Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
An ode to wax and hemp and flax
And other handy makings
That let you face chaotic times
With spirit never breaking.
To steel and oak and string and cream
To bleach and angostura!
WHen things are wrong in how they seem
These goodies reassureya!
To gas and plastic, stone and clay
And a hundred thoudand others;
We need the things of earth each day
More than we need our mothers.
