EDIT: I felt I might as well put the meme Thomas tagged us for here.
For it I had to:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences. (I'm skipping step 5... I don't know 5 people)
So you lucky people get something from Philip Larkin's Collected Poetry as it's sat by my computer for some reason. I'm doing lines rather than sentences too, because I'm rebellious like that.
"In foaming gulps until it smothers
Everything else up to the edge,
I lift the glass in private pledge"
I'm not sure this works as well with poetry. I suppose it is a bit of a cliffhanger though.
