I have no idea what this means, it just came to me while driving tonight...

Anarchist or Antichrist…you be the judge…


Have been called both,

I give you my oath,

If not for my growth,

My mind would be made of fudge…


I do choose the second,

I have been by Satan, beckoned,

For a longer period than I reckoned,

My mind is now made of chocolate sludge…


If though the first I do become,

I swear I will not to the other succumb,

But to all my chums, please don’t be glum,

I have every plan not to in any way budge…


To those of you who do not understand,

Please believe I have not this planned,

I do try my best with all due haste not to further expand,

For those of you who again do not understand, I hold no grudge…

I think you heard them wrong, sweetie pie... they probably said "Auntie" ... when you do your annual bathing, try cleaning the wax outta your ears. That should help. As far as anarchist? I can live with that... I'm not that fond of rules either... smile!

(Note to Rufuz: give your dad a big hug and smooch for me... he's a little delusional today.) byeeeeeeeeee katy xox.

Somehow, Ed, I just don't see you as the Antichrist. I don't think there is a mean bone in your body and you seem to derive no perverse pleasure from the suffering of others.then, of course, there is your love and caring for Rufuz. He would never stay beside an evil man. So it is decided and Anarchist it is!!
Take care,
