I thought it was time for some high-brow stuff in here, so here it is, poem corner.

I'll start.

An elephant is a funny bird,
Its hair is pink and wavey,
It makes its nest in rhubarb trees,
And lays its eggs in gravy.

Your turn. Make it short and keep it clean.

Won't even try to compete with that James!


AGAINST THE RULES

I know this is not allowed
I’m not supposed to contact you until I sit in front of a stranger
And ask them how to untangle this mess
Watch their glazed expression at another unfortunate unfolding
Admit my failure to keep those balls in the air
Hear them fall around me with dull thuds

I cannot go through with it
It isn’t possible to remain silent when I feel so much
The worrying over separate blood supplies is entirely futile
We are together, in thought, in need, in understanding
No operation is separation enough
If there was a midnight solicitor I would be there

Nope. Though I agree it has that sort of sound about it

Right, here's my effort:

PORTRAIT

You may not be a shepherd but to you I am your flock
Obeying every order like the hands upon a clock
I follow in your footsteps over rivers over rocks
Sitting at the harbour, waiting for your ship to dock

And every time I look at you and all that you portray
I sense you hear me calling out your name across the bay

You’re wrapped up in my thoughts like a scarf around my neck
Doing all the things that I have come to not expect
People say you’ve secrets that your face does not reflect
But everywhere you wander, you create the right effect

And every time I look at you and all that you portray
A thousand words could not describe the beauty of your face

The Queen of Spades relies on you to carry out her tasks
For she is not the one you see in public photographs
It’s common sense to say that your face’s a work of art
And so you have been chosen as the girl to break my heart

And every time I look at you and all that you portray
No gallery is fit to put your face upon display

Not really no. I did make a website last year, but it's very amateur. Although I do like some stuff on there. I haven't updated it for ages though so a lot of my "best" stuff isn't there.
