I'm imagining their fidget spinners whacking him in the temples. :)

Fireblossom said...

^^^LOL!

Fireblossom said...

ps--which kind of temples?

said...

Precisely.

And which kind of "whacked."

We can also twist "alterations" and "bomb(shell)." For example, what if they sew his clothes, so they're going to take out their frustrations by (gasp) adding color.

Is there a haiku between the title and the video clip? If so I can't see it.. Not sure why it won't load. Of course, your brevity may be that the title is the poem....

Kerry, sorry you can't see it. Not sure why not. This is it:

The world is indeed ending. Shay wrote a haiku. Now i'm really scared. Smiles.

P.S. "Gathering nightshade while I may" ... Priceless.
