Bill served in the US Navy at Guantanimo Bay and, out of boredom (the cost of peace), began to memorize poetry, in particular the long saga's of Robert Service, e.g. "The Cremation of Sam McGee" and "The Shooting of Dan McGrew." Among his repertoire is "The Piddling Pup." The Piddling Pup The poem loses its poetic beauty without the melodious tones of Dr. Dwyer. Thank you, YouTube.
