I have met this great man
Len Wilson is his name
Since the day I have read him
I haven't been the same

He has opened my eyes
with his words on the page
I have seen the light
because of this political sage

He exploits the government's flaws
so that we can all see it clear
They hide behind locked doors
and fill our mind's with fear

Len does the research
and shows us in black and white
Len breaks it down into simple terms
and damn, he is usually right

Besides his political satire
Len is a funny comical writer to
He also writes about love and desire
hell, there's not much he can't do

So thank you Len
for opening our eyes and our minds
Thank you for being here
such honesty and talent is so hard to find

Great tribute to Len CONGRATULATIONS

Right. The man is a rare find. Len is a life-long student and teacher of the way it is. He is passionate while remaining level headed, wise while being funny as hell. All the world is under his microscope and, while he is critical of the government and prejudice in any form, he is unfailingly kind to the rest of us. We are fortunate to be in his presence and especially so to be called his friends.


You've done a pretty good job on him here. He is deserving of the kudos, as you are of the award. ML

Holy Moly, Joe!!...To say I'm honored would be an understatement.Thank you, so much, fellow fish. Coming from a talent like you, this is a real ego boost..I do like to put things simply.Politicians love to muddy the waters with complicated bull, but truth is always simple, huh?...You know of course, Joe...This goes into "Favorites"..Write on, Brother...len

Yep, not to mention he looks great in a pair of heels! roflmao Len is one of a kind, which is probably a good thing since the country might not survive two of him. He is, indeed, the the satire knight of all time, hilarious and just an all around talented writer and great guy to hang around with. Great tribute to a guy that more than deserves the recognition, Joe, and while I'm on the subject, you're not so bad yourself either - Jude
