In dire need of some Fresh Horses today.

If you were invited to a birthday party and the party-thrower had an open mic ready for you to say some of your favourite words, which ones would you choose?

It's a hard one ... there's so many great word formations out there. All made from 26 letters. Words tie the world together. And have the power to tear it apart.

Something from Nelson Mandela would be good. Or an obscure poem. A rap, an old love letter, a postcard, a philosophy.

Right now this second I would choose to read out this:

Don't believe the devil
I don't believe his book

But the truth is not the same
Without the lies he made up

Don't believe in excess
Success is to give
Don't believe in riches
But you should see where I live
I .. I believe in love

Don't believe in forced entry
Don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by
Wild thoughts escape
I don't believe in death row
Skid row or the gangs
Don't believe in the Uzi
It just went off in my hand
I .. I believe in love

Don't believe in cocaine
Got a speed-ball in my head
I could cut and crack you open
Do you hear what I said
Don't believe them when they tell me
There ain't no cure
The rich stay healthy
While the sick stay poor
I .. I believe in love

 Don't believe in the 60's
The golden age of pop
It glorifies the past
While the future dries up
Heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he's gonna kick the darkness
'til it bleeds daylight
I .. I believe in love

I feel like I'm falling
Like I'm spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside a name
a presence I can feel
I .. I believe in love

"God Part II" - U2

What would you choose, to read out at this fictional party?

Edenland's Fresh Horses Brigade

(If you are about to add a link in here that has nothing to do with my meme? Please don't. I am really stabby today.)

I was seventeen years old at that concert above. Neigh.
