My beard grows to my toes--
I never wears no clothes.
I wraps my hair
Around my bare
And down the road I goes!

Thank you, Shel.

Kirstin, that was great.

However, I notice that nobody is professing their love for Faulkner, nor quoting his interminable sentences.
(I do love Faulkner, btw. Not as much as a secular Jewish guy I once dated who proclaimed, "Faulkner is my god!" He came to hear me preach one day and I happened to quote Faulkner in the sermon that day -- it may be the only time that has ever happened -- and he decided that I was the "OK" kind of Christian).
