Scenery

I emerge from a dense wood and remark with wonder at a solitary precipice some twelve feet in front of me. The terrain is steep and rocky but at the edge lay lavender bushes and a patch of grass. As I stand in the grass, I take my first look at the rays of a new day in the cloudless sky, which casts...

Re: William Shakespeare is dead

Willy Shaksper was a fun-ny man hyphens indicate a separation of syllables thus funny is fun ny. He im-proved English and did all he can To shake a spear at everyone's countenance. But my mind to his plays is ambivalent I’m looking for the English equivalent. So called because students do not tradit...

Challenging privilege

Long ago strode a man of confidence. When I came before his path I stood aside. Then I noticed that others did so as well. I saw the man of confidence yet again, The man again strode into my path. I dared to see if he would stand aside. He shouted obscenities! Nobody had the gall to refuse to move f...

Loss of Privilege

In every society lie the people of immunity They form the rules for the game. It doesn’t matter really if to their shame, They hold themselves aloft with impunity. What goes up must come down. Tall spires do crumble. The Ozymandias of today stands eternal, But tomorrow comes down through caring infe...

Re: progress and regression revised

after much consideration i have decided this poem didn't have the intended impact, and that i will be writing an all new poem on this topic that should solve these issues. It doesn't appear that there is a way to trash this, but really i understand the objections to this.

perhaps you could be more specific then, because at no point in the poem did i infer the issue of physical illness. it seemed more like a lab or coalition voter complaining about the election.

That would only apply if i agreed with your definition of christianity. The only time that it becomes an issue is when my opponents have no reputable authorities in their corner, so they turn to the "ultimate authority", and i take their word for it because the religious right shouts the loudest.

Re: progress and regression revised

i told everyone to look at the original poem for context, that should answer most of your questions. without knowing what the topic is about, it was never intended that the poem would introduce the topic. please ask more questions after viewing the original.

Re: Vote Conservative!

my point is that while i tend to agree with your statements, i do not have the same fondness for hyperbole as you do. You make the uk sound like a banana republic, but i've lived in and heard of places much worse.

Re: Reviews and Editing Posts.

i know it says not to post more then 1 per day, but often it takes several days to get another post. If it takes me several days or even weeks to get inspired, can't i post a few of my stuff if i don't plan to for a while after that?

People argue to me that Jesus isn't properly represented by the anti-gay movement. But i don't believe, and i don't care. So in this instance, i am assuming for the sake of art that the religious right is correct about jesus, and his hatred against gay's, and what that means. please see the origina...

It’s what the scions of the prince of peace can’t understand.

This decision should decide whether gays are to be a protected class or whether the country will maintain the status quote. It’s not ...

Dead Tired

Nothing is left but a dull ache. The lack of sleep ages me a century every minute. I shuffle about my house like a mummy, waiting to go back to my coffin. I wonder if this is what it feels like to be dead. But the dead, in their rest, never get this tired. for i greatly fear that should a spider inv...
