Its here,

Don’t be a’feared,

You can’t be harmed,

If though you can’t grow a beard,

Find yourself a place to live on a farm…


Orwell’s ‘84 is well past,

The mold for ‘07 is quite well cast,

A chance for us to do anything about it has passed,

Hopefully we are not in the way when the big one does blast…


Is it paranoia or sensibility,

The world has a great deal of volatility,

Hopefully before ’08 we do not see much hostility,

I sincerely doubt we will ever see any to anyone civility…

2007 always will be a memorable one for me. Lost my 2nd husband whom I loved very much. Up to God he went and is waiting at the pearly gates for me when my time is up. Sad but true.

I'm doing both, and you better, too, Bro.

Good one ED. Let's hope not. Hostility breeds futility.
