    That's too poetic to be coincidence.

    Unless you did indeed come up with it for this thread, in which case kudos!

    "When and if fascism comes to America...it will not even be called 'fascism'; it will be called, of course, 'Americanism'" --Professor Halford E. Luccock of Yale Divinity School; New York Times article from September 12, 1938, page 15

    •  I took these lines from W.B. Yeats; (3+ / 0-)

      "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last/Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

      And substituted my deranged vision. Do I get an "A" for creativity or am I thrown out of Kos Kollege for plagiarism?

        (excerpted)..

        ...Things fall apart; the centre can not hold

        ...The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.

        ...A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
        A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
        Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
        Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

        Kinda Newt-like imagery.

        Resist much, obey little. ~~Edward Abbey, via Walt Whitman
