Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
How strange the night, oh wan the hour,
That sees no bloom or bursting flower
Here on the thread, which 'til this day
Was ever thrown aloft, in play;
And now, like some betrayed companion
SInks to the lowest Mudcat canyon,
And waves the clouds and sly farewell,
As Mom approaches Drop Off Hell.
Oh, no! Good friends, let i'ne'er be so!
Your hearts and minds to Mother show,
And turn your wits to work, and then,
Loving and laughing raise her up again.
