Most Folks…--By Richard Sponaugle--United States

Most Folks…

use a tiny fraction of their brains
and writers are very much the same
But what sets us far apart
is that we use all of our heart

Richard Sponaugle was born 4-20-60 in Maryland and raised in Northern Virginia.  He received a BA from George Mason University.  A prolific poet and songwriter, he has been published in many venues.  


  1. !!! Yes! I get this! In fact I'd written just something similar a week or so back about writers writing and readers reading without much connection ever achieved between the two except for a nod of understanding from the vibe or feeling evoked!

  2. Hi Richard. Nice one. Fun, witty, and somewhat true. Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!
