Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Sad shadows of our Mom still linger
ALong the wall behind the garden.
But her old sclerotic fingers
Fail her. God will never pardon
Those who for a real life seeking
Mother's grace and house abandon.
Into the world, their minds all creaking,
Seeking status without standing.
Come ye home, from busy cities
All your errors to confess
Rest upon her back porch settee
Home with Mom, and with BS.
