Walt Whitman - Hush’d be the Camps To-day.

1
HUSH’D be the camps to-day; 
And, soldiers, let us drape our war-worn weapons; 
And each with musing soul retire, to celebrate, 
Our dear commander’s death. 
  
No more for him life’s stormy conflicts;
Nor victory, nor defeat—no more time’s dark events, 
Charging like ceaseless clouds across the sky. 
  
2
But sing, poet, in our name; 
Sing of the love we bore him—because you, dweller in camps, know it truly. 
  
As they invault the coffin there;
Sing—as they close the doors of earth upon him—one verse, 
For the heavy hearts of soldiers.

Being a mixed martia

Being a mixed martial asirtt can be very hard on the body. With grueling workouts we become overloaded with acid and recovery times are compromised. The only true way to combat this is by incoporating an alkaline diet to cancel out the acids that break down the body. This shake that Fred had developed is arguably one of the best breakfast shakes in the world that I have seen, tasted and used to aid me in recovery. This shake is for everyone who is tired of being tired. whether you need a boost at the office or at the gym. This shakes for you.
