Did he really say that?

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes = GEORGE CARLIN...Stained glass, engraved glass, frosted glass–give me plain glass = JOHN FOWLES...Music is the mathematics of the gods = PYTHAGORAS...Nothing is more fluid than language = R.L.SWIHART

Dawning For The King of Squirrels

Mosquitos take place of riveteers
And carry switchblades.
Black flies carry extra
Sets of chompers and
Slug you with their
Back feet in roller skates
So beauteous walks a hazard...
The strange fruitflies from
California who play
Guitars badly and bend ears...
Reduced to riding into town
For the great purpose of
Getting peanuts for the
King of Squirrels...
Chorus men pogo in on
Retirement pensions
Dragging little red wagons
With broken pride
- Dawn Powell
