Jim Wright Posted January 30, 2004 Share Posted January 30, 2004 Squeeze! Squeeze! Squeeze! all the morning long; I have been squeezing my concertina untill I thought that I myself from all that kneading would soften up and flow like honey into it. I squeezed untill a strange sort of warmth had softly caressed me kind of like warm hands do on a cold morning to a cow. Trance like, I found myself unwittingly squeezing my wife mistaking her for my gental concertina,and, I might add, what an abounding and affectionate, friendly and loving feeling did that cause. Then at last I was contiually squeezing everone in sight not wanting to leave anyone out, all the while looking up into their eyes I would say,"Oh! my dear fellow humans. Why should we longer tolerate any social predjudice, or know the slightest envy! Come! Let us all squeeze ourselves into each other. Come! Let us all squeeze ourselves into the universal goods of life. Come! Let us squeeze ourselves into the very boxes and buttons of kindness. Oh! I would have squeezed the marrow out of that feeling; if I could I would Keep squeezing forever.But,alas, man must in all cases eventually lower, or at lease shift, his thoughts from that higher plane and attend to the troublesome grind of everyday life. But lets not be discouraged, but, be incouraged by thoughts of when we meet in glory and we see those long rows of angles in paradise, it will not be the harp that they are plucking. No! They will fill our ears with heavenly sounds, each with their hands squeezing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
