Sex is better than Poetry [Jul. 13th, 2003|03:51 pm]
Peter Sheil
Two verses from a new Les Barker poem:-

If poetry was better than sex,
There'd be a torrent of spam sent upon it;
'Brazilian housewives read Shakespeare for you';
'Add an extra four lines to your sonnet'.

There's no: "You are not Long, fellow;
The opposite sex will not like you;
They want a man with a big soliliquy
All you've got is a haiku."

To see the whole poem (and another new one) go here.

:) (((((HUGS)))))

I liked the concept of women not liking you because you wrote haiku :) [as a haiku writer]

Did you follow the link to the poems? I liked "The Road To Tomorrow" very much.
