Letter to a Yankee (NO comments on the title allowed :-D)

To whom it may concern,

Blood runs through your hands
as money runs to you.
The stain of a million beings,
of a land once living,
enshrouds you soul.

You come for what's here
and change what you see,
and don't care 'bout a poor
cracker boy like me.

You tell us what to do,
you tell us what to say,
and we let you;
that's just our way.

We respect who you are,
we accept what you want,
and you thank us by
ripping out our Heart.

We don't mind you coming
here,
we love to share the joy,
just leave us to our ways,
and listen to a boy.

Sincerely,
A Pissed-off Floridian

I'm guessing you rode by the latest development scar and got inspired.

Hurricane Teen said...

Close. I was inspired by a rather ignorant person I talked to a while back. If you look at it from that standpoint, you can really get more from this letter.

Verification Code: tsbich
A little close to a bad word, eh?

That is dangerously close to a very bad word, tisch. Yikes. Bad memories bad memories. Screams in terror. HELP!! lol. And I won't say anything about the title, though I really want to.

ha ha, paint. I just love to torture you :-D How's the new calf?

Paintsmh said...

SHe's good. Really cute. I'd post picture of her, but we don't have the new computer set up to take photos from the camera yet.

I am going to try to put a picture of the new baby up. That is if blogger will cooperate. No guarantees, but it should be up soon...I hope...

paint - If blogger is being stubborn, you can go upload your photos onto photobucket.com. After you upload, it will give you a URL for the photo, and you can put that into Blogger's photo loading window. It loads in seconds that way...that is how I have been doing it for the past few days (and notice now that I am posting every day. That's why!)

Fortunately, blogger is being fairly good today. My biggest problem is that I am trying to do about fifteen things at once. SO it is taking a while, but I can, on occasion, be patient. Sort of...
