Rating: 4.8

Yesterday, I lay awake in the palm of the night.

A soft rain stole in, unhelped by any breeze,

And when I saw the silver glaze on the windows,

You were only touched when you read the dedication, for the poem by itself makes no sense at all. So the poem cannot touch anyone. Why can't he work the event into the poem? All we get is pretty little pictures, like doilies and Precious Moments figurines in an old lady's China cabinet. Sugar and saccharine.

Why so many odd images? Names in the small tracks of birds! What? No, Billy. Try this: I will seek Aaron and find out how he took his coffee and what side of the bed he slept on. Did he throw righty? And if I do this from A to Z, I will drag my finiteness home, sweating and bedraggled, certain for the first time in my life that I am not God. Go big, Billy, or don't go at all!

Saitama will become Evil in order to create a hero strong enough to give him a challenge and ultimately defeat him which will make him happy just after he fubuki and tatsumaki in a threesome. And gives Genos sloppy seconds oh wait Genos has no.
