From Kilroy to George Washington
And countless others through the years
By graffitti and knotched bed-posts
We leave our marks both far and near
On sign-posts and on street-maps
Or on lavatory walls
In floral script or furtive scratchings
We make our passoing known to all
Early drawings by cave-dwellers
Tell the tale of the hunt
As instinctively we try to communicate
With more than clubs and grunts
It does not matter if we're listened to
Only that we speak
That we recount what has transpired
From eons past , or just last week
In this way we prove existence
By the stories that we tell
If not to any others
At least unto ourselves
And for those who are to follow
We leave a trail that they might
So with your fore-bearance
I leave my mark on your website
From cavern walls to compiter screens
The message is quite clear
One imperative of our species
Is to say that we were here !

You have certainly left your mark. Good one! May we all leave a small mark of goodness to carry on!

Thanks , WhtDove
Although I'm sure it's a much smaller mark than Michael's.

So true, but I'm not sure about the grunting, but then I'm a lady..*g*

Hey Doc! I'm just floatin' around in the posts of old. Thought I'd leave my mark on the fine post. Don't know that you'll read this, but hope your world is still round and spinnin'. Peace to you my friend.
