Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
And would it have been worth it, after all,        
Would it have been worth while,              
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,        
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floorÑ        
And this, and so much more?Ñ        
It is impossible to say just what IS BS!        
But as if a magic lantern threw the nerves in patterns on a thread:                 
Would it have been worth while        
If one, settling a pillow or throwing off a shawl,        
And turning toward the window, said with shaking head,
ÒThat is not BS at all,        
That is not what I call BS, at all.Ó
