who bragged of his prowess, but lied.
To his new wife he sighed,

Clink clink clink clink...
Test tubes prattling past
along the chrome plated production line.
Glistening under fake fluorescence
humming in harmony
with the magnetic motors
of conveyors, centrifuges and camshafts.

That's handed down through time
But couldn't be, as you will see
For this strange tale is mine.

The Night Before Christmas By Edgar Allan Poe
On the night before Christmas, alone in my house, 
Sorrow gnawed at my soul, like a ravenous mouse.
Entombed in my blankets, I struggled to sleep,
Ready to snap if I counted more sheep.

I rose at the...

Premium Member ReCounting Wounding Costs
I know what it costs
to parent a tyrant

to feel even the...
