The Good



    Something we all decide
    Blank-slate style
    Or something our forbears
    Fresh from the trees
    Evolved hanging with
    Early wolves?  We now
    Are inclined to find

    Their furry faces
    And wagging tails
    An immense delight.
    And if we don’t
    We are aberrant
    As are thieves
    And other deceivers

    Preying out of twisted
    Passions.  But each
    Generation stores
    Stories that the rest
    May see
    Turn
    And choose the good.

Are you the Lawrence Helm who used to post on Bladeforums? Someone resurrected a 2014 thread. Perusing through it I realized "you" (if it was "you") hadn't posted in a while, so I went looking for "you" if "you" are the "you" for whom I was looking.

Yes, it's me. And yes I haven't posted on Blade Forums in a long time. Were you looking for me for some particular reason?
