I Can Still Remember When the stove had no problems When the burners were stationary And the heat was consistent I Can Still Remember When the shower-heads didn't threaten to fall on you When the water was always pleasantly warm And the pipes didn't produce a high shrieking sound I Can Still Remember When the basement didn't contain such a large population of spiders When the cobwebs and clutter and dust were few And the carpet wasn't infested with centipedes I Can Still Remember When the front door opened easily When it didn't require such a force to wrench it open And the knob actually worked
I Can Still Remember When the house wasn't falling apart
I dreamt a wonderful dream last night, A dream so vivid, it almost was real I stood in a huge and beautiful field And screeched out a cry as down did I kneel This call would summon my means of flight
A griffin, so wild, so untamed and free Swiftly it sped its way down to my feet Its feathers and fur both silky to touch As I climbed on its back and held onto this seat The griffin turned back and then spoke to me
"My master," he said, "We now go to fly, We'll fly from this place and the people around," (At the moment some people came into the field) "These people would tie you and keep you to ground They want you to stay, but to stay is to die."
We launched off to air while the people did run, They grabbed at my legs--endeavored to pull But the griffin's wings beat them and caused them to fall We sped up to where all the hot air turned cool And then turned back down to escape from the sun
The thrill now of flying ran through me like fire, The speed and the height both combined to delight My griffin now swooped down and wheeled through the air, I felt down beneath all his muscles and might We'd escaped from the people--and now we flew higher
And just as thus far now the griffin had borne me, When a beautiful castle had come into sight (Which we doubtless had headed for and now had arrived) My eyes then were opened by shining sunlight The dream now had ended--and all by the sea.
If you look here and see, I haven't posted in quite some while. Sad the fate, but true I do hope you don't think I'm that vile But here it is, and here it shall remain, 'Dull as powder' and slightly rhyming, Is it's sad refrain
Today is the day of a birth date, of the United States of America dear. So we're getting ready to eat, (even though I just ate) We'll put up decorations, and sing the Nation's anthem loud and clear. Fireworks will fill the sky, as kids scream in fear Get togethers, parties, and more! HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE!
