feets: "Plug in our amps and we fill up our pants
With the music
Put our shit through the speakers and into the sky "

this is pure rock-n-roll genius.
I love you. I want to quote this always.
when are you touring Dodge City? I know some people that would make it work for you,

the boys i mean are not refined
they go with girls who buck and bite
they do not give a fuck for luck
they hump them thirteen times a night

one hangs a hat upon her tit
one carves a cross on her behind
they do not give a shit for wit
the boys i mean are not refined

they come with girls who bite and buck
who cannot read and cannot write
who laugh like they would fall apart
and masturbate with dynamite

the boys i mean are not refined
they cannot chat of that and this
they do not give a fart for art
they kill like you would take a piss

they speak whatever's on their mind
they do whatever's in their pants
the boys i mean are not refined
they shake the mountains when they dance

e.e. cummings

Okay...right...back in 1971, in grade 11, we were assigned a task. Write a poem. I hated doing homework, so I figured, fine...he wants poetry, I'll give him poetry.
Mine was the only one to be printed in the school newspaper. Go figure! :roll:

This....is the unedited version....


The Ballad of Johnathin Yhohkoh

To be what you are
And yet not be too close,
To try something new
But not be verbose.

Too sudden, you see the 'fries
Sizzling in chicken fat, fat, fat;
Through life's hard-bitten journey
Being cut by it's flack.

Ahead on the road
Is another like you.
Listen to his tales,
See their colour and hue.

As the moon comes over the outhouse
Slowly at first, but faster than flies,
That they are right, and you are wrong
It dawns on you as the moon now dies.

You return to your home (at least you think it is)
And she rushes out to kiss you.
Then she smiles and says she hates you.
So you beat her monkey, with the tie of a Jew.

"Hey, Jude!" he gargles, "Don't let me down!"
"Mummy's only looking for her hand in the snow."
Purple haze with bright lights envelope me
And I'm surrounded by Ono, Kyoko, and Dr. No Go.

Do a trip, do a trip,
On a merry-go-round.
Take a trip, take a trip
And go "splat" on the ground.

You leave me no choice but to break on through
And spend my last days working in Soul Kitchen,
While you and your own sail off in the crystal ships
Living on my Soul Kitchen's confection.

And at last he sees that the reason is
'Cause she's a (bump, bump) 20th Century Fox,
That the fault of the world is not his, but her's
'Cause she's a (bump, bump) 20th Century Fox,
Yeah, she's a (bump, bump) 20th Century Fox.

Hey, this is a pretty remarkable old thread, it's reply count is only one post over it's actual number of replies remaining, so it'll have a blank page every time the reply count hits a multiple of 25 that will only last until the very next post.

I know - fascinating - I was just taking a break from some recording.

Isaac


in the midst of all the anger you're spewing out, about how bad you're being tretead, you post things like this.
with a grinning pumpkin...
as if you had a sense of humor

as if everything was ok...

not only on this thread, but on other topics too...

you're not only manic depressive, I guess... you're schizophrenic as well...

how many voices do you hear in your head...?

Poems everybody! The laddie reckons himself a poet. 'Money get back, I'm all right, Jack. Keep your hands off my stack. New car, caviar, four star daydream. Think I'll buy me a football team.' Absolute rubbish, laddie.

"Stranded"

Oh boy this sucks
It's just my luck
But how was I supposed to know
There's no one home
None hear my moan
I called for help an hour ago
Stranded, Stranded
On the toilet bowl
Stranded, Stranded
Without a toilet roll

I want a garden.
I want a garden where the flowers have no flowers.
I want a garden where the trees have no leaves.
I want a garden where the tre-weeds don't even grow.
I want a garden.
I want MY garden.
I want a garden where there are no colors.
I want to water that garden.
I'll garden that with my tears.
Whilst that garden busted trees,
Busted leaves, water me with my own.


"Warren, do you know one called LeFrak City?" :wink:

You always wanted to know

who you were

and now

you know whom you are

Does it surprise you to learn

that whom you are

is pretty much the same

as whom you were?

Does it surprise you

to know that there never was

any more of you than there was

right then?

Even while your heartstrings

reached to the sky

and beyond.

Spleen (Ernest Dowson)

In the dull dark days of our life
We wander without a goal;
And the plague of living and strife
Eats worm-like into our soul

To the tune of sighing and tears,
A weary purposeless band,
For the destined desolate years,
We fare 'thro the Hopeless land.

On our lips are signs as of fire,
Our eyes are wild with despair,
We are burnt with a fierce desire
For that we know not nor care.

With loathing of life that is past,
With horror of days to be,
We shiver like leaves in the blast
Neath the breath of memory

In the tearing fangs of remorse
We are fain to fall in the mire,
And wallowing seek for the source,
Of the Lethe we desire.

Yet still are we troubled and torn,
By ennui, spleen and regret,
Whatever the depths of our scorn,
We cannot hope to forget.

O man, poor pitiful worm,
Foul nature's filthiest spawn,
As the helmless ship in a storm
So thou from the day thou art born

Je mets mon vit contre ta joue

lèche mes bourses lentement
ta langue est douce comme l'eau

Ta langue est crue comme une bouchère
elle est rouge comme un gigot
sa pointe est un coucou criant,
mon vit sanglote de salive

Ton derrière est ma déesse
il s'ouvre comme ta bouche
je l'adore comme le ciel
je le vénère comme un feu

Je bois dans ta déchirure
j'étale tes jambes nues
je les ouvre comme un livre
où je lis ce qui me tue.

'My Guitar' by Henry Gibson.

'My guitar, plays so sweet,
Really knocks me off my feet.'

Thank you.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Most poems rhyme
But this one doesn't

yes yes

when god created love he didn't help most
when god created dogs he didn't help dogs
when god created plants he was average
when god created hate we had a standard utility
when god created me he created me
when god created the monkey he was asleep
when he created the giraffe he was drunk
when he created narcotics he was high
when he created suicide he was low

when he created you lying in bed
he knew what he was doing
he was drunk and he was high
and he created the mountains and the sea and fire
at the same time

he made some mistakes
but when he created you lying in bed
he came all over his blessed universe

- Bukowski
