With all the unpleasant violence and bitching in the forum currently I thought perhaps we could try raise the tone with some of our favourite poems.

I will kick things of with one that is perhaps apt.
I have always thought it is about the poison that can enter your life and ruin it.

The Sick Rose.

O ROSE, thou art sick!
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy;
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

Is nice Izzlekizzle, I think is modern form of our ancient Sumer love serenade:

The sun-god is shining
The sky is blue
Our camels are fucking
And I love you

Why when people are given the freedom of speech do they tend only to exercise the right to be vulgar ?

That's a 100 lines to Mr Scientist, IzzleKizzle and Gilgamesh
"I must resist the temptation to open my potty mouth in mixed company."

I shall persevere in the absence of others....Blake again my favourite poet.

THE CLOD AND THE PEBBLE

'Love seeketh not itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care,
But for another gives its ease,
And builds a heaven in hell's despair.'

So sung a little clod of clay,
Trodden with the cattle's feet,
But a pebble of the brook
Warbled out these metres meet:

'Love seeketh only Self to please,
To bind another to its delight,
Joys in another's loss of ease,
And builds a hell in heaven's despite.'

I dedicate this to you Tiffany. I am exercising my right to be poetically vulgar.

It is as of yet unfinished but I need a little more time and inspiration. I'm off for a pint!


The Hangover Cure

One morning in my chair was I
the night before drink was consumed
a pain so harsh I wished to die
to suffer this I now was doomed

to ease me on this painful trip
I began the ritual as standards require
a cup of coffee I did sip
and a cigarette I then did fire

as we all may well know
this combination packs a punch
to the toilet I did go
to eviscerate yesterdays lunch

the glowing white, proud it did shine
as franticly I remove obstructions
now the loo's fate was linked to mine
welcome to both our destructions

down on the bowl I then sat
my stomach pleading for emancipation
I emptied my chamber akin to a gat
and so began my defecation

spraying the bowl with grimy crud
I groaned with both relief and pain
down the sides it trickled like mud
in it's wake a repulsive stain

the ceramic now lay encrusted in waste
a swampy stew of sickening swill
not a sight of the finest taste
how it's pride I did well kill

No is such a negative word. Be positive, Tiff. What don't you like?
