Love how you turned it around and made the swan story as we know it at the end. Nice example for your contest, charles.

I was just going to do four lines when I tried this. You don't mind people doing multiple verses?

Charlie, this is amazing and a great example for your contest and true 'cause those babies are ugly at birth but then one day transform to the SWAN, I am going to start working on mine right after my two dance classes today - I like your Charlie-Quadku, Charlie !
