Very Inspiring Stuff


Where are you going?

'To the debates.'

I thought you stayed away from politics?

'That was yesterday.
Before I decided I would get into comedy.
Yesterday...
One of the debaters accused the other,
Of being a 'Capitalist'.
Because he actually stated...
He had 'no' lack of fear of cutting jobs,
To aid big business.
And...
Just a week ago they were all accusing,
The current leader for being a 'Socialist'.
With claims he was against 'Capitalism'.'

That's nuts.

'No.
That's politics.
I wish I had known earlier in my career,
It was this funny.
I am getting some great material.
Very inspiring stuff.'

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
