That Ole Squatting Toad

I read the poem "Toads" by Philip Larkin yesterday. In another reading today
of that same poem I found a bit more insight. I realized that courage, wit, talent, and the ability to say "Stuff your pension!" is still alive.

DeAndre Ramone Way aka Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or Soulja Boy was on television this morning (Regis & Kelly -- ok you can quit laughing). Soulja boy is an 18 year old
American rapper, dancer, and record producer.

In September 2007, his single "Crank That" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. He first put his song on the internet and that is how his dream began. Dreams do come true. This young man is now a multi-millionaire. He is focused and soft spoken. He has received good press and bad (from Mr. T) but we has flourished with
a determination not to achieve success with profanity.

Keep on rappin' and kick that toad!
