TOWERING MONUMENTAL VERSE

I1AUG2003
FOR NO GIRL
Having a wild weekend?
Call me collect!
I'm so there!
In a dust-choked lung-like place and day
We had time.
We were wasted.
The Killing Times.
I check my "e"
Ten years later.
One word from yourself:
"Timeless."
I'm not so sure of that, babe.
"Time-ridden" more like, or "Neverness."

My actual rejoinder:
"Give the 'e' a rest. Buy a stamp."
That was ten years ago.
Signed, Your Time-Wracked Chronologer.

A BARRAGE OF KINDNESS
How UNSTOPPABLE would UNITED STATES be if the ANSWER was ALWAYS YES?
Need CRACK COCAINE? "Here YOU go! GOVERNMENT-INSPECTED and SUBSIDIZED!"
"I don't have any MONEY. I don't want to WORK."
"Here's a ROOM! Here's your FOODSTAMPS! Here's your MAD MONEY!
And incidentally, your REFUSING WORK just CREATED a NEW GOVERNMENT JOB!
THANK YOU for being YOU, MISTER OR MIZ JOHN/JANE DOE!"
And on. Yes. And on.
