    On a seasonal note!

    Talking Turkeys

    Turkeys are cool, turkeys are wicked

    An every turkey has a Mum.

    It could be yu mate, an not on your plate

    Say, Yo! Turkey I'm on your side.

    An all of dem fear christmas time,

    Dey wanna enjoy it, dey say humans destroyed it

    An humans are out of dere mind,

    Dey all hav a right to a life,

    Not to be caged up an genetically made up

    By any farmer an his wife.

    If I may paraphrase a poem (I say that because my memory of the words may be faulty)
    I believe it was anonymous when I read it. No idea of an author.

    Most of the night
    And most of the day
    I've been thinking of you
    Since you went on your way
    But in between throes
    When the pain is less acute
    I plan to start seeking
    A substitute
    hoarding time and space
    A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.

    Everyday,
    I think about dying.
    About disease, starvation,
    violence, terrorism, war,
    the end of the world.

    It helps
    keep my mind off things.

    I'm really not sure who this is by, but it certainly amused me with the inventive, witty simplicity of its take on the seven stages of life:



    Innocence?
    In a sense.
    In no sense.

    Was that IT?
    Was THAT it?
    WAS that it?

    That was it.
