OtiS LAEL wrote poems and songs and often performed at public gatherings. His deadpan delivery and unusual demeanor often had his audiences "cry laughing" in approval. Here is some of his prose, although merely reading these words does not compare with his live performances. Those of us who had the privilege to experience Otis Lael in person, shall not likely ever forget him.
