New Milestones

Today is a new milestone.  This completes six months of doing a news print poem EVERY SINGLE DAY! Can I hang in there for another six months?

Today is also a milestone of another kind.  Today, for the first time, I took massive liberties with the poem.  I did a lot of reordering.  I had to.  There was no other suitable story, and I just couldn't make the poem work without changing the order of the words.  Besides, it was an important story and I try to do a poem for all important stories.

Also, I think I added the word "three."

Other than that I followed my rules.  Most of the time, I took whole phrases from the story.
