The safety coffin bell still rang. The sexton sent another apprentice to check the grave. Soon, he would run out of them.

I've decided to write a poem to cheer the others. So far, I have managed to rhyme "surface world" with "our new Overlord".

It towers over the fetid bay, describing an arc of Stygian darkness; ship after ship is sent to its doom by the darkhouse.

This came out of a discussion with my 2 year old. He's exploring the concept of opposites.

I watch the infected shamble along the freeway under abundant sunshine. They say "sunlight is the best disinfectant."

Thanks. I have to credit my son. Toddlers don't have the blinders of logic to get in the way if imagination.

Michael sat in a large bucket of milk mourning the loss of his continence. It was then he finally swore off tacos for good.

"Celebrity Chef: Part 2"

A sequel to my first twabble:

"Dammit Bieber, don't you get it!" yelled an exasperated Jennifer Lawrence. "To Serve Celebrities. IT'S A COOKBOOK!"

They hatch from beneath my scalp and one by one slither free. "Finally," I gasp, my voice barely a whisper "I'm a mother."

When the emperor died, we were buried alive as a sacrifice. While the royals sob and mourn, we are learning to dig upward.

Jason cocked his head to the side, thinking. Finally, he came to a decision with a smile. "Yes, I would die for that joke."

It's been a while folks, but I was inspired today:

Our guide said the serial killer brains were for study, not re-implantation, then rubbed his head and resumed the tour.

I was also working on a variation, but couldn't quite make it right:

"Mr. Bindy" explained the serial killer brains were for research, not transplant, then complimented my sorority pin.

I can't be the only one worried this is autobiographical.
