Poem, Links... Plink(s)?

Okay, this is somewhat of a lazy entry; I have a couple more important topics in mind, but meh. Basketball's a glutton for time. So... first, links to several interesting, enlightening, or smiling articles written in the past few weeks: Shelley, Chriscats, and Poetitles from Jessica Schneider, and Sargent (to my Singer), Critique, and Enjambment from Art Durkee. And yes, I am leaning on other people to provide interest for me this time. "Bite me." And yes, I did just quote someone. Anyhow, the whole blog-to-blog thing helps everyone in the end, so hey~ I suppose this post would hold greater value (what value?) if I posted something of my own, so here ya go:


Advice to the Stout

To those of a fearsome, Goliath descent
That retain a Davidian mind:
Do not ever venture to represent
A hunk of the dim-witted kind,

For power is broader than muscles alone;
Be large in your culture and wit.
With both is strength; it’s not unknown
Athena made Hercules knit.

By Neil Hester


It's not exactly Ozymandias, but good for a smile. Take care 'til next,

I can guess who you're quoting from. Oh dear, am I a bad influence? Heh.

Good Poem.

I love poems that actually rhyme well.

Or, with no ease at all:

Sir, your work always brings joy to mind.

A solitary thought, such as this, took much thinking to accomplish. I trust you'll find not as much difficulty on your own try.

With all humility,

Postscript: Ease as a double entendre.

Very funny Jeff. I'll try the zero-"e" poem eventually, don't worry~

Also, glad you all liked the poem: and Jess, I'm not sure what kind of influence you are, but I appreciate it. You should have kids.

I do have kids. Their names are Shadow, Oscar and Kiwi.
