    It is a tautology. The wicked prosper because they are wicked. Golly! Jerry, everyone knows that one.

    Maybe you should include the image from your signature too.

    The weird part is this actually got published somewhere, I forget just where. It's a Clerihew, a four-line poem about a famous person, in which you make joking remarks.

    I did this one following the big O.J. Simpson verdict:

    O.J. Simpson, O.J. Simpson—
    Just did or didn’t you do it, son?
    Don’t seem to matter now, either way.
    You were found “Not Guilty” the other day…
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Out of my sight please
    Put away these books
    Don't want to see these
    In any corner, in any nook

    The bones of contention
    Reason of every evil in this world
    Having words which slap you

    Put away these books
    Who can like these looks?
    The haunting looks which
    The title cover gives?

    I am through with their tricks!
    Don't tell me my poem doesn't qualify as the worst poem ever!
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    A really bad poem

    I am trying to make a rhyme
    to get through all this
    and I ONLY HAVE ONE HAND
    not the right one
    so I can not write
    cause I AM NOT left
    and it makes me sad
    to know I CANT
    never hold anyone
    in my arms
    (cause I dont have arm)
    and I AM AFRAID
    I m only a freak
    who try to make others feel
    as ridiculous as I am.

    On the subject of Sensitivity, let it be,
    Only thou should'st knowest
    It is I, I mock,
    not thee.

    except for a few random mistakes most beginning poets make, and a spelling error hear or their. all in all this has been freeing, as has been said above.
    "Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house, they are company and don't let me catch you remarking on their ways like you were so high and mighty."

    Sounds like a cue for a clerihew thread to me. Go on, Pen. You know you want to.

    you who I know are waiting could it be
    around this very next corner, waiting
    for the vision we both yearn so to see

    Come on a magic ocean of joy, my love
    Let us be united in a kiss of pure bliss
    For we have spent our lives waiting only
    waiting and now it has come at last to this!

    ****



    Come on. Don't be shy! Embarrass yourselves!
    In fact, no poem is a bad poem and poems come from the heart and they can not be bad at all. For heart is where life is nestled and in fact what heart comes upon is not a thing of flaws.

    I like your poem and particularly these lines deepen our feelings.

    Let us be united in a kiss of pure bliss
    For we have spent our lives waiting only
    waiting and now it has come at last to this!

    These lines have something what life finally arrives at, and every creature have to ultimately, and like plants coming to fruition, and women birthing babies. Who dares to say without a preoccupation these are bad lines?

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    I must say that writing bad poetry is really easy when u have nothing as inspiration except exams!

    On a sultry september saturday

    Annoyance came in countless forms—
    The sticky heat, mother’s scowls, undecipherable sums…
    Or just the street dog strutting too close,
    Glasses missing,
    Sister hissing,
    Or just not having enough money to lose!
    And this attempt at putting this vexing day into sentences
    Is made, by all these, timeless, priceless…and erm…worthless?

    Well, you did say "just bash one out and dont think about it too much"

    Yes. But funnily enough, it's got something, especially near the beginning.



    Oh bottle block capital description drunk money dugout belong
    'Tis a fine thing whatever it is said before derision intrudes to display
    Now for I go not where I know not however many said below baleful blow
    Oh Winny, for it is you, yes, and whenever we say it we also feel a tingling
    Smash the system, let it go, we are the ones who must rebuild this stinking
    crater, this monstrous abyss, this void, vacuum, hollow, bleak hole
    And yea, we shall, for we have the fortitude of both mind and spirit
    yea, yea, yea, yea, yeah

    Hold on there missy. I caught you trying to sneak this in as bad poetry. Now maybe if you had added bad breath!

    Now, here is the baddest! tehe

    All For You

    I have a million poems for you,
    Would you like to hear them,
    To know how much you touched me,
    That you were much more than a whim?
    I'm in love with The Vinegar Man and Mr. Tanner, but be careful, it could just as easily be you.
