In honor of this, the United States of America's Day of Independence, (WARNING: COMPLETELY AWESOME WEB DESIGN), to celebrate our liberation from the lurking British menace (WARNING: PHOTOS OF WMDS) with more than a little help from General Lafayette and his noble band of cheese-eating surrender monkeys (WARNING: NSF ANN COULTER), I give you drunken foreigners that most American of July 4th traditions: The Sonnet Project. And it's written by one of our very own.
A professor of writing once told his class that a good project would be to write a sonnet every day for a year. It was absolutely impossible, he said, to write 365 bad sonnets in a row. I've always wondered if he was right.What does it have, you ask? Well, how 'bout two-legged dogs? Or maybe country girls in black lace thongs and boots? Or how 'bout vengeful gods or evil supervillains? That do anything for you, Frenchy? No? Then GO BACK TO DOOTCHLAND WITH ALL THE OTHER COMMIES! Who's running it? I leave it to him to decide if he wants to out him, but I think there's some really good stuff here and our more poetically-inclined monkeys might enjoy a daily dose. Please, no requests for Freebird.
