I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Paul Revere's Ride

Paul Revere's Ride
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

From the steeple of Old North Church in Boston a lantern was lit to signal the warning that the British were coming by land. Paul Revere William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescottrode out to spead the news. The Minutemen met the British the next day at Lexington.
