"'If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight.' Sun Tzu said that. And I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it. Then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honour. Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth. And then he herded them onto a boat. And then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo!


. . . unless it's a farm!" ~ Soldier (TF2)


A train wakes up
The whistle blows
But its destination
Nobody knows
And as the train
So is this passage
For from its name
Is derived the message

From this backwards organization
Comes much challenge and agitation
For customary it is to think
Of a title after composing a speech

But onward it treks
The train on its tracks
Through blistering winds
It fiercely attacks
Pressing on
Toward the unknown
It blazes a trail
And creates a poem

From this backwards organization
Comes much challenge and agitation
For customary it is to think
Of a title after composing a speech
