A Tragicomedy of Poetic Verse

If you could please all forgive me, I am taking the time to wax philosophical within this post. So Friday night I went and saw the movie "Stranger than Fiction." This was a highly good film and I would recommend that everyone go see it. Take home made cookies with you too, because you'll want to eat them.The premise of this film, for those of you that don't know, is that the main character, Harold Crick, begins hearing a voice in his head, narrating his life in third person omniscient.
