Perhaps that is the ultimate disguise - when you live the cover story.The term of art in the intelligence business is: Creating a Legend. It starts with an operational necessity, develops as a course of act...

A Regular Job

Run, rabbit run.Dig that hole, forget the sun,And when at last the work is done--Don't sit down. It's time to dig another one.I've done regular work. I've had a six figure salary. I've done cool things with official sanction. I've been the rabbit.Today is another day, and I work another way, making more money without anyone to tell me what time to ...

Winters Blooms

In winter when the flowers die,Amid the weather drear,Behind the glass in heated room,The buds of spring bloom bright and clear.Their fragrant scent and color hide,Behind stained glass of springtime bloom,A gentle blush for me alone,A springtime bride for her loving groom.Roses' thorns aren't needed here,Kept safe behind the fortress walls,Adoring ...
