Re: Toil and succour

"Are you frightened?"
he heard the sergeant ask.
He thought a moment;
took a pull from the flask.

"No way Sarge"
he replied.
"We're in hell.
We've already died."

"What is hell like"?

Re: Toil and succour

Deposed from the throne
where will you go now?
Toil like a commoner,
sweat upon your brow?
Ride the underground
like sardines in a tin?
Can't afford caviar--
The question is: can you live on gin?

Either I'm more principled than you or I enjoy having a foot-print on my derriere. :badgrin:

Re: Savage and selfish beast

If you can understand a poem on first reading, "either you didn't really read it or it isn't really a poem." :doubt: Very presumptuous of her. Based on this definition not a single poem in the current issue of New Yorker is poetry. Isn't any medium defined by its contemporary craftspeople...

Re: Toil and succour

Why is there dust in my head?
Why do I languish in bed?
Bored and alone
I puff on a bone
and wonder
"Is it zero or zed?".

The question:Is it zero or zed?

Re: Toil and succour

I'm really not up to a menage-a-trois with Agnes and Ravi. ;) But I'll keep the ball rolling. Do you have the time? For those who treasure you, do you have the time? Are they brushed off like lint while you social-climb? Peacock-like as you preen; priorities all askew. Besides yourself, who do you l...

Re: Toil and succour

Mystery

Beauty queens wish for world peace;
wars rage; so many innocents die.
The mystery needing resolve, is
who put the pie in the sky?

The question will be "who out the pie in the sky"?

It's a bit cliche, sorry.
But I'm wilting under the pressure! :oops:

Re: Toil and succour

I'm a sport. I'll play even though I am merely in the shadows of Agnes and Ravi.

Lady Edwina Kruk;
why areyou so smug?
Bedecked in black and orange
like a mammoth lady bug.

What seems to be airs
put on by Lady Kruk
is, sadly, the result
of a shoddy nip and tuck.

Re: JOAN HOULIHAN Essays at Boston Comment

Thank y'all for the helping hand that is extended. Maybe you even enjoy some of what you help generate. Co...
