Watched a boiling pot.
He thought, “Will steam lift the lid?”

Orlando Bloom, he leaves me smiling.
As Legolas, he's quite beguiling.
from forest glen to elvin home,
he flitters on through Tolkein's tome.
Ella Fitzgerald, her voice a bright note,
sang high and low straight from her throat.
The lady sang jazz

Jonathan Edwards, a preacher

HelenDQ, novice of A.Word.A.Day,

Fueled the fires of the French Revolution

Favoured the rise of the meritocrat.

He met Charlotte Corday.

Canadian General Sam Hill
invented odd gadgets at will.
But his orders soon got so batty
His troops said "What the Sam Hill was that, eh?"
(High school memory of his invention of the shovel with a hole in it that could also be used as a shield while advancing on the enemy.)
