Why when people are given the freedom of speech do they tend only to exercise the right to be vulgar ?
That's a 100 lines to Mr Scientist, IzzleKizzle and Gilgamesh
"I must resist the temptation to open my potty mouth in mixed company."
I shall persevere in the absence of others....Blake again my favourite poet.
THE CLOD AND THE PEBBLE
'Love seeketh not itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care,
But for another gives its ease,
And builds a heaven in hell's despair.'
So sung a little clod of clay,
Trodden with the cattle's feet,
But a pebble of the brook
Warbled out these metres meet:
'Love seeketh only Self to please,
To bind another to its delight,
Joys in another's loss of ease,
And builds a hell in heaven's despite.'
