About the author from RJWalkerSpokenWord.com:
I write poems and jokes about loneliness, pizza, and cartoons.
I’ve worked as an EMT for 5 years and consequently I’ve been poor for 5 years.
So, I figured that if I was going to be poor, I might as well be an artist! Like all the other poor people!
So I rode my 1979 Chevrolet Motorhome into the sunset and decided to become a full time Spoken Word Artist.
He has a number of other EMS oriented works including the Anatomy Of An Overdose Book. I encourage you to go over and check out a fellow (former) EMTs work.
