Doubt that the stars are fire

Doubt that the stars are fire
Doubt that the sun doth shine
Doubt that truth be a liar
But never doubt that I love.

Someday someday this crazy world will have to end

Someday someday this crazy world will have to end, and our God will take things back that to us he did lend, And if on that sad day you wish to scold our God, Then go ahead and scold him, He'll simply smile and nod. -- Kurt Vonnegut jr. Cat's cradle

Its a ling road to happiness

Its a ling road to happiness,
a winding far and high,
But when you walk in love
with the wind in your wings,
and cover the earth with the songs you sing,
the miles fly by.

One perfect rose

Why is it that no one ever sent me yet One perfect limousine, do you suppose? Ah no, it's always just my luck to get One perfect rose. -- Dorothy Parker, One Perfect Rose

A violet by a mossy stone

A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye;
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.
-- Wordsworth

Footfalls echo in the memory

Footfalls echo in the memory Down the passage which we did not take Towards the door we never opened.... -- T.S. Elliot

Woman wants monogamy

Woman wants monogamy;
Man delights in novelty.
Love is woman's moon and sun;
Man has other forms of fun.
Woman lives but in her lord;
Count to ten and man is bored.
-- Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)

The years to come seemed waste of breath

The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.
-- last lines of Yeats' "An Irish Airman Foresees His Death" (1919)

All my friends are getting married

All my friends are getting married, Yes, they're all growing old, They're all staying home on the weekend, They're all doing what they're told.

Lewd limericks

A bather whose clothing was strewed
By breezes that left her quite nude,
Saw a man come along
And, unless I'm quite wrong,
You expected this line to be lewd.

A mathematician named Hall
Has a hexahedronical ball,
And the cube of its weight
Times his pecker's, plus eight
Is his phone number -- give him a call..

A pretty young maiden from France
Decided she'd "just take a chance."
She let herself go
For an hour or so
And now all her sisters are aunts.

A worried young man from Stamboul
Founds lots of red spots on his tool.
