It was September 
Of one thousand

With apples lying thickly
Under the apple trees
And the smell of Autumn

Sitting on the relaxing throne of my age
Reminiscing what I went through in life

Premium Member When MultiCulturally Presiding
As no one
never said
about nothing,

Christian-Royalist monotheistic supremacy
over educational
and development systems
