3.28.09 From William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience:


Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.
If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die.

3.21.09 Ove had a gut implant so that most of the other middle-aged guys wouldn't hate him:

My trousers will no longer FIT on me.
I'm relieved that young females won't HIT on me.
This belly enhancement
And brand new enpantsment
Stopped bullies from wanting to SIT on me.
