It's Not Personal
James Rogerson


It’s business,
It’s not personal.
That makes it all
Much worse-nal.

Jim Rogerson calls himself a "proud liberal redneck," a title earned from an upbringing in a small North Carolina town followed by an education at the University of Chicago. After a career as an archivist and records manager for the University of North Carolina, Jim is now retired and living in Charlotte, where he enjoys writing historical works, creative non-fiction, study guides, manuals for archives and records management, and poetry--the topics of which know no bounds.

Let's hear it for liberal rednecks! Wish there were more of them. Clever word play in this poem.

Short, but punchy, and I like the self-description, "proud liberal redneck."
