"Thee and me..." 'Bettejo Dux' (Vintage Bettejo)

Bettejo Dux has lived on the cosmic Garden
 Island of Kaua'i for over 40 years.

 and is the author of the famed novella, "The Scam." 
 Her latest fiction"Children of extinction"
 is now  released and available on Amazon!
A Poem by Bettejo Dux, "Thee and Me..."



Steve Saylor & Bettejo at the
27th annual Taste of Hawai'i...


We must not lose the child in us
We must not lose the magic.

We must never lose the lover, that would be truly tragic.

We are funny loving creatures
All of us together Skipping through the universe, holding hands forever Laughing in the face of fate.

Knowing that the game is
Always different always new
And always just the same.

We’ve worn a million costumes, we’ve played a million roles
But writing the script of the play we’re in
Is always in our control.

So come my darling darlings and play the game with glee
So  the heading of this brave new act
Can be titled thee and me.

Bettejo a few years back playing checkers
with her nephew...

I like the idea of donning bright little signs we can drape around our necks that say: DO NOT DISTURB DAYDREAMER AT WORK...
