She Said series ii

you’ve been up since dawn
and now it’s damn near midnight
so if you don’t stop – you too will start weathering like black granite
and die from overwork as did Champollion while he was trying to decipher the Rosetta stone
but should you come to bed now, that shan’t be your plight

    thanks Jason, I find there are more interesting human stories in the histories than in most fiction that I’ve read

    I think it was Jean-Baptiste who said “the more things change, the more they stay the same” and that I find true too 🙂
