Like it says. Anything you like. This one's my current fav.

  [FONT size=4]Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)[/FONT]                We Wear the Mask       W[FONT size=-2]E[/FONT] wear the mask that grins and lies,
    It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,
    This debt we pay to human guile;
    With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
    And mouth with myriad subtleties.      Why should the world be over-wise,
    In counting all our tears and sighs?
    Nay, let them only see us, while
            We wear the mask.      We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
    To thee from tortured souls arise.
    We sing, but oh the clay is vile
    Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
    But let the world dream otherwise,
            We wear the mask!

Always end the name of your child with a vowel, so that when you yell the name will carry.
Bill Cosby.

Burning Daylight

Dawn breaks, promises of sun
I've finished my chores, the day has begun.
Coffee tastes good, like a tonic I guess
I'll take only a moment to post on DS.

LOL. Good one, Ms. PC.

     [H1][FONT color=#990099 size=+1 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]I Am My Own Grandpa[/FONT][/H1] [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]Many, many years ago
When I was twenty-three
I got married to a widow
Pretty as could be. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]This widow had a grow-up daughter
With flowing hair of red.
My father fell in love with her,
And soon the two were wed. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life.
Now my daughter was my mother,
For she was my father's wife. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]To complicate the matters worse,
Although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad.
And so became my uncle,
Though it made me very sad. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]For if he was my uncle,
Then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]Father's wife then had a son
Who kept them on the run.
And he became my grandson,
For he was my daughter's son. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue.
Because, although she is my wife,
She's my grandma, too. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]If my wife is my grandmother,
Then I am her grandchild.
And every time I think of it,
It simply drives me wild. [/FONT]

 [FONT color=#990099 size=2 face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"]For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw,
As the husband of my grandmother,
I am my own grandpa! [/FONT]
