Something That Popped Into My Head

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts…
William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616), “As You Like It”, Act 2 scene 7

I would like to modify this quote to fit these modern times more appropriately…

All the world’s a stage,
Where most act like nothing is wrong,
Some think the show’s end is fast approaching,
While to others the finale is nowhere in sight…

Hai-Kuul – June 30, 2005 – 500th Hai-Kuul Request Contained Within!

Sick of Me Yet? (Requested by Drea)
It would take much more
For you to drive me away
A gun, for instance

Gold to Cole (Requested by Drea)
If the Olympics
Had events for flamboyance
Cole Porter would win!

Blue Clouds (Requested by Drea)
This is what happens
When you replace the Ocean
With blue Kool-Aid drink

Azaleas (Requested by Drea)
Beautiful flowers
That make many people glad
Including grandmas

Tea (Requested by Drea)
A diuretic
In which you can put lemon
And also honey

Montgomery Burns (Requested by Drea)
Springfield’s richest man
Is also most delicate
Smithers wants him bad

Car Seats (Requested by Drea)
Made for child safety
They must be used properly
For them to work right

Political Conclusions (Requested by Drea)
Elections may come
And then elections may go
And still we trudge on

Heathen (Requested by Drea)
Some fear difference
Persecuting others for
A different belief

Northern Shores (Requested by Drea)
The colder waters
Gather their strength at these points
Resisting freezing

Quail (Requested by Drea)
Why are the Quail’s eggs
So much different than the
Eggs of a chicken?

Faery Dust (Requested by Drea)
Magic beyond us
Some believe it makes us fly
I believe it’s drugs

Clairol (Requested by Drea)
Not just hair products
But some of the best marketing
In Earth’s history

The 500th Hai-Kuul Request

Of course Drea would have to be the one who requested it. Given the fact that this gal sends more requests my way than anyone else, she was bound to hit the number. Here it is…

Canada Rocks My Casbah (Requested by Drea)
Our country is great
Not just because of the land
But because of us!
