Famous quotes containing the word lord:

    I am a cowboy in the boat of Ra. Lord of the lash,
    the Loup Garou Kid. Half breed son of Pisces and
    Aquarius. I hold the souls of men in my pot. I do
    the dirty boogie with scorpions. I make the bulls
    keep still and was the first swinger to grape the taste.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
