My head is valuable enough for me
And last night, when I was gazing out past Jove
I saw a most peculiar little star
With a most peculiar little planet
With a most peculiar little race of alien life
That used a most peculiar form of currency
It was my head, of course
They used my head for currency
And if it is valuable enough for them
It is valuable enough for me.

They think us crazy.
We'll show them all who's crazy.

Well now you've done it
Once the haikus have started
Madness reigns supreme

With a defiant heart I stab at thee,
With haiku, you cannot oppress me.

and thus we are freed from oppression
brought on by haiku's sick aggression
so now we move on
now that haiku's gone
it's time for a limerick session

Tears flowed steadily
Time passed slowly
Heart held heavy
Silence echoed
Hope faltered
Eyes closed
Sun faded
Night called, invaded, and whispered
"Let go"

The great poet sat at his desk,
Entwining lyrical melodies
Of words and syllables,
Beautiful sounds with rhymes
And the cadence of a song,
Until finally he sat straight and said,
"Phlox. Nothing rhymes with orange."

[Barbara's poem]

That's probably the best poem we've had in this thread. But that's not saying much considering your competition. :P

Pain
The deepest of all pain
Pierces my body, my mind, my soul.
My hands, young and trusting
Reached out for yours
Only to be slashed at the wrists
By an unsuspected axe
Its edge glsitening
Though incased in the thinckness
Of human flesh and blood.
From deep within
An unsupressable desperate scream
Shreads the silence of the universe;
The thundering sound echoes
Throughout every galaxie,
Until each molecule separates itself from the others
And rests light years away from its origin.

Here
Silence
Reigns.
And the pain remains in the memory
Of a chance once taken,
A gamble lost,
A heart broken.

No tears.
No words.
No thoughts.
Just the emptiness
Of silent
Pain.

*shrug* I suppose it's in the spirit of the thread, but I have no idea where this one came from.

Sticks and stones may break my bones
And words may never hurt me,
But it is possible,
For one wretched second,
To hear another's words and think
With seething envy and all the eloquence of an imbecile,
"I wish I'd said that."

I wandered lonely as a Fred
and wandered into this here thread
'tis fine, thought I, for idle folk
to create japes and jingles in their heads
But its past midnight, thats no joke
so I'm off to climb into me bed

A well-know Indina man
One dark night last week,
Went to the cellar with a match
In search of a gas leak,

(He found it)

A Maine man read that human eyes
Of hypnotism were full;
He went to see if it would work
Upon an angry bull

(It wouldn't)
