new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Perfect! Yes, Melody felt personally insulted that her birthday this year was on Black Friday. What a spectacle! (Black Friday greed, not her birthday, I mean....) The world is too much with us....
Thanks, Joseph and belated Happy Birthday wishes to Melody! As for her feeling personally insulted, she might take solace in the knowledge that this barbaric American "tradition" has successfully jumped the Atlantic and is now firmly entrenched in the modern Hellenic Zeitgeist--we had scenes at some stores that were reminiscent of the sacking of Athens by the Herules; materialism still reigns supreme even in financially battered Hellas.
