The time has came.
Today is the day.
It is here upon us
and there's no going back.
Today we'll celebrate
the class of 2014-2015
as we leave our nest
and as we say goodbye.
And as we walk down that stage
in our green cap and gowns
classmates, friends, families,
and teachers will all be there watching
with joy and tears in their eyes.
And now that this time is here
it is time to ...

The past is the past.

The future is ahead of us waiting.
So, whenever that time comes
take ahold of it and don't look back.

Deep inside my swollen body, she kicks

Poem for Bob Crow (cheers W.H. Auden)
Stop all the docks, cut off the trains,
Start the mariners striking, be still the cranes,
Silence the busses and with muffled bullhorn
Bring out the coffin, let the workers come.
Let politicians circle, moaning overhead
confessing on the airwaves, He Is RED,
Put nooses round the white necks of the bosses,
Let the riot policemen carry their own crosses.
