Ummm...hello's a little something to dispute a much vaunted phrase of superior consideration...

(when you read this assume the voice of Peter O'Toole)

Ware the graphite strand

How wonderfully simplistic innocent complexity
To think that with this pencil I could ply
The backwoods and the highways from ripe farm to vogue city
To never leave yet from this building fly

From one point I have spilled my soul upon a virgin page
Yet from erasures end I wipe it clean
In the span of minutes I can cause a time to age
Or polluted pulp I could with pressure glean

Ware the sword yet more the pen I think I've heard it said
Yet both of these when used cannot undo
I'll brandish forth my graphite strand to challenge you instead
With full reversal I can erase you

That my friends is true power...greater than the sword...greater than the pen...a simple line series in graphite...that can also be rubbed away...

This was Very Cool YouSir! I Like This one a lot!!
This bit here: "To never leave yet from this building fly."
Reminds Me of "I took a Trip and never left The Farm."
When Reading 'takes You Away'. Writing does the same.

Nicely Done My Friend!

Yah buddy.I heard Jimmy Stafford Play, "WildWood Weed." a couple weeks ago. Not sure if anyone has done that before. However, Thinking back now, He did say that someone else wrote that song...... Pretty good one! LOL!!!
