Tuning the forks of time
Life’s not a straight line
Drunken words don’t rhyme
Let this roll around in your mouth
Before the crow flies south
Let your pen do the talking
Send insipidity walking
Make sure life begins
before it comes to an end
In our soda pop world, we blunder
Scattered ideas tore asunder
“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
― George Orwell,
