Hark!

Only post in rhythmic rhyme
Not once but every single time

For this shall be a poet's thread
For those who like to use their head!


But first, I must a rule confide:
A random verse do not provide.

You must discuss and chitter chat
And all of it must rhyme like that!

Ah, tired I am.


But work must be done
And although it is fun

There is so much to read
And there's so much to heed
And it's all very deep,
But I really must sleep!

I am up
the sun is not.
To sleep some more
I'd pay a lot.

And the end of all our exploring

And know the place for the first time.

Finally
(not original, but, then, neither am I)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
Oh, how I wish he'd go away.

Do they HAVE to rhyme?? *pout*

A daring young diver named Pierre
Was enamoured of his instructor's derriere.
He caressed her leg
She bashed out his reg
And he gurgled out, "C'est la guerre!!"

Oh can you philistines not see
Rhyming is so 19th C?
We prefer our poets now
To write in free verse, and how!

This fashion for blank verse, and such
Is much more macho, and so butch
Unlike those flouncing men of yore,
Wordsworth and Shelly, never saw
A single thing to make them shout,
Or from the closet, to come out.

I say to you, who'd poets be
Who try to write, from A to Z,
Ryhme not, I say, stop it, desist!
Before you make this reader pissed.
Have some courage, and some pluck!
We really couldn't give a fig.

today my friends is Halloween
a day to be spooky and scary
often i'm not very mean
but i think of Halloween Kerry

(i know the meter sucked on the introduction and the poem itself is pretty bad....)

The thought of Kerry is awfully abysmal
his dearth of charisma is frightfully abnormal
his visage is hopeless and dreadfully dismal
strikingly dolorous and nigh paranormal

The one thing for me that sure would be scary
is that his offspring conceiveably could legally marry
with laws to protect the spawn of Kerry Kerry.
and they'd multiply and clone and continue to marry.

What becomes a legend most?

If he'd come to life and write a post,
We we know about Newton's boast.
If Hooke were here we would implore him,
Should we toast Newton, or ignore him?

The founding of the bulk of the world's nation states post 1914 is based on self-defined nationalisms. The bulk of those national movements involve territory that was ethnically mixed. The foundation of many of those nation states involved population movements in the aftermath. When the only one that is repeatedly held up as unjust and unjustifiable is the Zionist project, the term anti-semitism may very well be appropriate. - P*D

My Fellow Americans

The sphincters that rise
In front of our eyes
Are awesome and mighty and few

In the form of some guys
Who are spouting some lies
In a middle east country or two

Or thoughts we will prize
As we present a disguise
Our time for escuses is threw

Families is where our hopes will surmise
And the wings of our future take dream
All of these things come out of our eyes
And these things are not as they seem

Sometimes we live in a processed world
Just call me American cheese
People do care not about things
As long as we care and say please

God loves you and I love you
You always can count us as two
To fight on your side
As others deride
The terrorists mighty though few.

love, George

Alas, you are right:
This problem ain't slight.

All dressed up as rappers
Must still get some learnin'

Once upon a midnight dreary
I sat at the keys feeling mighty weary
My fingers hurt
My eyes were gritty
Despite my best, my tunes were chitty.

Feeling sad with eyes all bleary
I went out drinking with Becky Leary
She drank my scotch
She was a ho
Refused my kiss
She hurt me so

So if you're feeling tired and weary
On some drizzly midnight dreary
Heed my plea
And my advice
Don't go drinkin' with Becky Leary.

A Morning Poem :smile:

Bleary-eyed I did creep,
From a night of not good sleep.
Growing fear with every step
On guard for what I knew to be
(And didn't really want to see),
A ghastly blob of fur and food
On my toes, would not be good.
I heard the cat retch and puke
I did not want to meet that gook.

I found it not;
A hidden spot?
Or did I dream the horrid sound
Of horking cat and treasures found?

The Sad Tale Of Disposal Boy


I once knew a boy with
cameras for eyes
with a microchip brain
and clothes the wrong size.
Wherever he went, he was
taunted and shoved
when all he wanted was
to simply be loved.
His heart was gentle and his
smile was soft
but one day his brother
tossed him out of the loft.
And so ended the life of the boy
with the microchip brain
He became a garbage disposal and
lives in the drain.

The Lament of Captain Placeholder
(not mine of course but whatever, it's funny.)

On the stormy shores of Azeroth,
A silhouette did stand.
A brave and stalwart sailor
Who gave a helpin' hand.
Without fail, on every whim,
Which we did demand,
He simply smiled and waved his hand,
And sent us 'cross the land.

Farewell to thee, Placeholder,
Your ship has sailed to sea.
We'll tip our hats and pray one day
To be as great as thee.
Captain P, you'll never know the emptiness inside
As we sit ashore on Menethil, waitin' for a ride.

Time did pass, until, one day,
That silhouette did fade.
Where once we found Placeholder
Only scattered winds remained.
The stormy sea went silent
On that dark and dreary day.
But come along, my friends,
Let's raise a glass up for his name!

So when you find yourself lamenting
On that lonely pier,
Watching as the ships come in,
And dryin' off your tears,
Believe in what he stood for,
And I know that he’ll survive.
Inside our hearts dear Placeholder
Will always be alive!
I cite irreconcilable differences.

By the shores of Lake Superior
While I wondered dark and drearier
I sat lonely as a clam
Whistling Dixie to Uncle Sam
Suddenly there came a knocking
As if someone loudly socking
Who was it I cried?
Was it a ghost?
Could I sell you a subscription
To the News York Post?
