Iíve watched a thousand kingdoms fall-
And half a hundred rise.
And Nero play with Rome in flames-
And laughed at itís demise.

Iíve trodden shores where human foot-
Has never left a print..
Explored those long lost dynasties
And wondered where they went.

Iíve surfed uncharted realms of space-
Black holes are my domain.
How oft Iíve wished to enter in-
And not come out again.

I was old ere time began-
And after Iíll remain.
A loner, surfing all alone...
My sole companion ,,,,pain.

To have a heart....though it be broke-
Would suffice I confess...
For even agony of love-
Would beat this emptiness.

Created, I, to surf alone-
Alone I must remain...
Alas, my quest goes on and on...
The Surfer is my name.

Well, I sure missed it and sorry I did. Excellent writing, as usual, 'slinger.

I do so like this.  Smooth as scotch whiskey,
served perfectly, straight up.

Slinger-
Very nicely done.
You are so versatile, Slinger.
Refreshingly frank.
