So this is Part II of my trilogy "From Dawn 'Till Dusk." I hope you enjoy...

--High Noon--


Behold! the sunrise has cleared, a distant morn',
let's pursue the final path and take this kingdom with a pawn--
no brawn--knowledge and wisdom trumps the strength of ten men,
so change your guards upon those city walls, and let this war begin--
that shadows thin--atop the sundial, it passeth away, we have
approached the highest hour, 'tis the zenith of day,
relay your message with the truth lest you provoke an honest wrath,
there's no time for playin' games, even the fools can do the math;

Sun is fading as we press on in this stifling heat,
some tactics never win the battle so concede your defeat--we compete--
on higher planes whose risen plateau's been reformed,
to the depth one can't imagine, through this power we adorned,
light so bright and this armour gleams, burnished bright to a mirrored sheen,
these guts leave glory in the muck this field of battles to obscene--unclean--
immoral values hold the price of peace at bay,
markets closin' in the ninth hour, stop hagglin' and just pay,
daylight waning as we press on to inhabit a land , that is sufficient
for a man to follow God to a plan--the tribe we call Dan--has
settled overseas the promise filled--until--the end of days when
twilight seals the final deal;

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
