          From: JOELFALLON on 1999

 Eye halve a spelling chequer

 Such soft wear four pea seas,
 And why eye brake in two averse
 Buy righting want too please.

Subj:     Reincarnation, By Wallace McRae (S110)
          From: mbucher in 1999

 What is reincarnation? A cowboy asked his friend.
 It starts, his old pal told him, when your life
    comes to an end.
 They wash your neck and comb your hair and clean your
 And put you in a padded box away from life's travails.

 The box and you goes in a hole that's been dug in the ground.
 Reincarnation starts in when you're planted neath that mound.
 Them clods melt down, just like the box, and you who is inside.
 And that's when you begin your transformation ride.

 And in a while the grass will grow upon your rendered mound,
 Until some day, upon that spot, a lonely flower is found.
 And then a horse may wander by and graze upon that flower
 That once was you, and now has become your vegetated bower.

 Now, the flower that the horse done eat, along
    with his other feed,
 Makes bone and fat and muscle essential to the steed.
 But there's a part that he can't use and so it passes through.
 And there it lies upon the ground, this thing that once was you.

 And if perchance, I should pass by and see this on the ground,
 I'll stop awhile and ponder at this object that I've found.
 I'll think about Reincarnation and life and death and such,
 And come away concludin', why, you ain't changed all that much.

Subj:     Mirror Mirror - Poem (S649b)
          From: LABLaughsClean in 2009

 Mirror, mirror on the wall,
    Do you have to tell it all?
 Where do you get the glaring right
    To make my clothes look just too tight?
 I think I'm fine but I can see
    you won't co-operate with me;
 The way you let the shadows play,
    You'd think my hair was getting grey
 What's that, you say?  A double chin?
    No, that's the way the light comes in;
 If you persist in peering so,
    You'll confiscate my facial glow,
 And then if you're not hanging straight,
    You'll tell me next I'm gaining weight;
 I'm really quite upset with you,
    For giving this distorted view;
 I hate you being smug and wise...
    O, look what's happened to my thighs!
 I warn you now, O mirrored wall,
    Since we're not on speaking terms at all,
 If I look like this in my new jeans,
    You'll find yourself in smithereens!!

Subj:     Slow Dance Poem (S614c)
          by David L. Weatherford
          From: hellgunner50 on 10/10/2008
 Source: www.snopes.com/inboxer/medical/slowdance.asp

 Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,
 or listened to rain slapping the ground?

 Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight,
 or gazed at the sun fading into the night?

 You better slow down, don't dance so fast,
 time is short, the music won't last.

 Do you run through each day on the fly,
 when you ask "How are you?", do you hear the reply?

 When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
 with the next hundred chores running through your head?

 You better slow down, don't dance so fast,
 time is short, the music won't last.

 Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow,
 and in your haste, not see his sorrow?

 Ever lost touch, let a friendship die,
 'cause you never had time to call and say hi?

 You better slow down, don't dance so fast,
 time is short, the music won't last.

 When you run so fast to get somewhere,
 you miss half the fun of getting there.

 When you worry and hurry through your day,
 it's like an unopened gift thrown away.

 Life isn't a race, so take it slower,
 hear the music before your song is over.
 Please note the following information which was
 verified by Snopes.com at the above source:

 Slow Dance poem was written NOT by a "terminally ill
 young girl in a New York Hospital" who wanted "as her
 dying wish to send a letter telling everyone to live
 their life to the fullest," but by David L. Weatherford,
 an adult male child psychologist.

 A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This
 video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward.
 Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the
 exact opposite.  This is only a 1 minute, 44 second
 video and it is brilliant.  Make sure you read as well
 as listen... forward and backward.

Subj:     Walking A Crooked Path (S277b)
          From: mombear1 in 2002

 One day through the primeval woods,
 a calf walked home as good calves should.

 But made a trail all bent askew,
 a crooked trail as all calves do.

 Since then three hundred years have fled,
 and I infer the calf is dead.

 But still he left behind his trail,
 and thereby hangs my moral tale.

 The trail was taken up next day,
 by a lone dog that passed that way:

 And then a wise bell-wether sheep,
 pursued the trail o'er vale and steep,

 And drew the flock behind him, too,
 as good bell-wether sheep, always do.

 And from that day, o'er hill and glade,
 through those old woods a path was made.

 And many men wound in and out,
 and dodged and turned and bet about,

 And uttered words of righteous wrath,
 because 'twas such a crooked path;

 But still they followed--do not laugh--
 the first migrations of that calf.

 And through this winding wood-way stalked,
 because he wobbled when he walked.

 This forest patch became a lane,
 that bent and turned and turned again;

 This crooked lane became a road,
 where many a poor horse with his load,

 Toiled on beneath the burning sun,
 and traveled some three miles in one.

 And thus a century and a half,
 they tred the footsteps of that calf.

 The years passed on in swiftness fleet,
 the road became a village street;

 And this, before men were aware,
 a city's crowded thoroughfare.

 And soon the central street was this,
 of a renowned metropolis;

 And men two centuries and a half,
 tred in the footsteps of that calf.

 Each day a hundred thousand men,
 follow this zigzag calf again,

 And o'er his crooked journey went,
 the traffic of a continent.

 A hundred thousand men were led,
 by one calf near three centuries dead.

 They followed still his crooked way,
 and lost one hundred years a day;

 For thus such reverence is lent,
 to a well-established precedent.

 A moral lesson this might teach,
 were I ordained and called to preach;

 For men are prone to get blind,
 along the calf-path of the mind,

 And work away from sun to sun,
 to do what others men have done.

 They follow in the beaten track,
 and in and out, and forth and back,

 And still their devious course pursue,
 to keep the path that others do.

 They keep the path a sacred groove,
 along which all their lives they move.

 But how the old wood-gods laugh,
 who first saw the primeval calf.

 And, many things this tale might teach--
 but I'm not ordained to preach.

Subj:     Ring Around the Rosey
How about these.... The nursery rhyme Ring Around the Rosey
    is a rhyme about the plague. Infected people with the
    plague would get red circular sores ("Ring around the
    rosey..."), these sores would smell very badly so common
    folks would put flowers on their bodies somewhere
    (inconspicuously), so that it would cover the smell of
    the sores ("...a pocket full of poseys ..."), People who
    died from the plague would be burned so as to reduce the
    possible spread of the disease ("...ashes, ashes, we all
    fall down!")
