I was looking at this again and something just didn't seem quite right. Correct number of characters and all. It was just off.. maybe it was just because it kind of sucked...

Edited for your pleasure (please disregard the claptrap I wrote before. This is more akin to twabble gold.

There... it floats off the tongue much better... Wow. That felt kind of cathartic. I'll be in my bunk.

Home is where the heart is. That's why I kept it. Still beating. Under the floorboards in that old shack. Home sweet home.

In jail I taught grammar to my cellmate. But angered by adverbs, he shivved my gut -- ending my sentence with a semicolon.

Pulsating, with viscous red juices flowing from its every orifice, the heart sat bleeding on the table. She had left me.

Ha! Reminds me of the joke about the black box devices installed in Ford pickup trucks. Most frequent last words? "Hold mah beer while I do this thang!" Followed by a close second with: "Watch this!"

"I don't want to! This will breed dischord among the young which will lead to global Choas!" "Just take out the garbage."

I remember once in high school, when I tried to argue with a lunchroom monitor. Our grade wasn't allowed to leave the school grounds at the time. I rather deftly linked this onerous rule to the discontent of the youth, coupled with feelings of deep resentment. I then extrapolated this to general social dischord and somehow wound up at nuclear war. It was the 80's. Not surprising, he didn't fall for it.
