WARD KELLEY IS NOT your typical guy from the Midwest that works at a hardware store. First of all, he is the Vice President of Logistics for TruServ the parent company of True Value Hardware, Servistar and Coast to Coast. This guy is responsible for over 10,000 hardware stores. What is more, for much of his 48 years, this family man of adopted children has written poetry. In fact, he has been published in over 200 publications both online and in traditional print.

The two works here are historical poems about historical figures. Kelley dares to dramatize their most intimate moments. I found this approach to verse quite novel. You decide if Ward Kelly moves all the nuts and bolts to the right places.
