When The Mill Shut Down

When the mill shut down
we hit the pavement with a thud
then we all got up and kept walking.

Some to the work house
some to the poor house
some to the whorehouse
and the grave.

This reads more like the first sentence
of a Will Dockery autobiography than
a poem. Don't stop there. Continue
the progression. Keep up the good
work! I'll be away most of the day,
but look forward to discussing this
later when we both have more time.

Please don't get too caught up on that.
It takes courage to do a lot of things.
It takes courage to get out of bed.

Nothing to argue about, here.

Then go look for your argument
elsewhere. You know you want to.

Good idea, we'd hate for you to lose the argument and then go into one of
your violent fantasies.

Again.

"...if I wanted you dead, you'd be dead."

That looks pretty "violent" to me.

I missed this yesterday, thanks to Jimmy for archiving it.

Not a bad idea, seriously... not much time this way, either, but discussions around here tend to happen fast, anyhow.

Wow, sometimes I wonder why you even bother to post here at all, the way you delete posts before we can even get a chance to read them.

Seriously, I have to say this is an annoying habit of yours.

Why?
Because I opened the thread to read a post and there's nothing there.

Is that so hard for you to understand?

Never mind, I'm sure you know that is annoying, how could you not know.

You think I mean to annoy you?
Are you trying to annoy me?
Do you think I'd be annoyed if
my trying to annoy you didn't?
What do you think I'd do then?

An autobiography would need to go into more specific detail, such as:

"Will Dockery entry in the "Who's Who of American Comic Books 1928-1999" -

From the Introduction: "The Who's Who of American Comic Books is a database
designed to document the careers of people who have contributed to or
supported the publication of original material in U.S. comic books in the
years 1928-99. It is not a checklist, but rather a resume of a person's
creative career. Each resume covers not only a person's comics career, but
as much information as could be located about his/her other creative and
professional work in advertising, prose, TV, animation, syndication, and
other sister fields and professions. The scope of the Who's Who includes
anyone known to have contributed directly to or supported the field of
original U.S. comic books..."

"What kind of peace do I mean and what kind of a peace do we seek? Not a Pax
Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of
the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace,
the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living." -John F. Kennedy,
1963

No, there's a few more chapters left, such as...

She Sleeps Tight

Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.
Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.
Dice and coins
scattered in the snow.

Won't be long,
until I see her face.
She's waiting
in an undisclosed place.
I've been conspired
banned from my muse.

This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.
This won't stick
poor boy's all confused.

In Salem town
she keeps her chin so high.
Darkened breeze
she smiles as I roll by.
Step inside
she looks for tables left.

Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.
Wink at time
nothing lasts except yourself.

Like a Steamboat
she plans to roll on down.
To the Gulf
out of this dirty town.
Copper mesh
kept stuffed in a jar.

Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.
Sharp cold hit
turning wine to water.

We know him
eye deed by his ship.
In a trap
a kind of goose chase trip.
Whiskey fumes
and stale gun smoke.

Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.
Sunk and drowned
with all her knives and jokes.

Sleeps so tight
she has a marksman's eye.
Maker's mark
tattoo firewater spine.
Leather shoes
but nowhere to go.

-Will Dockery

And so it goes...
