The Monday Corner 02/01/2010

In the darkness there exists a man.
A man whose world in light began.

He dreams of rivers, he dreams of blue.
He hopes the world we dream him too.

Yet, Noone sees this forgotten man.
His world lost in an unloved hand.

Alas, pitty not this endarkend man.
For he sees the world like so few can.

For your Consideration:
Hey what are you doing with my lollipop!? It's mine I tell you! MINE!!!!!

2. 7 votes: Against
3. 2 votes: Indifferent
4. 0 votes: Always a Supporter
