what did vincent say when he lost his car in the parking lot
“where did my van gogh”
the correct pronunciation of “gogh” is “goff”, you uncultured swine
LMAO the thing I love most about that pretentious-ass correction is that they actually got it wrong. Goff is only for anglophones who can’t pronounce the hard Dutch G tbh.
A young boy caught a beautiful bird.
It shook with fear, chirped many a word:
“You don’t feel pity that I’m so small,
For just like you, I’ve not grown tall?
I’m my mother’s only heir,
I left her sick in our nest so bare.
The ground is covered deep with snow,
There’s no more brown or green below.
Poor me, I suffer day and night
And find no branch that isn’t white.
The weather’s changed to a nightmare,
We’re dying – famine’s hard to bear.
Inside my heart you’ve put a stone,
But what of my mother who’s ill, alone?
I’ve searched and foraged for two days,
Fetched her neither seed nor maize.
Ah! ‘Twas bad luck that I have wrought,
And now within your snare I’m caught!
My mom longs for me, as yours must pine.
If I don’t flee, she will decline.
Poor us, why do you plague us so?
Why don’t you stop this, let me go?
I have a soul, and I want to roam,
To cry, to play, to sing… fly home.
I who lack a human brain,
Who have I wronged? Who’ve I caused pain?
Leave me in peace, don’t torture me,
Because God sees us, all and thee.
And he likes the good, rejects the wrong,
Loves tenderness, condemns cruel throng,
Wants righteousness and wisdom’s deed,
Casts out the villain and the greed.
From God I was born unfettered, wild;
Why do you keep me captive, child?”
The boy heard well the sweet bird’s plea,
And weeping, kissed it, set it free.
