Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
That ever mind I have today
Is not the ever mind I had.
Back then, when I was twenty-five
And every hour felt alive,
And I'd ignore what folks would say
And keep on being bad.

The ever mind I carry now
Is wiser, true, but seems less bright,
With laughter, energy and wit
But somehow, I put up with it.
I really don't quite fathom how
I stand it in this long twilight.

But ever mind goes ever on,
The thoughts of now, to be, and then,
Are not as firmly separate
As people have believed of late,
And any ever mind now gone,
Can by the ever-soul be thought again.
