(the last night)
There'll be many more days like these,
days for us to be glad in.
We'll be happy as ever we please
and happier, I imagine

Jack to himself: Been here all day and Ennis didn't say a thing about my new mustache. Grew it just fer him. Didn't even notice it when I laid one on him good. Damn thing itches all to hell.

Ennis to himself: What's with Jack and that mustache of his. Looks like a catapillar crawled up and died under his nose. Handsome face he got, goes a spoil 't, can't even see that mole he got above that mouth of his. Damn thing itches all to hell.

I'm loving them all, but this one really gave me a nice chuckle. I like how it suggests that, even though Ennis isn't at all pleased with his buddy's hirsute experimentation, he still loves him to bits and must still think he's the handsomest fella this side of the Rockies.

VERY STRONG STUFF


 Strange Fruit
Southern trees
bear a strange fruit;
blood on the leaves
and blood at the root
black bodies swaying in the southern breeze:
strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south
those bulging eyes and that twisted mouth
scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
and the sudden smell
of burning flesh.

Here is a fruit
for the wind to suck
 for the rain to gather
 for the crow to pluck
for the sun to rot
for the tree to drop:

here is a stange and vicious crop.


       --written by an Italian Jew in Baltiomore for Billie Holliday

Ennis: Pretty high class entertainment if you ask me.
Jack:For what it's worth

libertyangel sent me this French Jake and asked me to put some words to it. I thought of:

                      "Which side are you on?"
