Favorite Quote:
One sure way to identify an honest writer: ask them if something (anything) they've ever written is finished. If they say yes, they're LYING!


Water rises all around,,
A deep and dark and dirty brown,
The rivers have all jumped their banks,
The forests have all broken ranks,
The creatures flee to higher ground,
As water rises all around.

Water rises all around,
With a quiet, deadly rushing sound,
Streets lie empty, dark and bare,
It seems the people no longer care,
They also flee to higher ground,
As water rises all around.

Water rises all around,
Seeking ever-higher ground,
Rising, rushing, ever feeding,
It doesn't care who it sends reeling,
It reaches for ever-higher ground,
Rising, rising, all around.

Water rises all around,
A deep and dark and dirty brown,
With a quiet, deadly rushing sound,
Seeking ever higher ground,
Rising, rising, all around,
Water rises all around.
