Friends, Romans, Countrymen,

Lend me your ears, for I have a tale to tell. 

Of quirks and quacks and verbal attacks

Of beaches, boats and shells.

 

Of meanderings by moonlight, 

Of the lonely sea and sky

Of forest ponds and fairies’ wands

And actors paid to lie.

 

Of the towering blocks of skyscrapers

And the little men they hide

Of smash, of bash, and lots of cash,

And their racks and racks of ties.

 

Of those who fly the rainbow, 

Of those who would not be told

Of wrong, of right, of pointless fights,

That were in some book of old.

 

Of those who told their story,

Of those who fought their fight,

Not with swords and guns but barbs and puns

And earned freedom in their own right.

 

For all the women whose skirts were too short

For the men who frightened the rest

For the gays, the girls, and the 99%

Let me put these matters to rest

  1. I’m extremely inspired with your writing skills and also with the format to your weblog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great weblog like this one these days..

    • Thank you kindly. A scribbler is always glad to see her work appreciated. I shall attempt to remain so :). I customized the setup myself: just found a couple of images to use.
