tis th wounding of th stag
th hurt that magnifies good
oh that paint does flow
and hopes for mo
and more, too
does task away the blues
a marvel indeed
someway i'll join on in again
and scan a snippet
of handy sketch
first christmas at michigan,
ann arbor arboretum waiting,
close by the dorm
in the rec room,
a christmas tree needing some popcorn strings,
our dorm mother, an elderly stoic obsolete stereotypic
presence, who retired at years end,
the last of her kind,
thelma nee ritter was her name,
she was there stringing the popcorn strings,
and we were there sort of not being too serious,
and among us was a predominance of jewish students from cass tech, in detroit.
they were throwing popcorn onto the christmas tree and shouting, "hail caesar!"
thelma was acting like she did not understand and kept making the popcorn strings.
again and again they exclaimed,
as we ate the popcorn, laughing.....
they were right.
st. nicholas voted in constantine's favor
at nicea, a bishop he was,
in favor of the official church doctrine that believes in
jesus and god as one
against the followers of arius,
who knew jesus as a holy man
seperate from his maker
this became a heresy under emporer constantine,
who remained faithful to his roman pagan imperialism til his deathbed
when he converted to
we always workin good, ja
it's time to resurrect arius
and the spirit of inclusion through a common source,
which we should all revere
and walk with decency before others.
lest elija come back, stead of jesus.
happy new year and thanks for th inclusion
th deisel marvel doeth apologize for
hijacking th thread,
i humbly ride along
to stand in good stead
