What would the first line of YOUR opus be? (Vanity)

Posted on 07/03/2012 12:49:54 PM PDT by Luna

There have been some dull opuses here at FR. It’s no wonder they’re met with such contempt and ridicule by other Freepers. No one likes boring. We like to be entertained, for crying out loud! Opus people, if you’re going to write an opus, make it worth our while.


TOPICS: Humor
KEYWORDS: opus

No, no. Just following on your post, that is how my opus might start out.

I'm good, hope you are as well.

Happy Independence Day!

You could PM it but then again it was so uninteresting maybe it needed to be pulled.

It got stale the second it was posted....

This wouldn’t make a shabby opus.

“The Federal Government, while but partially under the control of these our unnatural and sectional enemies, has for years almost entirely failed to protect the lives and property of the people of Texas against the Indian savages on our border, and more recently against the murderous forays of banditti from the neighboring territory of Mexico; and when our State government has expended large amounts for such purpose, the Federal Government has refused reimbursement therefor, thus rendering our condition more insecure and harassing than it was during the existence of the Republic of Texas.

These and other wrongs we have patiently borne in the vain hope that a returning sense of justice and humanity would induce a different course of administration. “

Plus ca change, plus de la meme chose.

You left out this part:

Texas abandoned her separate national existence and consented to become one of the Confederated Union to promote her welfare, insure domestic tranquility and secure more substantially the blessings of peace and liberty to her people. She was received into the confederacy with her own constitution, under the guarantee of the federal constitution and the compact of annexation, that she should enjoy these blessings. She was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery-- the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits-- a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which her people intended should exist in all future time. Her institutions and geographical position established the strongest ties between her and other slave-holding States of the confederacy. Those ties have been strengthened by association. But what has been the course of the government of the United States, and of the people and authorities of the non-slave-holding States, since our connection with them?

The controlling majority of the Federal Government, under various pretences and disguises, has so administered the same as to exclude the citizens of the Southern States, unless under odious and unconstitutional restrictions, from all the immense territory owned in common by all the States on the Pacific Ocean, for the avowed purpose of acquiring sufficient power in the common government to use it as a means of destroying the institutions of Texas and her sister slaveholding States.

First (or maybe last) line of my opus.

Sometimes it's better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.

I am through cursing.

After careful study of the Higgs Bosun particle

I have come to the conclusion that matter doesnt size

and that there is much more value in the motion of the Bosun

therefore I have chosen to move on

and use my now highly valued talents elsewhere.

Goodbye to those less talented here on FR.

If it were intentional, my opus would be:

      'Oh Rowty-owty tiddly-owty
       Tiddly-owty tiddly-owty
       Highty-ighty tiddly-ighty
            Tiddly-ighty ow."

I would then retire from FR and take up a garret in Lambeth.

Cheers!

The Author can't keep it in focus

They Whine and they Bitch

While they're making their Pitch
