A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Lance Landall’s Poetry – 6 November 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

If you haven’t read Lance Landall’s poems, you’re missing a lot of good stuff! From humor to good advice, you’ll love his unique way of inspiring as well as entertaining.

I love these four lines taken from a poem titled “Planet Earth” by Lance Landall:

“We can’t exchange this planet, for another that’s brand new,
But, given our track record, we’d just mess up that one too.
We’ve only got this planet, so forget trips to the moon,
And we’d better act quickly, lest calamity hits soon.”

There is so much more from this gifted author from Wellington, New Zealand, who is married with six children. Reading “A Play On Words” and “Another Play On Words” is so much fun! Here are two lines taken from “Another Play On Words” along with the closing four lines:

“Are adders good with numbers, does a nighthawk stay up late,
Are jewel beetles engaging, do trumpetfish sound that great?”
“Yes, another play on words, as I can’t resist such fun,
’Though there’s nothing like some humour, when all is said and done.
It helps clear the clouds away, and thus brightens up our day,
So here’s another poem, that hopefully, sends sun your way.”

See what I mean? This is just a little taste of the wonderful poems by Lance Landall, as well as his bio and photo, awaiting you. So be sure to visit:
