In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 – 1918)

Career opportunities

A few career options for me to consider if I’m ever well enough to work again.

High-energy prop comic.
"Hey! Lookit this!"

Wal-Mart greeter.
"Welcome to hell, you cheap-ass redneck!"

Coffee shop secret shopper.
"You’re going down, you patchouli drenched hipster!"

Maybe not…

Whaddya think, sirs?
