Favorite Quote:
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
Mark Twain

"Tsk, tsk," went the tonges As they went laughing down the lane.
A boy with a girl and not the other way.
The man with the tie, it's the color of the sky.
The lady with the dress who runs around with stress.

"La, La" Went the lovers as they went walking down the aisle.
A priest or a minister, it could go either way.
The man with his wimple, his poor sight like a pimple.
The girl with the flowers, waiting in the tower.

"Ding, Dong" Went the bells as she went throwing back the flowers.
A wife with her husband everything turned out OK.
The Woman with her ring, followed closely by her king.
The Man with the love, floating up above.

"Bang!" "Bang!" went the guns they went driving down the road.
The husband and the wife, dead on this day.

The author's comments:
This poem has a really strange rhythm, but if you read all the verses, you'll be able to pick up on the beat. Not by best piece, but it's a fun one.
