The Anatomy of Man by TheRavensLetters The Anatomy of Man by TheRavensLetters
Ever human by any other name,
A beautiful, ugly, eternal flame,
Being to transcend this transient frame,
Man finds hope in what may come to became.

That's creative and well done. That's a shame the right leg is not whole !
(Will humans become sheep ? Not sure.
Maybe they, or most of them, already are. :lol:)

Hooray! another great piece of art!
but i have one question...
how does literature fit in with all the nasty things around it?

I guess what it means in relation to the imagery around it is this:

Although we're only human, we can use those traits and abilities which we do have for good (or for evil), and in doing so we may be able to transcend beyond our meager human existence.

Yes Max, we all know Jimi Hendrix played guitar with his teeth! He ALSO set it on fire and did LSD while on stage; blah, blah, blah. The question is, could he play while on LSD with his fingers severed like that?

I see the inspiration from Anatomy; i.e the fingers and toes!! One question, why does a monkey turn into a humanoid with bad posture turn into a humanoid with slightly better posture, turn into good posture turn into a sheep? Is it because we are all being led like a heard of sheep into the head lights of apocalypse?

Could he do all that without knees or elbows while cooking a monkey rotisserie style and smoking a doobie?

Yes, we are all evolving into sheep and heading straight for our own demise. Awesome headlight metaphor, btw.

Lol, smoking a doobie. While screaming, hiccuping, laughing hysterically, poking himself, having a seizure, etc. ...

Why thank you. I was getting confused between sheep and deer, you know, deer in the head lights, we'll also be deer! Deer and sheep.

(The only reason I'm responding in this is because I was asked, Cassandra)

YES, HE COULD! (ignoring the fact that he's dead, and the fact that he stopped the stage tricks so that people would pay more attention to the music than the show):P He could probably do it behind his back, too!

*done*

Very good!
I like the witty elbow, thumb, and knee :P

The spoon of greed, the fork of consumption, and the knife of hate... hmm... :noes:

Lol
Always the critic...but what would you be without you elbows, thumbs, and knees? A disfigured freak who has to use his teeth for everything, that's what! So ha.

The spoon of greed, spork of consumption, and knife of hate are cousins to the more well known spoon of truth, fork of justice, and spork of deception.

Sorry, Cassandra... Can't help it... Tried to resist...

JIMI HENDRIX PLAYED GUITAR WITH HIS TEETH!!!!!
(and was good at it, too. He also played the national anthem that's on that mountain dew commercial with the three flavors and the voting and all)

Now that that's out of the way.. Maybe I should make the eggbeater of relation...

And at that moment, Cassandra's life was complete. She lived the rest of her days in bliss, apathy, and ignorance. Nothing could bother her now.
