I Think

Poetry

I cannot appreciate poetry, i really cant. I cant, I cant, I cant. I cannot read one without sniggering. For me every poem can be read Vogon style, it is a bit like Rule 34 for poems. I read one today, a long one, wrestled with it, turned my monitor upside side hoping it would make better sense, learnt a new word – puissance, thought a lot about it, felt like saying it loud, and generally had a terrific time. I know what you are thinking “Hey dude.. it is so easy to ridicule, if only you tried writing you would know how difficult it is”. Fair enough. I am up for the challenge, but be warned, you asked for it.I am giving myself ten minutes to churn out some top class poetry.. and it starts now.

May 27
——-
Oh May 27!
how I wish it werent may 27,
for yesterday it wasnt,
tomorrow it wouldnt,
and in four more days,
it wouldnt even be may
Oh May 27!

Some Haiku
——-
add five syllables,
then seven syllables,
five more syllables,

i feel like saying it,
puissance, there i said it,
woot woot woot woot woot!

Do You?
———-
Do you hear
the grooing screech,
the sounds of angels
munching bagels

Do you smell
the chicken fry?
the stinky sty?
Oh I die

Do you see
the fly in your soup
the pooping pup
I dont

Do you dream
of ducks and chicks
you must be a vet
or a junkie on meth

Do you feel
the big lump
under your armpit
now that stinks

Do you want
to hit me with a shovel?
I am calling
one-hun-dred.

Trrrrrrrrrrinnnnnnng.. Times up.

There I have done it, and isnt it marvellous. Now remember this, next time you write poetry, either dont show it to me or write something better than the stuff I have written in the last ten minutes.

Edit:

I couldnt get over the word puissance. Here is another haiku

puissant urge to
relieve myself is gone now
i wet myself, again
