Untouched by Time – Theory of Anti-Commercialism., Matthew C.

Poised in the midst of a grass-woven plain,
The tranquility of this I wish to remain,
To hope of this I know is in vain,
No place is untouched by time. . .

Perched in the crest of my stronghold,
Steadfast I sit, unquestionably bold,
While the terror of certainty begins to unfold,
No place is untouched by time. . .

To fathom this, the decaying of lands,
A lush valley cast into the sifting sands,
The land rests in our economy’s hands,
No place is untouched by time. . .

Patchwork machines of alloy and steel,
The darkness of this undoubtedly real,
Buildings erected to global appeal,
No place is untouched by time. . .

It is too late for us to repent,
This land lain to waste by our consent,
But a "Home Depot" keeps us content,
No place is untouched by time. . .

Industry is double bladed, serrated,
To this we are excommunicated, In this economy we are lacerated,
No place is untouched by time. . .

Sewn together by strands of thread,
Mechanical monsters with rubber tread,
Soon comes the day that we all dread,
No place is untouched by time. . .

Think to the future, think of our kin,
What the world may have been, To stop this now is to only begin,
No place is untouched by time. . .

It is too late for us to repent,
This land lain to waste by out consent,
We regret this, loathing in our discontent
No place is untouched by time. . .

Domestication, Matthew C.

Sitting alone,
Awaiting my masters return,
For his blessing so tactile,
I look to and yearn.

For I am a beast of burden,
Living at my masters command,
For disobedience is dire,
I live or die by his hand.

For I am my masters pet,
Born and kept a slave,
Benefiting only from food and shelter,
I am solely devoted as a knave.

For I was born domestic,
Not by choice do I live this way,
No one stopped to consider my feelings,
Will this ownership go away?

Mask of the Mortality, Matt C.

Humanity wears a veil,
Concealing all their lies,
But lain behind this veil,
Rests tear burdened eyes.

They conceal their emotions,
Behind their twisted veil,
But as their feelings gather,
Their concealment slowly fails.

Struck by the ambiance,
Of all their pain and woe,
They enter a regression,
In which all their anguish shows.

For behind this twisted veil,
We harbor what we fear,
But like anything in time,
Will fall into the clear.

With our Masks of Mortality,
May give us peace of mind,
But slowly it falls apart,
Emerging from deep inside.

He strides with outward confidenc, Dean W.

He strides with outward confidence, taller than a mountain, deeper than the sea. A hero by looks, but terrified by all things... secretly. He is most happy being held dear, and being alone is his greatest fear. All he has to do is run forward, straight and swift to be that hero, but he’s only a zero.

He eventually realizes that his best isn’t good enough, so screams his soul. How can one do better when his heart isn’t whole? He wears his armor to sleep, hoping the metal will keep his sanity as he counts the farmer's sheep.

Gaunt and demure. Sockets sunken and deep, you can see that he always weeps. Red and white is his favorite color, to slowly match his ascending pallor. He walks towards the sea with graceful steps, his hero's looks that I have come to accept, and embraces the depths.

I Have an Idea!, Missy S- word.

The world didn’t just come equipped with toilets, bathtubs, and toasters. Sometimes people take for granted these simple inventions and do not realize that if we didn’t have them our world would be greatly affected. For example, if we didn’t have toilets our streets and water systems would be polluted with waste which would spread disease. Or if we didn’t have toasters our toast would be un-crispy which could greatly affect people’s moods.

The idea of the toilet was first introduced in 2000 B.C., in Greece. They were made out of limestone and were in the shape of a bowl. In 146 B.C. public urinals were introduced, or outhouses as we call them. In the year 1596 Sir. John Harrington invented the first flushable toilet. Alexandar Cumming, of London, received a patent for the flushing toilet that is the basic design for ours today, in 1896. A man named Thomas Crapper perfected the toilet in 1872; while he has passed, his name is forever remembered.

Like the toilet the idea of the bathtub was introduced in 2000 B.C., in Greece. Only the very wealthy had the tubs and they were made of marble or granite, much like our rich today. In the nineteenth century the design for the bathtub as we have today was laid out. In 1911, Kohler Company designed a built-in bathtub that was inserted into the ground instead of sitting on top of floor. In 1912, the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company built the tub and shower in one. Soon after, designers started to create Jacuzzi’s and designer bath tubs with elaborate designs and jets.

Another important milestone is the toaster was an invention that people tried for a long time to invent. In the middle ages peasants would cook outdoors on stones or on slates that became hot in the sun. Then in the eighteenth century, in Mt. Verona, a man hooked up an electric fan with heat, creating a toaster. In 1780, Thomas Robinson received a patent for the kitchen range.

We need to appreciate these simple everyday inventions, for if we didn’t have them the world would be drastically different. We would all smell, be dying of disease, and have salmonella poisoning from uncooked food.



Tribute to Mrs. Havener and Mr. Leckrone, Daniel S.

This song is about Mrs. Havener who is a real good teacher

Funny but lectures us a lot about stuff like a preacher

She has helped me a lot kept me from getting expelled

Saw good in me, basically knew I would excell

She had high hopes for me, saw that I would do well

She knew that I would get up and keep going when I fell

Can't forget about our homie who is teacher named Mr. L

Even though we had our problems and got each other mad as ----

We still hung tight and had a teacher-student bond that I've never had

He was a mind reader because he can automaticaaly tell when I was mad

I want to thank y'all for everything y'all have done for me

And when I become rich I'll send y'all money you'll see!!
