Flames taste not of roasted chestnuts in the Alley
Of peace but the stench of hatred fills the air.

Rather than the given shows disrespect,—

Premium Member What's In My Name

a juicy great steak –...Read More

Amidst these inlets and islands
Lies a land of a patriot nation
Where clans decree their might
Together in mixed relation

Family names of a forgotten past
Deliver us to their present
For these surnames are here to last
