Cursed be the Night

Cursed be the night... O' bloody night... Thy face is cold and dead... Thy eyes are of blackness, and thy cape wicked.... And the world is thy bed... Thou sleepest during the day and cause death in the dark... The fire that consumed her was caused by thy breath... Within it, a single spark... So I curse thee, o' dreadful night... I curse thee til the mornings' sweet light...

Yes the night...most that is bad seems to happen during the night...if you are sick the night seems to be the worse. Congrats on your big win Darrell. One love. Joy Wells

Thanks... Some of these people like, and others, not so much... This one may be one of the latter... :)
