Random Poem:

El Sid (wee edit)

He steigered (ouch!)
into the heat of the night;
red veined, in the sunset
of his life.
No one saw him
no one held him tight
as he crashed down
through the sunset
of his life
and lay there, still:
The son, the father
and wholly gross, drunk
uncle and brother, the mother
of all braggadocios.
And the stars looked down
their noses, and the moon
was full of cheese
and tomorrow will start
with mourning ...
but not a lot.
