silhouette, a saboteur of my spirit as
I reminisce with a sad and heavy heart
looking at your profile, stern and angular,
hunting for signs of gentleness and goodwill

eternal love rewards those who seek it
tears of joy or tears of sadness, no matter

You’re at BrewNSpew Cafe, where friends meet
RANDOM MUSINGS ON LIFE, SOCIETY, AND POLITICS.
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Fandango, which, for the purpose of this blog, is my pseudonym. My real world identity will remain a mystery.
So I’m Fandango, but not as in the Fandango app that you use to check show times and to purchase movie tickets. Oh no. I’m Fandango, for those of you who are Queen fans, as made infamous by the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody…
