The Living Dead Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

Since I have come to years sedate

I see with more and more acumen

The bitter irony of Fate,

The vanity of all things human.

Why, just to-day some fellow said,

As I surveyed Fame's outer portal:

"By gad! I thought that you were dead."

Poor me, who dreamed to be immortal!

But that's the way with many men

Whose name one fancied time-defying;

We thought that they were dust and then

We found them living by their dying.

Like dogs we penmen have our day,

To brief best-sellerdom elected;

And then, "thumbs down," we slink away

And die forgotten and neglected.

Ah well, my lyric fling I've had;

A thousand bits of verse I've minted;

And some, alas! were very bad,

And some, alack! were best unprinted.

But if I've made my muse a bawd

(Since I am earthy as a ditch is),

I'll answer humbly to my God:

Most men at times have toyed with bitches.

Yes, I have played with Lady Rhyme,

And had a long and lovely innings;

And when the Umpire calls my time

I'll blandly quit and take my winnings.

I'll hie me to some Sleepydale,

And feed the ducks and pat the poodles,

And prime my paunch with cakes and ale,

And blether with the village noodles.

And then some day you'll idly scan

The Times obituary column,

And say: "Dear me, the poor old man!"

And for a moment you'll look solemn.

"So all this time he's been alive -

In realms of rhyme a second-rater . . .

But gad! to live to ninety-five:

Let's toast his ghost - a sherry, waiter!"

What I have observed in terms of pc mormey is always that there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must go with the technical specs of the mother board. If the pc's motherboard is reasonably current and there are no operating system issues, upgrading the storage space literally normally takes under an hour. It's one of the easiest computer system upgrade procedures one can consider. Thanks for discussing your ideas. x x

Thanks for the suggestions, Susan. I was sprriused to learn that I've only read Trust Agents from your list looks like I've got a new set of books on summer reading list (and time's running out, so I'd better get started!).To add one to your list, David Meerman Scott's classic title, , was just rereleased (3rd edition). This is one of the first books I picked up, and while not specifically geared toward small businesses, is a must-have for anyone trying to build their influence, grow and nurture a community of followers, and increase sales (or volunteerism, votes, donations, etc.).
