Craven Raven

A  L  O  H  A !

“The End of the Raven
"On a night quite unenchanting, 
when the rain was downward slanting
I awakened to the ranting 
of the man I catch mice for.
Tipsy and a bit unshaven, 
in a tone I found quite craven,
Poe was talking to a Raven 
perched above the chamber door.
'Raven's very tasty,' thought I, 
as I tiptoed o'er the floor.
'There is nothing I like more.'"
Henry N. Beard, 
Poetry for Cats: 
The Definitive Anthology of 
Distinguished Feline Verse

Me & Stalin

“Wherever you see a wall, 
demolish it to broaden the 
horizons of the world! 
Wherever you see a tyrant, 
take him down to increase 
the light of the world!” 
            Mehmet Murat ildan

"Happy the generation 
where the great listen 
to the small, for 
it follows that in 
such a generation 
the small will listen 
to the great.
                   Jewish Proverb

Aloha Cloudia, your wise post brings this to mind, fitting for critters on Saturday too, "Let Freedom Ring, and the turtles, of course, the turtles are free. As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be. "Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss of course!
