    Hollow parachute

    Statues refusing to stand still
    cold blooded pacifists
    going in for the kill
    harmless barbarians
    a mouthful of fists
    for dog hating veterinarians

    Strange waters fueling the fire
    Twelve honest men
    nothing but liars
    experienced virgins
    with verbal strengths
    for hemophobic surgeons

    Strong moon on a sunny night
    innocent thieves
    using dull knives
    ground bound helicopters
    scattering leaves
    for the uncaring doctors

    Paradoxically Complex

    I said Yes!
    It said No.
    I tried a No!
    It said Yes.
    I now got very involved
    so I said: Both!!
    It turned around and said:
    Is that a question?:confused:
    Nah!! It's black and white'
    I plied
    'Oh..I didn't notice'!!
    It replied
    so I quickly went:
    You couldn't!! You didn't hear it'!:rolleyes:
    It flustered then puffed
    It got really fuzzled
    so much it diddled and left away,
    and I
    smiled, wriggled then winked
    and did it all again.:D

    The paragraph below,
    for those who are slow,
    is indeed-ed-ly askew.

    But I say, with love,
    the paragraph above,
    is royally, purely true!
