(talking at a wedding)
It's night time in the Big City
a man buys a pack of gum, steals a nail clipper
2 pairs of sneakers are strung over a phone line
It's the month of June and that means church bells are ringing all over this great land of ours. Strap yourself in and get me to the church on time!

The Books and Poems

  • Shakespeare Sonnet 116
    Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
    Within his bending sickle's compass come:
    Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me proved,
    I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
