A Squabble Between Words


It was turning out to be a 2-story affair

A tale of two notions broadly cast over one station

Mumbled confusion of the third degree

Quadrupling the troubles of free choice

GM Commits Suicide At The Concession Stand

What will it be? If GM cannot appease the Obama administration

Inhibitions and restrictions vary from place to place.

What was so great about Rome?

Would you do as the Romans do, if you happened

to find yourself in a Grecian state of mind?

It sounds fairly dangerous to me, weighing the risks involved.

Then again…mother owns the scales.
