    LIEgate and its fallout remind me of a few words by WB Yeats.

    To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Nothing

    Now all the truth is out,
    Be secret and take defeat
    From any brazen throat,
    For how can you compete,
    Being honor bred, with one,
    Who, were it proved he lies,
    Were neither shamed in his own
    Nor in his neighbors' eyes?

    Bred to a harder thing
    Than triumph, turn away
    And like a laughing string
    Where on mad fingers play
    Amid a place of stone,
    Be secret and exult,
    Because of all things known,
    That is most difficult.

    Here to soil that moment is Shmessy's Ode to Masserotti: :D

    To the tune of 19th Nervous Breakdown, by the Rolling Stones
    __________________________________________________ __


    When Tomase flirted
    with the dreams of certain,
    lofty, rich affairs

    He followed rotten sources
    through Gillette's concourses,
    like a horse's derriere

    On the horizon rose,
    a brave redeemer chosen,
    by the Herald's editors

    And he penned a rant,
    that had a sour slant,
    against his paper's customers

    You better stop,
    read it again,

    Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes,
    here comes Tony Maz's Nervous Breakdown

    Oh, who's to blame?
    That Specter's insane,
    when Tomase's sources never seem to work,
    You can count on Maz to act like a jerk
    oh pleee- -eeee- eeze...........

    Not bad! You and Yeats make a good couplet.

    Thanks, PE.

    However, Yeats' work was far better, plus he wrote it while being a reserve OL for the Pats. ;)

    Nice find, Pony.

    May I please change the title to: "To a Lazy, Disgraceful, Slovenly, Cowardly Pile of Fetid Garbage Whose Work Has Come to Nothing"?

    I sang your lyrics and the tune while I was reading your post. Righteous.
