Hello? Anybody out there?? I have avoided blogs ever since I first heard of them but I have been “called out” by a certain green-eyed devil, so I guess I’ll learn this new trick.
OK, so MAYBE I don’t look EXACTLY like Duke from Boondock Saints, but I feel like I’m pretty close. There are other resemblances. I once had a .sig file on my e-mail at work that read “Noted Kansas Crack-Pot and Crack-Shot– It pays to be one if you’re gonna be the other!” They felt it was too violent.
Since the Green-Eyed one cheated yesterday by putting in the video of “The Last Lecture”, I shall treat you to one of my favorite poems:
Ode to Drosiphillae
(or Beezelbub’s Children)
by Bill Sier
I despise flies!
I don’t need any hows or whys,
I just know I despise flies!
I don’t need any alibies;
Because EVERYone despises flies.
I hate their many thousand eyes!
I hate the way they fill the skies
‘Round sugar bowls, and fresh-baked pies!
I REALLY, REALLY DESPISE FLIES!!!
In fact, I would even surmise
That other FLIES despise flies!
This would come as no surprise!
In closing, let me summarize,
My salient point: I despise flies!

As one Phillistine/critic put it, “You had too much time on your hands in 1997. WAY too much time.” I think he was just jealous.
