The Word of Mankado

By: Roger W. Ranchino

About the Book

Constantly convince myself

That living is for real

Excited about existing

But existing, no big deal


I’m just biding time

Waiting for my ride

I can feel it coming

As it slowly grows inside


A journey of self-reflection and truth, The Word of Mankado reaches for the thoughts, laughter, and tears inside all of us.
