Congrats, Mac!

Finally, an accurate portrayal!

We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.

Well done Mac! A rhyming sonnet, to boot. Get you.

Cheers

Thanks Seth, David and Tristan. Been a few school cleaners in the family...though I don't know any witches.

Well done, mac. Did you get the idea from a children's book?
I'm out of faith and in my cups
I contemplate such bitter stuff.
