    Hey, I missed the new thread creation. Oh well.

    I have to write a poem as part of an English assignment, and it has to be at least 12 lines, and haiku and limericks are banned. What am I supposed to do?

    wing it.
    I did that once, and said poem became part of a novel I wrote.

    Give a description of an event in your life, a particular person, a place you enjoy while using a rhyme scheme and/or alliteration? Express your dislike for the structure of the assignment?

    Whenever I write poetry, it turns out crappy. Probably because I hate sentimentality but I can't help but be that way anyway. Contradictory? Maybe just a bit. ;)

    I just pretend to be sentimental, and it works.

    Oh, an this poem is part of an assignment where I have to analyse a partner's favourite song choice in detail and find rhetorical devices in the song and it has a visual component and blah blah blah blah I hate it with a passion.

    The poem can be about "your partner, your partner's song choice, the meaning of the song, your experience with the project" or anything else tangentially related, basically. And the only restrictions I can see are "12 lines, no haikus, no limericks".

    Oh, and I can be quite good at fake sentimentality/meaning when I want to be - I call it "Brain Barf", because its like I upchuck the most philosophical parts of my brain onto the page and reword it to make it look nice.

    I love sentimentality, but somehow that just makes it so much worse. I refuse to inflict Pyrian poetics upon the populace.

    Ergh, poetry...

    Just hope you don't have to read "Sometimes Gladness" by Bruce Dawe. Or I will pity you like I pity a man who's been set on fire and hit in the crotch with a sack of ice.

    You can't have a twelve line limerick or haiku anyway, so no worries there. Limericks are usually just 6, if I recall...

    My partner is a silly git
    observing this musicianship
    on par with a wet blanket,

    It makes me retch so
    his poor discernment
    in how he tunes his radio

    If he had any taste
    whether palate or ear
    he'd spit out this waste

    Dashing it across the rocks
    and heading to the music shoppe
    for something to truly take off socks



    A Pyrian Poem would not belong
    upon my funerary pyre

    Nay, 'twould far better be for it
    to adorn a tag, wrapped in pink

    Emblazoned with a salmon
    or a cute light lime

    Perhaps worn about the collar
    of a pretty little kitty

    Tabby I think, or at least a ginger
    purring all the while in hand, and

    Presented to a dear heart
    or at least an appropriate sissy.

    psh... by that logic, Giant Reptiles FTW.
    besides, if we left this planet for a year for whatever reason, Nature would easily reclaim a lot of the stuff we think we have "dominated".

    and that's jsut a year. imagine if it was 25 years, or 100, or 5,000...

    But the same is true of any species.

    However, we currently rule everything. That's no mean feat. (And as all giant reptiles are dead, we know how to control Saltwater Crocodiles (or we did when Steve was here...), and we know to steer clear of Hippos... we just rock.)

    But we're boring. Aside from the whole "Civilization" thing, we've got nothing cool. Even Ravens can use tools, and fly. He can't even vomit out our stomachs. Plus, we've only been here a bit. If we can hold on to the planet without ruining it for more than a million years, then I'll be impressed.

    except the fact that Mother Nature > everything else [ > PS3, because that joke never gets old ]

    ultimately, if Mother Nature wants something gone, she'll take care of it. Humans merely are an *insert antonym for catalyst here* against her.

    I mean, right now, it looks like Giant Pandas are going down. sure we can probably slow the process, but ultimately, now that they're on MN's list, they won't be here for long.

    But it's true, physically speaking, we're the lamest species on earth. We're the only ones to stand up wonkily on two legs without a tail, and though we're the smartest, we kill more of us than other animals do.

    But that's only because we're woefully overpopulated. I'm pretty sure rodents are the only mammals that outnumber humans. I'm not considering birds (Infinitely cooler than mammals), fish or insects, though.
