Saturday Centus: Esmeralda gets a shot of you-know-what from Xentor!


"What's wrong, Esmeralda," Xentor asked, "you've been dumping around now most of the day."

"Oh, Uncle!  I am glad you noticed.  I just can't seem to get started with my term paper." 

"Well, perhaps I can help," offered Xentor in his big brother sort of way, "I'm experienced.  What is your theme?"

 "Part of my trouble, I'm not even collected enough for a theme.  I don't have a theme yet" she said with a wimpy little voice, "thanks but forget it."

"It's an amusing little whine you've got there.  Good start for a theme?" 

"'Little muse of mine; an amusing whine'."

"Uncle!  You're so brilliant!"

new generation
waiting, the tide will come in
they sweep it back out

old generation
waiting also, just to see
they know can't be done
