"One fine day in the middle of the night" (Journal Versions)

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight, or men
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other,
One was blind and the other couldn't, see
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"
A paralysed donkey passing by,
Kicked the blind man in the eye,
Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came to arrest the two dead boys,
If you don't believe this story’s true,
Ask the blind man he saw it too!

don't review too harshly!

favorite quotes:

by what may man within him hide through angel on the outward side-shakespeare

time will send me, but it can't mend me, as death is wakeless sleep- Wakeless Sleep, by Damnit Danie

"Ordering a man to write a poem is like commanding a pregnant woman to give birth to a red-headed child."
- Carl Sandburg

''Everywhere you look is inspiration, without it we wouldn't have anything to write.''-random idiocity.

" I thought poems were songs for people with bad voices."
- Lorna Dee Cervantes

"Poetry should be like fireworks, packed carefully and artfully, ready to explode with unpredictable effects."
-Lilian Moore

"The difference between the right and the nearly right word is the same as that between lightening and the lightening bug." - Mark Twain

The poem is a confession of faith." - Emerson

Talent is long on patience, and originality, an effort of will and of intense observation." – Flaubert

"But, the natural world is the old river than runs through everything, and I think poets will forever fish along its shores." - Mary Oliver, Poetry Handbook

“Hearts memory of sun grows fainter, sallow is the grass.” -Akhmatova (a Russian Poet)

there were people who lied for gain, people who lied from pain, people who lied because the concept of telling the truth was completely alien to them... and then there were people who lied because they were waiting for the right time to tell the truth. -Needful Things, Stephen King

“You must live not only for the mind, but for the senses. You have a body as well as a spirit. Don’t let that odious wren jail you with his daily babysitting. Don’t crush yourself any longer. Live. Travel. Love. Speak the languages you’ve learned. Experience the world directly, and not through the musty pages of a book. Live in color, not in black and white.” -Diogenes Pendergast, The Book of the Dead by: Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.

The most important kind of freedom is the freedom to be who you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for a act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on as mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s personal revolution, on the individual level. It’s got to happen on the inside first. You can take away a man’s political freedom and you won’t hurt him- unless you take away his freedom to feel; that can destroy him. That kind of freedom can’t be granted. Nobody can win it for you. - Jim Morrison

“It is by the fortune of God that, in this country, we have three benefits: freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and the wisdom never to use either.” – Mark Twain

Freedom lies in being bold – Robert Frost

it is always so; those closest to the heart cause the most pain - Sloan, Eldest, by Christopher Paolini

Poetryis not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. -T.S. Eliot

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. -Robert Frost

i knew it from the moment i saw her...i loved her...as i loved her that fateful day on the ridge...i love her, and all the world will be sweeter indeed if i may hold her in my arms and feel her soft breath against my neck.- Elbryan Wyndon, The Demon Awakens, By R.A. Salvatore

Destiny, meet world. World, meet destiny. From the movie Core

life isn't about living fully, it's about fully living.-Unknown

They have wanted to be popular to. They have tried to be someone other than themselves, because they don’t think their “friends” will accept their crazy side. Out there, you can be whoever you want to be. And when you get home, you realized that you don’t ever have to be anyone but yourself. Because, you are a unique, talented person. Being different is not a problem; being the same is. You should be the only you, not one of the million “hers” or “hims.” A little nameless lake out in Canada may be the best place to find out who you really are.-CANOESROCK

between the idea and the reality, between the motion and the act, falls the shadow-Unknown

Doesn't matter what brings a person, only what they leave with-Unknown

procrastination is the thief of time.-Edward Young

everyone ends up in certain places and in certain situations, right? sometimes there is a reason it happens, as if the world pushes you into doing certain things or being in paticular places at paticular times.-The Star Tablet, By Jay Caselberg
