Oh, and there we were all in one place, a generation lost in space with no time left to start again.
So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 'cause fire is the devil's only friend.
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell.
And as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite,
I saw Satan laughing with delight, the day the music died.

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity

A little early, but because blogging at work is verboten (at least for the moment), happy 200th birthday Edgar Allen Poe (January 19, 1809)

I own his complete works in one giant book. In junior high I did "The Telltale Heart" at speech contests. Never won anything, but I loved doing it.

I read a lot of his stuff when I was younger, it's still affecting me.

It was a good day all around, Camille, with all the different celebrations. I hope you had a good one as well.
