Who is Roger W Hancock? Who
is the PoetPatriot? How did the PoetPatriot begin? Some have
mistakenly thought He was a veteran while some reading his poems
assumed he was a founding father. Roger W Hancock lives today as
nephew of John M Hancock and father of John W Hancock. Those who
mistakenly think him a founding father are actually remembering
Roger Sherman and John Hancock, both signers of the Declaration
of Independence. Many have assumed, after reading his poetry,
that Hancock is a veteran. He is not. So who is Roger W Hancock?
… and why is he the PoetPatriot?
Roger W Hancock began to write 'letters to the editor' in 1999.
Hancock received compliments from family and friends encouraging
him to write more. Roger would continue writing eventually
having more than 80 ‘letters’ published in papers locally and
across America. A few months after the first ‘letter’ Hancock
wrote a poem "Life Abounds in Nature's Sound," Working on that
poem, over three months time, he felt he had a fairly good poem.
Having received some positive feedback he began to write more.
His first poems were of his faith but he quickly began writing
poetry of his love for America. Having written several patriotic
and flag poems he decided upon ‘PoetPatriot’ as an internet
handle. (“PoetPatriot” is one word with both ‘P’s capitalized to
differentiate him from the poet patriots around the world and
throughout history.) Changing his fledgling website he bought
the Internet domain of PoetPatriot.com.
Roger Hancock began to
compile his patriotic poetry on handouts with 10 to 12 poems on
a page. He would pass them out at political and other community
events. Roger would write on other subjects as well as other
forms of poetry. Hancock has posted most of his poems at his
Roger is not a Veteran.
Roger W Hancock is an American Poet who has written many poems
to honor the military and veterans, living or now past. Many
having read his poems make the erroneous assumption that Roger
must be a veteran. Hancock maintains that he has not paid any of
the prices one does when serving in the military, whatever their
capacity. Hancock knows that his liberty to write and speak out
his personal agenda, was by the sacrifice of others. He
appreciates his freedom, created by our first veterans and
maintained through the years by our veterans and those in the
You can find Haiku, Lune,
Clerihew, and children’s rhymes he calls “Roger’s Rhymes.” He
has written rhymes on several subjects including patriotism.
Hancock has written rhymes of many of our Founding Fathers, as
well as the little celebrated Black, Women and Child patriots of the
American Revolutionary War. He began to call those works,
“Roger’s Rhymes of Liberty.”
Along the way, Hancock
began to research compiling information to create original
content for his website. He has one of the largest collections
of ‘one vote occurrences’ on the internet. Forming them into
timelines he began to call them and others his “TimeLines of
Liberty.” Hancock has timelines for America, our flag,
Presidents, and even the presidents before George Washington.
His TimeLines have been used by students across America. During
the research for his TimeLines Roger wrote the poem “Liberty
Ride of Dawes, Revere.” That poem, although inspired by, is
more accurate than the “Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” by Henry
Although Roger maintains he
has not paid any of the prices paid by those who serve in the
military, many veterans have expressed that writing the poems
about veterans is serving. Hancock appreciates the sentiment but
will not claim the honors. The honor goes to those who serve
protecting our liberties.
Roger W Hancock is an
American Poet Patriot. He is the PoetPatrot (both words
capitalized together as one word.) Literally thousands of people
have read Roger’s poetry. His reputation as the PoetPatriot is
gaining as more people find the works of Roger W Hancock. Even
some who have not liked poetry have enjoyed those by the
PoetPatriot, Roger W Hancock. Though he has not served, Hancock
feels it is our duty to honor our country and those that keep
