Martin C. Mayer is a lifelong resident of the Garden State who migrated several years ago to Florida after spending sixteen years as a "snowbird" and maintaining residences in both states. He spends much of his retirement time churning out what he perceives to be socially redeeming opuses, most of them in the form of odes and limericks. His previous works include "POETRY OF MIDLIFE CRISES", a product of early retirement and "THE RECITED SPATES OF LIMERICKA", a collection of original humorous and social commentary limericks. Mr. Mayer lives in Palm Beach, Florida, is married and is the father to five children. He holds B.A. and J. D. degrees from Columbia University.
