Reading Comprehension:


Of all the sickly forms of verse,

Commend me to the triolet.
It makes bad writers somewhat worse:
Of all the sickly forms of verse,
That fall beneath a reader’s curse,
It is the feeblest jingle yet.
Of all the sickly forms of verse,
Commend me to the triolet.

A Triolet by Banjo Patterson

Political Cartoons

Old English Prose
Facing Death, that inescapable journey,
who can be wiser than he
who reflects, while breath yet remains,
on whether his life brought others happiness, or pains,
since his soul may yet win delight’s or night’s way
after his death-day.

Narrative exemplar… and there’s plenty more 😉

As I stood at the edge of the lost city, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The city was a sprawling metropolis, its streets and buildings stretching out as far as the eye could see. The sun glinted off the skyscrapers, the light reflecting off the glass and steel. The air was alive with the sounds of the city, the honking of horns, the chatter of pedestrians, the hum of traffic. It was like nothing I had ever seen before, a city of endless possibility and opportunity.

But as I stepped into the city, I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off. The people seemed distant and disconnected, their eyes glazed over and unseeing. The air was thick with the scent of pollution, the stench almost overwhelming. The city was beautiful, but there was a darkness lurking beneath its surface, a malevolence that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

As I wandered through the city, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of alienation. I was an outsider here, a stranger in a strange land. I didn’t belong in the lost city, and it was clear that the city didn’t want me either. But I couldn’t turn back now, not when I was so close to discovering the truth about the lost city.

I am filled with righteous anger and burning passion as I contemplate the atrocities committed against animals in zoos, these “prisons of despair” where “innocent animals” are subjected to “torment” and “suffering.” I dream of a world where these “hellholes” are dismantled, and all “creatures” are free to roam and flourish in their natural habitats, free from the “clutches of human greed and folly.” I believe that it is our “moral duty” to ban zoos and to create a more compassionate and just society for all beings.

For too long, zoos have been justified under the guise of education and conservation, but these are nothing more than “hollow excuses” for the exploitation and torment of animals. These “death traps” are often overcrowded and poorly maintained, causing animals to suffer from physical and mental health issues. Many zoos also engage in unethical practices such as animal breeding and trading, which only contribute to the “suffering and degradation” of these beautiful creatures.

But the problems with zoos go beyond just the treatment of the animals. Zoos serve to reinforce a “toxic mentality” towards animals and nature, teaching us that it is acceptable to use and abuse these beings for our own entertainment and profit. This “toxic mentality” is not only harmful to animals, but it also has “disastrous consequences” for the environment and for our own well-being. As Mahatma Gandhi so eloquently stated, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
