Marillion is David Nelson Bradsher, a self-constructed Byronic Hero (or Zero), flawed but well-meaning, simple but paradoxical, and still a work in progress.

He graduated from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) in 1989 with a B - more...

The Seal of Quality committee has rewarded him with 5 seals.

More Than Meets The Eye


Appearing publicly, she's just a thing
of wonder, subject to the hectoring
of those with scarcely little more to do
than judge her cleavage and the blued tattoo
emblazoned, as a cross, upon one breast
(the left), although they say, She's doubly blessed!
She fields the question, Who enhanced your bod?
and quips adroitly, Not a surgeon. God.
The cynics scoff, surmising, Silicone!
Amazing tits like that are made, not grown.


Relaxing privately, she sports gray sweats,
forgets the catcalls, reads a lot, and lets
the jackals of the town's too nosy crowd
continue gossiping how she's endowed;
but little do they know, her breasts are real,
and so is she, this beauty from Mobile,
who'd sacrifice her size (and claim-to-fame)
to hear the young oncologist exclaim
in his emphatic drawl, "Miss Emily, 
I have the test results. You're cancer-free!"
