Everett Emerald

Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)



Everett Emerald was ambidextrous at times
Yet, men like him were some dimes a dozen.

Everett Emerald was a man of little words
Yet, his actions would send shockwaves throughout
All the extension cords in the world.

Everett Emerald was wondrously humbled
Lived his life to the absolute fullest
Had not a gamblin’ bone in his body
Nor a tumbled tan on his face.
