#A Wish that couln't be granted...


Joyous and ecstatic,
On the banks of
Mother Ganges,
I didn’t want to look
Over my shoulder,
And wished time
Could stand still,

And with the imprint
Of that moment,
I could just die…
But that is not in
The scheme of things…

For I knew better,
Pain waited in the aisle
With a benign smile…

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
