Meadowlark,meadowlark
You play and play in every park.
Yet no one here
knows your happy cheer.
For football only do they embark.



Uh...let ME explain.
The meadowlark is our state bird, but Nebraskans only have
brains for UNL football. Go Big Red...it's like a fever.
Nothing can get through it, and it is incurable.

back to Uh,...VETINARY?

Sorry - too much Christmas wine, I fear - that should, of course, read
VETERINARY - VICE

A brillant young student Joe was, golf was his only vice
Often he cut Spelling Class, so he could correct his slice
But he spelled veterinary: vetinary
And his teachers reacted extraordinarily
They threw his clubs in a lake and crushed his balls in a vice.

It's a typical dull rainy day,
With the post-Christmas sales under way.
The shoppers engage
In their yearly rampage,
And Santa dismantles his sleigh. frown

It captures the moment as JJ says. Except here the temps
are way below freezing with snow all over everything.

Turning three-sixty degrees in three-sixty-five days
Tenacious we cling, as our tomorrow becomes our today
Changing Time we try to temperate
Even while moving Time dictates our fate
"The brain reels" said Homer Hoose, "Reality melts away" *

DECIPHER – DECEIT

Now 2012’s nearly complete’
Resolutions with history compete
And desires that we sigh for
We neatly decipher
Next year with the utmost deceit!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
