I'm just reporting the facts and I should not receive a raise in pay for this!

Once again to my friends on hubpages- I apologize that this hub is not about you. You are certainly worthy.

I have these "triggers" that are very much like "trigger's that cause migraines. I've had those too. These "hub triggers" trigger hub-creating beyond my control.

A short while back I uncontrollably created a hub about Rossimobis. This is the same uncontrollable "tic" that is forcing me to create a hub about MFB III.

I am slow to create a hub about a hubber. It seems that the "hub-police" should see to this. So I wait and nobody does a "needed hub" that I have no doubts about being a "much-needed-hub". So here I am again.

I know little about MFB III. I'm cautious about asking what the initials represent. He's a former jarhead.

As of today, March 30th, MFB has 1383 hubs! He has 1383 hubs!

MFB III has some of the most beautiful poetry I've ever read.

The profile of MFB III reads:

"Poet, artist, songwriter, guitarist, vocalist, actor, teacher, newspaper columnist. I have done artwork for the White House-during the Clinton era, I have also done artwork that was sent to the Ground Zero clergy division, in the form of a pin, (see Photo) which were handed to the rescuers coming out of the pit.

I produced 1,500 pins hand-sculpted from clay, each of them extremely unique for the 10th anniversary of the Race For The Cure. I have written over 4,400 poems, as well 187 songs, and have spent years in the music and art fields."

And- he can pat his head and rub his tummy!

The music above is as I see MFB III with his talents.

It's like seeing 50 Caliber with a 50 Caliber!

He's rapid fire!

The Ultimate Voice Mail -by MFB III

It came in a

strange black box,
that appeared

out of nowhere,
right next to
another box

I'd cherished
that sat on

my mantle
for so long,

since 1997.

Its unexplainable

presence piqued

my curiosity,
and so I opened

it carefully
a bit leery of

its contents.


Suddenly a warmth
overwhelmed me

as a voice
emitted from

within that said,

"I just wanted

you to know,
how much

I love you,

it's very nice here,
I am doing fine,

and I have

prepared a room
just for you the

next time we

are together."

Then I felt a

soft kiss on

my cheek,
as I closed

the lid, and sat

in shock
on the chair

behind me.

You see,

it was my

precious Mom
who was taken

so suddenly,
sending me a

message from beyond,
left lying next to
her cremated

remains.

It was the
ultimate

voice mail.

When I

opened it again,
there was only silence,
much like what I'd endured
since death claimed her.

I wiped a tear,

and smiled
my heart relieved,

as I placed this

precious voice-box,
next to the ashes
of what was no more.

Perhaps I'll include two more poems. It's such a hard decision. I love so much stuff here on hubpages and for different reasons.It is hard to choose my favorite.

MFB III has the range. He has the eyes of a soldier, a sufferer, a lover, a child, etc. He can see so much that I cannot- so many various and sad and beautiful things. MFB puts it all into words that I wish I had.

MFB III, like Rossimobis, has the "sight" that I do not. They are like me and they are not!

Bamboozled No More! by MFB III

He paced the

bamboo box,

just east of freedom,
a prisoner of war

for sixteen months.
He methodically walked,

in a stooped position,
back and forth,

back and forth.
One direction

in his mind was

to his front door,
where his wife

was waiting with

warm open arms.
Another was to

his favorite restaurant
where piles of

steaming delights

awaited
his rice and

maggot weary palette.
His third set of steps,

led to his mom and dad,
of course he didn't know that,
that path now would

lead to their graves,
they died four weeks ago,

days apart.
His fourth paced

pattern was out of
his hellhole with

joyous leaps.


sadly they came for him

with orders to ship him
to Saigon, for further

interrogation and torture,


He bolted 16 steps

as they opened the door,
that caged him, before an

AK-47 opened his back,
and left him dying

in the jungle rot.

He had a smile

on his lips,

as he died which puzzled
the enemy greatly,

but he had found a new path,
to an open gate above,

as heaven offered him
old friends, and family,

scrumptious food,
and freedom with

wings forevermore.

Heavenly Plunge by MFB

I know I'll be

sitting in the
cheap seats, if I finally reach
the grand stage of heaven.

I've often traded the
gods of rock and roll
for any higher power
in the me, myself and

I-pod of my soul.

Imbibed on

pagan herbs
and fornicated

like a rabbit.

This then is

my confession,
publicly begging

forgiveness.

But no matter
where I have to sit,
in whatever back row
of the nose bleed section.
I plan on taking a
huge leap into

the modge pit,
and dancing with

some heavenly angels.

Hopefully

I'll have wings,
and the gates

of hell will
be locked far below.

If any of you

get there early,
catch me if you can.

MFB III

MFB III seems "automatic" to me. I know that he has been "cultivated" for many years. His talents are talents but hey need work and nourishment!

So I have a couple of videos to honor his "automatic rapid fire" which has taken years and hard work- and talent!

Now ya'll git on over there to MFB III's place and check him out!

And -happy trails everybody!

How nice of you to display another hubber. I am a person that is not into poetry--I have seen him leave long long poetry on your comment pages--but I just never read it--just scrolled down--I have great difficulties with certain poetry-I will have to take a peek. The art he does is pretty cool. Very nice to do for someone Mickydee-he apparently has influenced you with maybe those pipes I see in the picture? LOL love ya! You are so good.

Thank you as always Ghost! He has so much to say. He says so much about God! He says so much about life! I'm just reporting the truth as it comes by. There are a couple links of his here that you would enjoy. But you would like them all I think! Thank you ma'am.

I am already hooked on this guy..... who is he, is it you Micky?????????


Micky Dee profile image

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

No, no, no. I pretend that I am MFB and 50 Caliber. Of course 50 Caliber and I are almost twins. Well- except that 50 Caliber is 6' 2" and I'm 5' 6". 50 is a omnivore/mostly carnivore. MFB is so much younger. Hairless. Shame really. He could be so much better looking!

When I grow up I want to be a clone of MFB and 50 Caliber!

No- seriously -MFB III is "his" own man and an artist that I envy! I'm not all these things:"Poet, artist, songwriter, guitarist, vocalist, actor, teacher, newspaper columnist. I have done artwork for the White House-during the Clinton era".

I own a guitar that I bought just to establish credit. I didn't establish credit and I didn't learn to play the guitar. I can sing. I sing to myself. Teacher? Come on! Newspaper columnist? I have sent newspapers "letters to the editors" that would not be printed. Nope! I would like to be more balanced as MFB is. Truthfully! Maybe when I grow up.

But Poetlorraine- you can meet me anytime and probably MFB to dispel any rumors. I don't reall know where MFB resides. I'm sure by some of his writing he has lived in FL. before. Maybe. Anyway. When I grow up- I want to be MFB! See-you and others are really "hooked on this guy". He's a real poet. I am a "pretender".

Thanks Poetlorraine.

I am nothing now but a pancake under your flattery. It is always nice to know that one is read and that others can comprehend the pain the joy, the agony and ecstacy of writing life thoughts. It makes me wish that I could write from the other side...death thoughts, and ease the fear and the confusions for others over all of our impending deaths, Perhaps I will give it a try, I think other poets have done this, I feel sometimes as if the poets of old channel their thoughts through me. Nevertheless, I thank you with all of my heart, soul and mind, my Brother-in-arms, bike riding, in your flaming orange and yellow lycra super hero costume, patrolling the country, as a poetic bearded wonder that you are. Always comfortable in a helmet I guess, Marine Corp and now a bicycle style of head gear.

I appreciate your kindness in this feature, and will have to do likewise for you in return. Kind of a Mickey D happy meal

for other minds to devour. Life is a shit sandwich and we seldom get any bread, but you have just made me a collossal sub full of the meat of compassion that I will savor for years to come. Semper Fi~~~MFB III

She is one of the wittiest and funniest people I know .. Don't forget the 2nd half of her saying ... I guess somebody's gotta live it... she states it with such gracious acceptance ... It's a riot when she says it. Yes she could be the 'female and softer version' of MickyDee. LOL

I just discovered this hub and I am very glad you paid tribute to one of the best poets on HP. I agree with every word you said and MFB is most deserving of your admiration and praise. He can’ possibly be III on anything so I intentionally left that part out.

His poetry has delighted me for a long time and I am amazed at his infinite resources and his limitless inspiration. It is a privilege to have him as a hubber and we don’t mind in the very least that he is casting a shadow over the rest of us. Better to live on the dust he leaves behind him than not be one of his followers.

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Amen Sister Petra! I second that emotion! I am constantly in awe of his knowledge akin to "been there, way back when but can recall it whenever I need it, but it's endlessly orderly or infinitely randomly the same and different..."

Well I'm not finished with my explanation but how can I not be wowed - over and over! Thanks Petra!
