Favorite Quote:
Two woods diverge in a yellow wood, and I- I took the one less traveled. And it has made all the difference. -Robert Frost


Hollow hollow hollow
Fell the sounds of drip drip drip
Upon the ceiling wall cascading down into
The minds of the infidels.


Strip strip strip
Came the paint off of their faces
As their white cloaks hung stained with red
From an honest nights work


Plight plight plight,
Came up on them as the grave they had slowly been digging
And the light light light
Shall shine upon them no more.


Slowly, eerie, as an aberration,
XXX was written across all of their graves.
No grace was given to thee
Of those who slew upon his name.


The author's comments:
This poem was inspired while writing my history speech about something totally unrelated to the KKK, which is what this poem is about. But generally, whenever I do anything for history, I always think of the Klu Klux Klan.
