Book Stores and the Magic Ate Ball

'It's a beautiful day today...'
'Yes it is...'
'I see you're in a book store... You must like to read books...'
'Yes I do...'
'So do I... What's that you're reading? ...'
'Oh, it's nothing... Just light reading...'
'I come here a lot... Do you come here a lot too? ...'
'Yes I do... They have a nice cafe... The book selection isn't too good...'
'I agree... And I come here for the coffee too...'
'So I see you're dressed nicely... What do you do? ...'
Courtship in the Age of
Form, fit and function.
Now the answer to the question of
Who we are in this Great Age:
'Well, today I ate,
Later I'll defecate,
If I'm fortunate then later I'll fornicate,
But my long term plans are to propagate.'

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
