Treasure Island

Barry Van Allen


1 / 10,000th of One percent is all that it would take!


You just got surprised:
Oh! . My God!
Oh! , My God!
Oh! , My God!

Something Bad just Happened:
Oh! , My God!
Oh! , My God!
Oh! , My God!

It Is the most Amazing Thing:
Oh! , My God!
Oh! , My God!
Oh! , My God!

WOW! , could be a substitute!
Almost anything could work!
If you would just engage the brain first!

Oh! , My God!
- - - what was I thinking!

1 tenth of 1 % just seems too much.

    I'm dyslexic, so I usually say 'Oh! . My Dog! '. But why should that be any less valid? - chuck (Report) Reply

    how true...even more true when you visit a high school! teenagers especially seem to be perpetually stuck in phrases that, while not varied, are very versatile. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson
