Song By Sir John Suckling

Why so pale and wan fond lover?
Prithee why so pale?
Will, when looking well can't move her,
Looking ill prevail?
Prithee why so pale?

Why so dull and mute young sinner?
Prithee why so mute?
Will, when speaking well can't win her,
Saying nothing do't?
Prithee why so mute?

Quit, quit for shame, this will not move,
This cannot take her;
If of herself she will not love,
Nothing can make her;
The devil take her.

Lucas Jackson - The Best

Hi, my name is Lucas Jackson and I am (or for you future people, was) a senior in 2014. My main cocurriculars are Model United Nations and Forensics, I used to play tennis but I realized that physical activity isn't my most talented area of expertice. I went to Erin elementary which wasn't the best but it could have been worse. Im a snarky self-centered narrisist with slight sociopathic tendencies. Not to much else to know.
