The Answers to Discussion Topics

Postby rdearman » Thu Jan 14, 2016 11:38 pm

I started this thread over in the old HTLAL because I just couldn't help myself when looking at the topic name and something funny (to me anyway) occured to me. So I have seen a few of these here also and thought I'd restart the thread. As always no offence is intended to the topic starter!

“And when he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world
Will be in love with the night
And pay no worship to the garish sun

Preferred pronouns: feminine.
