"David, my darling, the Jabberwock stalks the
campus of Southwestern (Rhodes College)"
(Colyar's letter to David - January 1974)


"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."

"Jabberwocky" written by Lewis Carroll (b. 27th January 1832 - d. 14th January 1898)
Illustration by Sir John Tenniel (b. 28th February 1820 - d. 25th February 1914)

My Business Card
by David Saks
Take my business card
It's plain, not much to see
Maybe some day you'll find it again
And have nice thoughts of me
Keep it in your favorite book
Or underneath your phone
Right there on the table
Somewhere inside your home
Here's my business card
Please take it in your hand
I hope one day we'll meet again
Till then please understand
It's just my business card
Call me when it's right
But darling you're the only girl
Who can call me late at night

"Good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, the dead are all equal."
