I have a project due soon on comparing song lyrics and a poem. I am having trouble find song lyrics about want of personal freedom like Rita Dove shows in her poem "Daystar."
"She wanted a little room for thinking:
but she saw diapers steaming on the line,
a doll slumped behind the door.
So she lugged a chair behind the garage
to sit out the children's naps.
Sometimes there were things to watch—
the pinched armor of a vanished cricket,
a floating maple leaf. Other days
she stared until she was assured
when she closed her eyes
she'd see only her own vivid blood.
She had an hour, at best, before Liza appeared
pouting from the top of the stairs.
And just what was mother doing
out back with the field mice? why,
building a palace. Later
that night when Thomas rolled over and
lurched into her, she would open her eyes
and think of the place that was hers
for an hour—where
she was nothing,
pure nothing, in the middle of the day."
Do you know of any songs that relate to this poem? About personal freedom or dreaming of escape? No rap please..1 AnswerLyrics7 years ago
Me and my best friend, both girls, need an idea for our youth group's talent show. We have Monday - Thursday to practice and it will be on Friday on our beach trip.
We are open to skits and maybe some singing. Any clean and funny ideas welcome!2 AnswersTheater & Acting8 years ago
I have two abandoned kittens that are between 3 and 4 weeks old. I have been bottle feeding them every 4 or 5 hours each day. They are able to stomach quite a lot of formula now, so I tried introducing them to wet cat food. My boy ate from it for about 5 minutes and now neither of them will have anything to do with the stuff (I've tried giving it to them again)! How old should they be before they starting eating cat food? How can I help them transition?
Ahp :) thank you.5 AnswersCats8 years ago
Doing a sort of travel brochure for a project on Doctor Who; what are your favorite places he's gone to? Most interesting things he's done? I've been watching the show for a years now, but the report is for people who haven't. So please give me some interesting places, yahoo crew! :)

"from the dark and stormy weather,
another road block in our way,
but if we thought we were together..."
It's sung by a woman and I've only got an excerpt of about 30 seconds from a flipnote on my DSi.
I really like this song but I can't find it anywhere!! Any help appreciated. xx2 AnswersLyrics8 years ago
I don't drink regular soda and I rarely drink diet soda unless I'm out to eat and I get a Coke Zero/Diet Coke from the soda fountain. Other than that I have Fresca or some store-brand diet soda at home.
My friend told me that her aunt who is a nutritionist, said that you can lose 6 inches if you quit drinking diet soda. I don't know if this is true but it wouldn't be a bad thing if I quit drinking it and this happened. lol
Can that happen? How will I benefit from stopping my diet soda intake?4 AnswersDiet & Fitness9 years ago
I know BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate, and it's how many calories you supposedly burn a day if you do nothing but lay in bed. Mine is 1,562 calories a day. Do I need to eat over my BMR? Even if I am trying to lose weight? I try to keep it at 1420 a day, is this healthy?
I don't really know much about the TDEE. Should I pay attention to it? What does it stand for?
I'm just curious about these two. I hear a lot about them on a weight loss site I use. Any answers are appreciated!!2 AnswersDiet & Fitness9 years ago
I've got to choose a book for school to read, and I've narrowed them down to a few that sound interesting.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. (I saw the movie and I'd like to read the book.)
The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare
Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes
Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman
Here are a few others, but I'm not so sure about them:
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
War Comes to Willy Freeman by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier
They Cay by Theodore Taylor
Dragonwings by Laurence Yep
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor
Door in the Wall by Margeurite De Angeli (This one sounds very long to me by the description..)
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The Incredible Journey by Sheila Burnford
Which one do you think sounds best? If you have read it before, could you please tell me? :-) Thank you!7 AnswersBooks & Authors9 years ago

I had this as a vocab word a while back, but can only remember the def.
Putting a big long explanation or something you could carry on about for a while, in one short little sentence or a few words.
For the life of me, I cannot remember the word!2 AnswersAmusement Parks9 years ago
I flipped through the book at my library about a year ago, and haven't given any thought to it since but I've just recently stumbled upon one of the authors through his Youtube channell! It's sparked some interest in me with it, but I don't know much about it.
What did you think of the book? Would you suggest it to anyone?
Really I'm most concerned about what age group it appeals to. I'd rather not have my parents on my tail about it. :L
Any opinions about it would be great!!1 AnswerBooks & Authors9 years ago
I have been incredibly busy lately, and have forgotten how to do these problems. It's REALLY worrying me, because I know for a fact that this will be on my required state tests in 2 months. I NEED major help with these. I had a little trouble when I was first learning them but they were pretty simple, and now the practice is gone and I don't feel confident at all in them.
Here are some:
x/4- 2 = 10
5x + 3 = 15
x/4 + 3=13
-2x - 4 = -4
20 = 2x - 6
-x/4 = 1
12 = 6 + 2x
3x + 4= 12
x/3 + 4= 12
Could you pick one or two of those and explain them? That would make me feel so much better. Also, do you know any websites with these problems? Any games online I could use to practice?5 AnswersMathematics9 years ago
Could you explain the two simply? I am taking an optional online Spanish class, and I'm having a TON of trouble with Ser and Estar. I don't really understand the two.
Are there any websites with free games to help practice with these? I need any help I can get. Thanks!

I am making a parody to Rihanna's song, and I need a little bit of help. I need some more lyrics for the chorus. Here are some of the ones I have already:
We found slugs in a mudless place.
We found bums in a homeless place.
We found plums in a bowl of grapes.
We found drugs in a dopeless place.
I may or may not use all of them, but I'd like some more ideas. If you have anything like that, please share! :)3 AnswersLyrics9 years ago
That is me on the left. I want to know what you think of me when you see me.
A rate would nice, too. (: [1 being just terrifyingly ugly, and 10 being gorgeous.]
