Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Left my vorpal blade out in the rain,
And it rusted 'til I can't use it again
And I don't think I can take it
'Cause it took so long to make it
And the Elvin smith won't work for me agaiiin!
Oh, noooooooo!

The gods decree the man who battles,
Takes his stand and roars and rattles,
Takes what he has and stands for truth,
Fights on for justice, gilt and sooth,
Shall be rewarded life composed
Full free of ruth, and warm of toes
And by his heart-full use of Self
Shall gain composure, and good pelf.
While he who far from struggle bends
And to assert his truth forfends,
Shall slowly --as he condescends --
Succumb to spiritual bends
And like some sanctimonious Hessian
Be all undone by decompression,
And on the heights, shall fall in flight,
Because, when low, he would not fight.
