    Tired old souls
    protesting lifes delivery
    Nary a sound they make
    Tearing down mans will to live
    yet we must, for only to say we've won

    *edit* now what do I do with the extra 2 minutes and 45 seconds? LOL

    Horribly off topic:

    What are your laws about Poetry? (Rhyming, lines, etc.)

    I just let it flow

    When I have three minutes I rhyme
    OR if I start thinking of a poem and it happens to rhyme, I try to keep that going. Otherwise, whatever comes out.....
    Unless I'm deliberately trying to be stupid (like poems I write for my siblings on their birthdays) then I ALWAYS rhyme!!

    I have no laws of poetry. Poetry is what it is.

    And yes, sid, iambic pentameter!

    My teachers didn't like me in high school...It's a long story, but I was bored, and they were stupid, and I had no problem pointing it out to them in most cases. Repeatedly. I would take assignments and get "creative" with them, just to have something to do, and they didn't like creativity, they wanted sheep. Remember and recite, that's all my teachers wanted. Ah well.

    Ducky, that'll be a chapter in my life story, one of these days.

    Feifer, congrats on being a *published* poet!

    John: I'd LOVE to have you in one of my music classes... Just stay in your seat and don't play someone else's instrument... ;-)

    John,
    Thank you very much on the congrats, but it is not like I got paid for it. It was one of those contest things where my mom sent in my poem. They compile all of the entries into a book and offer you a chance to buy it. Everyone in the book is a finalist and then they narrow it down from there to runners up and winners. They are really just trying to sell something to me that I already own....my poetry. Ha!

    As I sit here reading the boards
    I know that I won't get bored.
    It does take me awhile
    to catch up with the pile
    by the time I look at the clock
    the time has flown by fast.


    Ha Ha! That stinks. My time was up and I couldn't get the last line to rhyme. I like all poems. When I try to write one, the majority of the times, I use rhymes.

    Wolf,
    I usually end up rhyming too.
