From "Poems of depressing frustration:"

I am dislexic and high on drugs
I am innocent and full of love
deception and despair
without them
i am without care
i have a reason
allthought i am unsure
i think its my season
i think its a cure

Purple Cow Poem

knock knock
who are you
knock knock
what are you doing
i can't understand
who are you
what are you man
i am my dreams
and so it would seem
i think i am glad
i think i have had
a good deal
a great day
being a cow
i have to graze
the grass is purple
and so you will know
i am the purple cow
you will know where i go


I have a phd
i study something different
i study philosophy
i study the way you study me
so what is my name
and what will i change
does it matter
is it true
i've been told a lie
its my fault
is it my fault
i trusted you

All of the above were written by someone named "aaron," who runs the site WWW.NEW NAVY.U$ and who feels extremely passionate about nuclear submarines, cheese, Jesus, the Moon, and myriad others. Here's his "12 step recovery program:"
  1. get out of the navy (any possible way, multiple links from this site)
  2. lie to people for personal advancement (you are only offsetting what others have done for you)
  3. buy a computer
  4. install dreamweaver mx
  5. build a web site
  6. make anti navy t shirts
  7. advertise
  8. eat cheese
  9. buy mace
  10. challenge broken system
  11. repair broken system
  12. run for office
"rape kill murder and pillage, EAT DONUTS <--- notice these are not part of my program" Amen. Fortunately, poetry is part of all of our programs.

The ice cream place near me--and in Allison's town!--has a frozen yogurt flavor called Purple Cow. That's all I thought of when I saw that poem.
