“A world of harpies, and I’m involved; / With every mystery that I solve.” — Andrew Mitchell Schaeffer; ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Schaeffer summarizes this point, however briefly, in a poem entitled “The Present Time”; which remains unpublished and complimentary to this website, Copyright 1999. “I was the batter dignified, / I heard the pitch go whizzin’ by; / And if it was my Heart to swell, / I’d knock that pitch straight thru to Hell!”
