Boiled Frogs (Historical Fiction Poem)Boiled Frogs13-8-16With wimple snatched from bared headI bend before my fetid fate;Hands tied in more ways than one.Flint flickers with a speckle of sparks,Kissing bare branches with baby flames;They catch their own tailsAs they climb to lick at my feet.The heat reminds me of baking bread,And briefly I wonder if I will bubble like pancakesOr merely burn like bacon too long in the skillet.Tears steam from my face like warm breath on a winter’s day,And the dirty tracks they leave behind only serve as a reminder:I am human;Born a babe in the woods,Dead at twenty in the square.I raise my face, defiant to the last;I am not owned by any manAnd will bow to none;Least of all a priest and flock,Who are so single-minded they wouldn’t know a witchIf she turned them into a frog.
Holiday Card Project 2012It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
