Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I too, rose before the sun,
And shortly, had my work begun.
And firmly turned my aching back
On pillows soft at dawn's first crack.
But started on my labors dirty
While still the clock read Oh-Gawd-thirty.
And now, although tis barely noon.
I have my instruments well-tuned
And filled the car and shopped for food,
And written something fairly good.
And as my afternoon's near free,
Except for someone phoning me,
I do expect my luck to bide,
To go to bed full satisfied
And picking dream-made gentle flowers,
Reflect upon productive hours.
