I See Them Walking In An Air Of Glory Whose Light Doth Trample On My Days,-- My Days, Which Are At Best But Dull And Hoary, Mere Glimmering And Decays.
I see them walking in an air of glory
Whose light doth trample on my days,--
My days, which are at best but dull and hoary,
Mere glimmering and decays.
-- Henry Vaughan (1621-1695)

And knew what they're doin' But of all the words written The bird is a strange one, And all the lines read, So small and so tender There's one I like most, Its breed still unknown, And by a bird it was said!...
The bank called to tell me that I'm overdrawn, Some freaks are burning crosses out on my front lawn, And I *can't*believe* it, all the Cheetos are gone, It's just ONE OF THOSE DAYS!
