at home with ann

Archive for August 11th, 2006

I died in sin and forthwith went to Hell;
I made myself at home upon the coals
Where seas of flame break on the cinder shoals.
Till Satan came and said with angry yell,
“You there – divulge what route by which you fell.”
“I spent my youth among the flowing bowls,
“Wasted my life with women of dark souls,
“Died brothel-fighting – drunk on muscatel.”Said he, “My friend, you’ve been directed wrong:
“You’ve naught to recommend you for our feasts –
“Like factory owners, brokers, elders, priests;
“The air for you! This place is for the strong!”
Then as I pondered, minded to rebel,
He laughed and forthwith kicked me out of Hell.

I owe everyone an apology. I have withdrawn the previous post as Finn pointed out to me it was fake… I was duped… doh! Thank you anyway for the comments although I have to endorse the sentiments of the author, one Ben Caspit a journalist writing for the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv. This was his suggested speech for Ehud Olmert and it has been circulating cyberspace and fooling everybody.

In the meantime, it’s Friday so here are pics of my offspring’s offspring and I’ll be with them in just over three weeks time… hooray.

For anyone interested, the next chapter of mrsbg is out on and London-Love has posted a poem of Robert E Howard’s I am really taken with his awesome writing.

Wishing you all a happy and peaceful weekend with loved ones (mother’s coming to stay, so I have to say that and I do love her) and Shabbat Shalom.

the loves of my life

at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet ~~~ plato
