Wit when overreached
Is neither as endearing nor amusing
As the antics of a court jester;
But it is infinitely more foolish.
‘The greatest fools are ofttimes more clever than the men who laugh at them.’
- George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

My friend, I would sooner fear the reason why
I did not grasp an opportunity with both hands
And wring the very essence of life from it;
Than I would fear the opportunity itself.
Inspired by an old key chain I rediscovered today - the words 'through unlocked doors' are embossed on the back of it. I think I'll start using it again. :)
To imbue artistry with life invoke the multitude,
To imbue life with artistry invoke the muse.
Désolé, mon charmant ami,
but the future belongs to me.
Désolé, mon cher ami,
but today belongs to me.
You'll have to hear a whole lot before your ears fall of...
But not say a whole lot to get your teeth kicked in...
President Trump's conservative foes
reveal themselves as faux conservatives.

Everything if downside up was
Would then confused be we!
But wrote if sideback first was
Rhyme still be Poetry?
Sisyphus would hardly stop
even on the mountain's top.
