My Master's VoiceI screamed at him "I'm leaving!"More Like This
He smiled and said "okay"
I said "no, for once I mean it
This time you wont make me stay"
But bags were never really packed
And that night in our bed I lay
The taste of blood on my lips
Still remained there the next day
I screamed at him "please stop this!
I am the Mother to your child
Baby, I know you have a temper
I know my ways make you so wild"
"But I promise I'll try harder
Not to push your buttons so much"
With that the beast resumed control

Tomorrow will soon be today
So choose every word carefully
As they might be the last you say
And they will echo through time
After your final shadow is cast
But those words and those emotions
Will have no place in the past
They'll take their place in tomorrow
And every day to the end of time
Your words, your thoughts and your wisdom
Will deviate us from straight lines
And show people there's another way
Peace and love can re-wire our brains
Show us how to avoid hatred
And from negative feelings refrain
Otherwise I can see suffering
But on an unheard of scale
Nations and religions will collide

The DNS blocking was the part of the bill which stated that if a website was suspected of having copyrighted material, even tangentially related, the whole website would be blocked. Even without that, though, the bill was still a horrible unclear mess.
The Obama administration finally stepped in on which side of the fence they were on, and thankfully for us all they were opposed to the bill too ( http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/13/obama-administration-responds-we-people-petitions-sopa-and-online-piracy ). On top of that, many prominent websites p
Another Sold Cover!Around the first of the year I did a cover commission for a publisher called Luminis Books, and I got to work with my amazing writer friend Jennifer Walkup http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6443859.Jennifer_Walkup It was awesome to work with such a talented writer! I'm still learning about this stuff so it's not the most amazing thing you'll ever see, but it was really fun to try something new. With each cover I do I learn more...More Like This
