three blind mice
dt and i were chatting about the future of the blog..the blogs first anniversary is quickly approaching..and we were talking about how it all started when dt says..
you know..your little blog is kind of like a nursery rhyme..
rhyme..im not a poet..i couldnt rhyme cat with..uh..hold on..wait..uh..
youre missing the point..nursery rhymes have historically been used to express opinions that could not be spoken freely. some seemingly silly rhymes included political statements which if they had been spoken straightforward.. would be punishable by death.
well i might as well be speaking freely..i mean attorneys were hired to investigate me.. computer geeks to hunt me down..neighbors harassed..meetings held..and im serious..i swear there were drones looking for me..
there werent any drones..you saw the shadow of a crow..
well he was humming like a drone..
crows dont hum..anyway take the following nursery rhyme..
Three Blind Mice
Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run, see how they run,
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?
this is a rhyme about bloody mary..
queen mary the first, the staunch catholic, and her husband king philip of spain had massive estates ..the farms.. the three blind mice were three protestant noblemen who were convicted of plotting against the queen. she did not have their tails cut off…she burned them at the stake.
so im faced with getting my tail cut off or burned at the stake..nice..
listen lunk head..we are talking about how you write about wonderland and the controllers and the queen of hearts instead of naming everybody and..
getting burned at the stake..
oh stop..why dont we start planning the anniversary party..
youre not catholic..are you..
say goodnight lilly..
