IF you’re going to try, go all the way.
Otherwise, don’t even start. If you’re going to try, go all the way.
This could mean losing girlfriends,
Wives, relatives, jobs and maybe your mind. Go all the way.
It could mean not eating for three or four days.
It could mean freezing on a park…

Poetry

by Broadhat We need:
The new authority.
Renew authority.

High trust
Self disciplined
Loyal to the Folk

Folk below,
Same blood, same soul, 
same destiny.

They compromised their loyalty,
They compromised their blood.

Neither fish nor fowl;
nor folk or fully foe.
Pity them, if pity have you…

Robert Frost by Robert Frost
from Steeple Bush (1947) Harrison loves my country too,
But wants it all made over new.

By day he’s Marxian Muscovite.
It isn’t because he’s Russian Jew.
He’s Puritan Yankee through and through.
He dotes on Saturday pork and beans.
But his…

Classic EssaysRevilo P. Oliver

Made thunderstorms in play,
Piling them up until
The East was hill on hill
Of gleaming gold and quartz
And crags and granite forts.

With closed eye dream-beguiled,
It sleeps athwart the land,
But clenching in trailing hand…

Traps sprang open.
Dogs chased.
They ran full tilt.
Perfect canine athletes, they ran as if their lives depended on it.
Trying to catch a mechanical…

Götterdämmerung
by Dr. Peter H. Peel When spring lightly touches,
With hand green and golden,
The mountains and fjords,
Then shouts the sea rover,
“A-viking! A-viking!” The hammers are busy,
On weapon and harness.
Then flashes the broad blade,
In every sea hamlet.
The dragon ships, thirsty,
For bounding…

The lofty vault, to gather…
