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.

I, just like PinkyPromise, rather insanely enjoyed this conversation.

Thanks for entertaining the trickle :)

Ah yes, dear old Catmaron, I will remember it fondly (It didn't seem to have any humanly recgnizable gender.) It's passing was peaceful, swift, and brave. I will remember Carmaron fondly, and with sorrow at it's death.

 

I had considered starting a riot at first, but those things just never seem to work out. I also thought of peaceful protest, but that decayed old squash of a king would have just lobbed a firebomb into the midst of a peaceful protest all the same.

This way we have the upperhand.

<Watchout!!! There's a monstrous hobnob stinkbomb headed your way!>

Never mind.

Anyway, how is your pet pewter slug, Hilda? I had heard that she had a spot of dropsy a couple of weeks ago, is she over that yet?

If I get an F in highschool, they'll just take me out and continue homeschooling me like they were before, and make SURE I don't get F's.

i dont know captain. i dont know how that sounds but if you say thats a good thing i'll take your word for it. your parents would kick you out of school for getting an f? what sense does that make? what does that even mean?how can they punish you by making you do what you were already doing wrong in the first place?

Hahey, we got SECOND out of THREE in our class this week in Marching Band!  How awesome is that??  And, no, I don't think my parents would tolerate F's.  They'd probably kick me out of school.  I've never gotten one before.
