THIS IS NOT A POEM - I LIED!

WHY? BECAUSE MORE PEOPLE HERE READ MORE POETRY THAN OTHER STUFF!

HUMOR? OR HORROR? OR BOTH?

YOU DECIDE!

OH! THE PIC? REAR VIEW OF MT. RUSHMORE!





ARCHAIC APHORISMS

© - Tom Hyland - 01-29-09

A Bird in the Hand is better than a WMD hidden in a BUSH!

If at First you donít Succeed, have your Brother Rig the Election Returns!

Donít like the Constitution? Change it - by Executive Order!

Habeas Corpus? Whatís that? I donít know no Latin!



My English ainít real good either! Valedictorian Iím not!

Blood for Oil? You got to be Kiddiní - Right?

Haliburton does What? For How Much? WOW! I didnít know that!

Tell me again - Dick, you SHOT Who?



Yeah? Well, my Dad didnít get Him - I Did! So There!

Screw the Geneva Convention! Itís NOT Torture!

I had FUN when I was a ĎFly Boyí in the Air Force Reserves - When I WENT!

Management Skills? Just look at My Oil Companiesí Failures!



The History Book will Prove I was Right - the One I Write!

A Cherubic Smile and a ďS**t-Eatiní GrinĒ - what more does a C-I-C need?

Civilian Casualties? OOPS! Thatís just Collateral Damages!

Electricity in Baghdad? Heck, weíve only been workiní on it for FIVE Years!



MY CLAIM TO FAME?

CRAIG FERGUSONíS PRESIDENTIAL QUOTES!



ARCHAIC - no longer useful or efficient.

APHORISM - a succinct statement expressing
An opinion or a general truth.

I don't know all your strange words Tom, yet I understood every one of them ha, sort of lyrical, sort of music to my ears, sort of the truth, poetry to me. Bless You! Jasmin Horst

Just try saying "archaic aphorism" ten times without stopping. It will come close to listening to a #43 speech.

Cheers and Peace,
Dan
