Sinking posts and stringing bob wire.
A horseman afoot with no friend to bring
Comes slowly across deserts burnt by wind instead of fire.
Staples bend, hammers drop, no spare hand to retrieve 'em
Marks are made too far and light for two eyes to perceive 'em
Lies are invented and repeated with no ear there to believe 'em
And gates go in too woody and wide for two arms to achieve 'em.
So if your vision is of a new Earth
And you have a mission to pursue
My advice, for what it's worth,
Is there's more lasting work to do.
When the weather sours and breezes rise as they do each November-
Douse your campfire and take some time to spit on ev'ry ember,
Pack up your bedroll, your come-along and jug, if you remember,
And head for town and find you a committee needs a member.
HIGH-MISSION, adj. Low effort.
Ok. I've calmed down.

Sarah Palin suggests she's on a mission from a higher power. ...
Sometimes the guy with the smallest penis has the most kids.
You take the high mission
I'll take the low effort.
We'll see who gets sweaty
and who gets all rested.
We don't have to do this
just take ours by default.
You mean darkness and darkness equal light? Interesting logic!
I s'pose you're going to tell me that Elko's so lonesome 'cause he misses his brothers Imlay and Lovelock.
I also s'pose that we'uns had better be on the lookout for an epidemic of camels.
The Gnu is on a mission!!
Nessa, you're better than a feed.
Sauerkraut, the great inkblot in the sky sent her to replace George W Bush?
Tom, I have no problem believing there's an inverse correlation.
That won't cure the laughter, Bear.
That's how wisdom is made, Ariel.
Uncle Midas isn't in such good health either, Amoeba. Good link.
You gnu he would be, Thom.
ROTFL Tom & Doug!! Men and their ways of bragging...
I had something very smart to say. Honest. I did.
But then I read Tom's comment. That Tom. Lost my train of thought.
You're right Ariel. Neither of them has any kids.
"Many hands make lighter work"
That quote is from 1497- John Heywood. A devout socialist (near communist) poet and writer.
Sometimes two are better than one.
Oh my, Terry. The devil was around ALL this time? (You see, Actonbell? I am saving the situation!)

Ariel, at least you can tell us from a distance.
You know what they say about men with small families, TLP.
Haha, Actonbell. I bet this wasn't your first time.
Terry, they've been wrecking society since 1497? Explains a lot.
Heh, heh right back, Coop.
Ariel, my point exactly.
I hope the window for comments hasn't closed yet. This looks like an intellectually stimulating debate!
I like the twist this took, and Dr. Minnie thoroughly approves.
