I imagine that the day he was born, it was cold, rainy and gray outside. The hospital yard was full of ravens And beneath the floor boards of the delivery room, the doctors all swore they heard the low, constant thud of a beating heart.

As kids, my neighbor and I used to recite parts of the Tell Tale Heart aloud while throwing the baseball back and forth. Mad men know nothing! Oops, sorry, I didn't mean to over-throw the ball... You should have seen me, you should have seen the persuasions I took.
