Homer’s (the blind man’s) poetry as seen by helmut s.
I do things
for I have to do such
not seeing, not hearing, not feeling
and I do for that’s what I was told to do
I do as mother tells me
bringing the fathers anger upon me,
I do as father tells me, having mother weeping,
I do as preachers tell me and the gods throw lightning at me,
I do as I think the gods want me to be
and become an outcast to society.
I battle my battle my daily battle, doing every one right, but
I know in the end of the battle,
I too shall get the ax and
I can already hear the gods laughing
And the Greek soldiers
around Achilles consider their options,
of which sailing home, isn’t the only one.
Achilles is still sour at the King and making a face
like eating unripe fruits.
Yet at the bargaining table he is sweeter
than chocolate dipped cherries.
Phoenix an older charioteer speaks up:
“In your heart don’t leave me behind,
not even if Zeus himself
would swear to scrape away
the scurf of age and make me young again . . .”
And he reminds the men of the time
which has past since they set out from Hellas.
He reminds the men of the women at home
and how wonderful they are.
And he talks about the sad news of the blood feud
with his father, Amyntor, Ormenus son.
And Phoenix tells all how furious his father still is with him.
All such about his father’s mistress,
the one with the dark glistening hair.
The more Amyntor was ignoring his wedded wife,
Pheonix’ mother was begging the son on her knees,
to bed his father’s mistress down
and kill the young girls appetite for an old man.
And Phoenix admits he did as mother asked
he did his home work,
bringing his father’s mistress home,
time after time at home. . .
And Phoenix says:
“They must never call me a father killer
even when he attacks me I shall not fight him for he is my father!”
Phoenix ends his story
with a plea to the gods to check his anger
and to forgive him for ever having evil thoughts against his father.

he didn’t plan to read.
Did his teacher at MPC
plan to use much of the two kilos,
four pounds at five-hundred grams,
in American it was even more,
four pounds point four?
For the pound-price he could
have feasted on Subway sandwiches
or non-meat hamburgers which he didn’t eat.

Only one command removed cells for good,
The “Unplug the darn thing command.”
Shortcut menus are everything
There was no shortcut from Sand City to Coralitos.
His menu said “meat” and at the meat market
he selected the choicest juiciest steaks in sight
He got four each, of all the various, smoked
sausages too. There were twenty-one,

Hot dogs she liked, Sunshine had said.
Would six inches do? He asked
the butcher to measure each,
The doubt about capacity were swept aside,
a hungry belly growling.

And his though were occupied with
clicking a row heading button

With the Freeze Panes command
he could freeze rows or columns from scrolling.
So he unfroze: Window > Freeze > Unfreeze
He even applied names to his cells
and named his cells, not for he cared
but for reference, future reference
He had not forgotten last time
the time he tried to find
the darn cell
# QR horizontal and 69496 vertical?
He hoped, he never shall need it again,
the cell he named egotrip

Macros make a computer user’s life much easier,
provided one being familiar with macros.
He bought a bunch of macro-ed plant-hangers.
Macros can be helpful in series of worksheets,
Yet they are not essential to create a book.

What a big difference between
copying and cutting before moving.
Cut and paste, so much like a thief in the night.
Copy and paste, is just like taking spy-pictures.
Column heading buttons affect the whole column.
It was the guy up front twenty cars away on
a tractor who slowed the traffic down.
