A bunch of kids found one of my so so bad poems online and used it as a class project, a bunch of tweets came at me from tweenies asking my name so they could reference me in their work, too funny!

I think the Internet 2.0 version of Andy Warhol's famous dictum is "15.5 nanoseconds of fame" lol.

nope they're bad on purpose because i dislike most poetry so i write them badly to voice my poetry annoyance


sample...

How fast does a fly fly in the high sky?
How long will a bee be working on the honey honey?
How much scratching can a bear bare?
Does anyone even care?

only time i attempted a serious one was about my childhood...

House, House, House, Home

hungry, wet, silence, cold, empty, dark, alone, ignored
hit, pain, broken, crying, drugs, mum, boyfriend, lying
raw, meat, rank, sick, doctor, xray, plaster, trip


eight, scary, anxious, fights, noisy, chaos, paedos, nights
knife, hidden, pillow, sleep, stabbed, hand, man, creep
truent, loner, safe, clever, aggression, trust, NO, never


flat, empty, new, MINE, cooking, shopping, working, fine
pubs, clubs, fun, youth, religion, study, Islam, truth
ummah, Rina, shahada, friend, wali, marriage, single, end


man, weird, wife, weirder, funny, new, mum, nearer
aunties, uncles, mum, clean, du'a, mending, healing, dream
trust, man, love, release, home, children, life, peace





and when i got divorced a year later...




I took a breath and could not breathe
My hopes and dreams began to freeze
my heart stopped beating as autumn leaves
fell silent at my feet


It's over...and the D word that I dread
is 7 glowing neon letters in my head
announcing marriage is now dead
can't think, can't sleep, can't eat


My trusted guide round every bend
My hope of learning deen from a friend
My life, My future all at an end
I wish we didn't ever meet


This day of days when time stood still
and breathing stopped and eyes would fill
with tears, as marriage never again will
be something I repeat

As somebody who loves poetry, I actually think those show a lot of promise, Poppy. They really struck me at the heart.

I think Ogden Nash would be pleased:

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is 'specially fond
of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups
it bottoms ups.
;D
