Winona Ryder
No amount of lying will reveal the name
Of the man reclined in stupor,
Imbibing the soot of the baked leaf.
Stranger things will happen when
Taking without responsibility.
It's really a question of ethics.
Can I? Will I? Should I?
I can't recall...
It seems that I've slipped.
I've gone down, upside-down.
I've taken the boat to no where,
A field trip to an empty museum,
A mausoleum full of broken statues,
Wreckage of the dreams of children,
Lost to the dust of time, space
And unhappiness.

Sir Walter Raleigh, English explorer, writer, poet, politician, soldier and spy, was executed on this day in 1618.
