Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
At 29 and two-six-five
The MOAB thread was still alive.
Her pulse was weak, her visage pale,
Her smile was forced, her thoughts were stale,
Her pals had wandered here, and yon,
A threadbare muumuu had she on;
She rambled, uncomposed in mind,
And pallid were all vital signs.
But still to answer she did strive,
By God, our Mom was still alive.
And as I held her hand and prayed,
I heard her mumble, pause and say,
PRESS ON! And reach that Thirty Kay!!
And then fell back, to catch her breath,
And once more fend off looming Death,
ANd rest, and catch her breath awhile;
But through it all, a flickering smile
Made me believe I'd see the day
When Mom slid home to Thirty Kay!
