Four Leaf Clover

Postby Bwis53 » Thu Jul 12, 2007 2:02 pm

I just found one lonely little four leaf clover, under the tiny, cheapo Christmas tree, I've been nursing along. Should I press the clover, or let it grow til it starts wilting?

What's the street value on a quarter-ounce of four-leaf clover?

It's never available in large quantities. But if you're lucky like Bswiss, you smoke what you can find.

I got a four leaf clover.
It ain't done one single lick of good.
I'm still a drunk and I'm still a loser.
I'm living in a lousy neighborhood.

I got a real live horseshoe,
And I hung it upside-down above my door.
But it don't do nothing to impress you,
So I don't know what the hell it's for.

Why don't you come over? I'll show you my four leaf clover.
Who'm I trying to kid? I'm not the kind of guy you'd go for.
I got a four leaf clover, but I ain't got no hope of
getting you.

I got a lucky silver dollar.
My granddad gave it to me now he's dead.
At times like this I wish that I cound join him,
It might just stop this pounding in my head.

Why don't you come over? I'll show you my four leaf clover.
Who'm I trying to kid? I'm not the kind of guy you'd go for.

I just started dating this gal. One of the things I like about her is that she's really, really sharp. And she pays attention.

At one point on one of our first dates I mentioned that, as an English Lit major, I studied poetry almost exclusively.

So she comes back from her vacation and shows me a book that she picked up at a junk shop - a collected works of Shelley published in the 1870's.

One of the best papers I ever wrote concerned The Cenci, Shelley's one play. It often gets excluded from collections of his stuff, so I check the table of contents; sure enough, it's in there.

I turn to the page where The Cenci begins. And there, pressed between the pages, is a four-leaf clover. Over the decades it had stained the embracing pages with a beautiful, delicate pattern - the shadow of its vitality, etched into parchment.

I'll just add this - after some of the shit I've seen in my life, I no longer believe in coincidence.

I thought I'd maybe make a magic brew out of it The clover in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true.
