Have you all seen the advertisements for the release of the Secretariat movie?
It is a wonderful story.
We plan to see the movie but there is something missing!
How can we possibly go to this event and not miss Troll ?
Once the trailer begins broadcasting
I am not thinking about the casting or the photography or the actors or even the story.
Immediately I pine for what we have already missed;
regular updates from the expert.
The man who would never let us believe in a story told improperly.
A man who would be generous with praise and respect if the story is told correctly.
We are missing his excitement.
We are missing his knowledge.
We are missing his love for a fine athlete.
We are missing his passion for life.
It makes me sad.
I still miss Mute Mondays.
I still miss our Haiku games.
I am annoyed.
With those who stole his joy in us.
With those who defend meaness by calling it humor.
With those who cruised the blog family disseminating falsehoods.
With those who implemented premeditated harm to a fine soul.
With those who did not respect what was given.
You should all be stomped into compost by Secretariat's ghost.
