The Rich Man and the Poor Man, not as sad as yesterday's you'll be pleased to hear. xxx

The Rich Man and the Poor Man

A page made by Seligor of things that maybe you won't know of, till now.



The Rich Man and the Poor Man



A rich man and a poor man sat beneath the pink and lemon blossom trees of Spring.

The rich man said:

"Ah the scent of these trees gives me a headache. I am not too dull a fellow that my mind does not tell me how beautiful it is. But then I begin to think of how I might buy up this land so that the trees are exclusively mine and… Continue

MARIKO, The story of many children who live this way. Willowdown

MARIKO

Mariko - san

A child was born on a rubbish tip. Its mother was the shell of an old broken fridge and her father was a rusty old pick up truck.

Her name was Mariko-san and she had thick black curly hair, golden-brown skin, eyes like glorious stars and a little mouth like a rose-bud.

I have just come across a wee story/poem that I wrote a couple of years ago

'Hold still, my Coo, my hinny,

Hold still, my hinny, my Coo,

And ye shall have for your dinner

What but a milk white doo.'



But the big, big Coo wouldn't hold still. 'Hout!' said the… Continue

A Groovy Quote:- or stuck in a rut with a dragon!!!!!

A Groovy Quote:- or stuck in a rut with a dragon!!!!!



Could this possible be the description of an old vinyl record, as In the Groove.



Of course it could also be the grooves made by the wheels of a cart, or even a scooter, anything really that when travelling through mud forms a groove. When Valcour was at the meeting in the Great Chamber after Baizals death. He left deep grooves with his talons on the table, just before he killed Yodroth.
