Get, Got, Gotten.


When it rains
It washes away
What’s wet and what
The wetness stained
And drowns what came
To cause me pain
And keep me up
All night and day
And possibly take
My life away
19 horses and 19 men
Knocking on my window pane
And when it rains
It tells the day
No one can come out to play
And that makes the sun say
“I must now dry up the day
And save whats left to be saved”.
And when I look
I have to say
That what I see I can’t explain
What was flooded yesterday
Is now completely drained
And when I say
The sun has came
To shine its rays
On my troubled face
And liven what relentless rain
Had no remorse and washed away
-19 horses and 19 men
Knocking on my window pane.

this poem is about misconceptions, and how us being the paranoid freaks that we are, assume people are out to get us when really all they want is to get out of the rain.

It's true!  It's really stupid that people still make a big deal about it since it ended.  It's wrong.  Gosh.

After reading the comment on the billboard, bydrivers said in disbelief, "he can't really be serious can he?"

Geeze, there's just no pleasing you, person-who-I-will-from-now-on-call-the creepy smiley Teeninker.

What kind of cookies do you like?

On another note, HP!!! (And I don't mean Hewlett Packard.)

There's a mighty big difference in one hundred years than thirty seconds.  And I live in Indiana.  Last time I checked, it was in 2010, not 1810.

yeah, that was some cookie, you do realize that if the previous "dialogue" was copied and pasted in between your customer/salesman response...you would not sell your cookie.

Fine, I'll remodel my cookie <Pouts>

How about a rainbow hazelnut delight? Or a gluten free ginger snap? (Despite the name, they're actually quite scrumptious :)

<Done with pouting as she scarfs down some of her super-cali-fragilistic-expea-ali-docias cookies> =D

Oh, and thank you ever-so-much, Dreamwriter! :) Have a cookie?

Again, why should that matter, that was over a hundred year ago, right?  Racism shouldn't be in schools, it's petty and wrong.
