

Perhaps his reputation was that of a mild mannered servant

However he had sharp, hard tusks that had seen more than one battle

And he had the girth and stature to use them effectively

Not that most of his adversaries tried, and those that did

They usually ended up being trampled underfoot.

Industry (an acrostic poem)

 

It all started with a glimmer of an idea

Not anything big, barely something you could see if you squinted

Dim as it was, someone saw the importance of it

Under their careful eyes, the idea grew and grew

Soon there was a prototype, then first generation

That morphed into a product that they could be proud of

Releasing it into the world to see how it would be received

Yet already working on what would come next

Almost Fell In Love (an acrostic poem)

At one time Riley thought he really cared for Tabitha

Little kisses snuck in when no one was looking

Making those goofy faces when they sent each other snaps

On the outside everything was perfect

Still, it was doomed to failure from the start

Too bad Tabitha was already married

 

Feelings were hurt when she wouldn’t leave her husband

Even after Riley had professed his feelings

Looking back it was probably all for the better

Leaving her husband would have put doubt in their relationship

 

It would have festered with Riley, wondering would she do it again

Never fully trusting her though he would try so hard

 

Little by little Tabitha and he grew apart

Only Jessica being there for him got him through it

Vixen that she was, she showed him what commitment could deliver

Eventually he grew to appreciate the wife he already had over the one he wanted
