The Hucksters

cool sharp fun racy
professionally packaged
but is it toasted?

North and South: A Duet

Margaret:
I detest the north!
lonely dirty wilderness
harsh is my exile

Thornton:
who dares scorn the north?
ye know not of what ye speak
(I think I love you)

Margaret:
gracious, a tradesman!
I am far, far above you
worship in despair

Thornton:
damn, I do love you!
make a heroic gesture
break my heart anon

Margaret:
done and done, Fido
though you attract me, alas
I cannot give in

Thornton:
misfortunes plague us!
cannot you admit your love
thus reconcile us?

Margaret:
more pain must we feel
a deus ex machina
will then unite us

Thornton:
speak! lest I claim you
in some presumptuous way!
(yes, I mean kissing)

Margaret:
I am unworthy!
how great was my arrogance
I tremble with shame

Thornton:
hush! no more of this
we are properly humbled
let our joy commence

Margaret:
yes, indeed, let it!
though my family will sneer
and your mom hates me

Beatles Marathon

In My Life
Must. Not. Get. Choked. Up.
must not must not must- oh hell
here we go *chokes up*

Abbey Road
they amble across
the world is changed forever
but where are Paul's shoes

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
how does Desmond feel
about Moll's empowerment?
a little giddy?

Modest Requests

Dorothy Shaw
tall, dark, handsome man
who runs faster than I can
would make me happy

Lorelei Lee
wealthy gentleman
with a sweet disposition
thank you ever so

This Year is Going to Be Great

resolutions: none
really I am not kidding
behold: defiance
