    Post canal and pre internment existence is spent horizontally at risk of fecal infection,
    But it’s the **** you do in-between this **** that determines your worth
    It is actions and reactions
    Not perceived or acclaimed importance that will give peaceful rest when day is done
    It will not be the adorning masses that will wipe your latter parts once sun is set
    And if money fame and fortune be you’re in between know that they will make themselves scarce in the end
    Of the three
    money may be the most enduring companion, but even its comfort is suspect when its distribution fails to beguile the thinly veiled insincerity of its beneficiaries

    deep deeep

    but do they get it
    reminds of a piece i wrote Virtual Sandbox, and why does Destee censor your work those *********s are irritatiing, it takes away from your work i think
    with all the stuff going out there now days a few words won't hurt anyone.

    especially when in the context like yours that are dropping Mental A-bombs

    i think you should put this piece in the African Sayings, Thoughts, etc..
    as well as keeping it in here (definitely keep in here)
    but the thought provoking words would be wonderful in Open Forumn..another truth, idea for all to think on....
    i like....
    nicely done...nicely

    if you can find that piece, post it to mine so I can find it. and about the ***** it might have something to do with that supper bowl thing fall out because it didn't seem like they used to be so sensitive. good to hear from you again old friend.
