“We are sitting on Precipice about to Fall and may soon join Dead Meat and Road-Kill. It’s that serious.”
Bite the Dust, By the Farm, and Kick the Bucket started to cry, “Tell us it isn’t so.”
We Don’t Stand a Prayer stood up for a short summary of their pitiful predicament.
“We need Last Ditch Effort to save us. We need When Push Comes to Shove to rally us. It’s now time for Make it or Break It to come forth. We can’t let Belly Up win again. Human writers are being told we ‘re taboo and Steer Clear of Trouble is convincing them to listen.”

They were meeting at Woodstock, hoping to regain their past fervor, and show generations to come that It isn’t Over till the Fat Lady Sings. There were lots of fat ladies there, and no one was singing.
It was the Comeback Kid’s turn to speak and the Glass Half Full Clan stood to their feet.
“It’s time now for Light at the End of the Tunnel to be taken seriously. Every Cloud has a Silver Lining has waited for this day. Don’t Burst our Bubble is beaming and No More Doom or Gloom is joining This is the Dawning of a New Day to celebrate. “

I know that Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow is our sweet and sour truth. But we must know that Get a Life has been right all along. The truth is We Are Books with Old Covers has been our Unsung Hero. Life is Not Fair has been saying this day would come, and We Cannot Heal what We Do Not Acknowledge needs to be our new mantra.
Can we just move on and find Get a Life? What’s Done is Done, are you here? “
As he stood up, the crowd started to stir and they sensed this gathering had served it’s purpose.
“Time will Tell has always reminded me that When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade always had a point. We always had Fifteen Minutes of Fame with us to remind us how short profound sayings can be. Let’s let Bury the Hatchet loose now to Set the Captives Free and stop Beating Dead Horses. The time has come to Let Dead Dogs Lie out of the doghouse. ”
