In a loose paraphrase of a noted Englishman, "It is better to be thought a fool than to place one's pen to the page and remove all doubt."

In the interest of keeping this thread within the lines of the MC music> base, the following is contributed under the generous and syphlitic Mr. Seed's suggestion to launch a "Ship of Fools."

Went to see the captain, strangest I could find, laid my proposition down, laid it on the line. I won't slave for beggar's pay, likewise gold and jewels, but I would slave to learn the way to sink your ship of fools.

The bottles stand as empty, as they were filled before. Time there was and plenty, but from that cup no more Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a few Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools.

It was later than I thought when I first believed you, now I cannot share your laughter, ship of fools.
