Today’s quote was suggested to us by Mandibelle please check out her amazing blog
The quote “In the end, we’ll all become stories.” -Margaret Atwood

In the end, we’ll all become stories
Foolish as bees, bustling with excitement
Circling agent, eccentric like the fleas
Entangled squeeze, glinting like figment

The need for a taste of chocolate
Jump for biscuit, not good for waist
In the willowwacks or the hood
If we could, have contacts

Fox is sitting by the window
As we all know, berries are good
In his boyhood, he’s always raced
He’s got good taste, as he would

Ripe papaya is such a healthy fruit
The girl is cute, as seen in here
That much is clear, follow the route
Water from chute, flowing from near

In the end, we’ll all become stories
As we sneeze, they’re all part of movement
At this moment, all part of symphonies
The day we seize, for our lives are brilliant*
