Many of Clarke's poems are based on characters encountered in his travels. Some poems are macabre while others have a military or patriotic flavor. Still others are strictly for fun

This volume of poems is a companion piece to my first book “SOLDIER BALLADS and OTHER TALES” and runs the gambit from the serious to the humorous and as I mentioned above the macabre. I did fall in love with California’s “gold country” in my younger years hence a number of my poems are about this area which is steeped in history. Along the way I’ve met some colorful characters which do of course show up in my poetry. My poetry is rhyme based. It is uncomplicated and unpretentious. The poems are fairly easy to memorize if the reader is so disposed. I like to write in a down home style and I’ll often drop the “g” at the end of a word in favor of an apostrophe. I sometimes use accents in my poems to pay homage to my ancestors.
