No Place Safe to Stand

~~~~~ If you find something’s wrong don’t cast about looking for a reason I’m the one to libel, always, I must honestly admit, this or any season You think you’re wrong, you’re incorrect, I’ll swear an oath I did it From simple misspelled words to atom bombs, for all I will take credit The argument […]

Jabberwacky

                  Guardians of Evil ~ Philip Brent Harris                ~~~~~ Twas chilling and the slimy toads Did mire and gamble on the wave.
