And now for something completely different

I think between my post, my husbands post (if you read one you probably read the other but here is his link if you don't ) and the news in general we have had enough depressing and frustrating rants in the last week. I sat down to write another post about the homosexual agenda, (more debate and less rant) but I’m not going to. Instead, I’m going to take a tip from Monty Python… And now for something completely different!
Here is a poem for your reflection, it’s meant to be serious and thought provoking, but since it’s also a Cochainian political commentary poem it won’t necessarily make full sense to most of my readers. But, I think the general gist of it transcends cultural boundaries.

Busy rushing always going
So many things, so many cares
What life is this of rush and haste?

Are we warriors that lives hang on our actions?
Or rulers that support nations?
Does not the ale spill if the server is rushed?
Are not the stitches loose if the seamstress hurries?

Shall man require his convenience over another life?
Let it not be!
Even the slave is given the festivals.

Do not follow the senseless sun
Which rushes forever through its daily race.
It accomplishes nothing in its haste
And needs arise anew every day
To chase its path through the sky.

Rather observe the stately march of the stars,
Whose quiet pace is a help to all who seek it.

Did you know that according to the US Department of Agriculture fruity cocktails are good for your health? You see, apparently the ethanol (alcohol in rum, tequila, and other hard spirits) boost the antioxidant nutrients in colorful fruits such as strawberries or blackberries. To quote “Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol”. Lets see, I guess that lets hard alcohols, provided you drink them with fruit, join the group of ‘health foods’ right along side red wines. I guess it just goes to show, ‘everything in moderation’. Which really should be ‘most things in moderation’, because there are some things that should be done to excess. ;) Here’s the link to the news article if you’re interested:

Here are some well known scientists from the past that were creationists (for a much more complete list look at : Frances Bacon, Galileo Galilei, Johann Kepler, Blaise Pascal, Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, Johathan Edwards, Carolus Linneaus, Samuel F.B. Morse, Gregor Mendel, Louis Pasteur, William Thompson (Lord Kelvin), Joseph Lister, James Clerk Maxwell, Alexander MacAlister, and George Washington Carver. So just remember, if you believe in the Bible you are not only in good standing religiously but also intellectually and scientifically!

Nope, never mind, I think I’ll take my own advise, this is one joke that should be used in moderation.
