the "poem" meme. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
the "poem" meme.
After much thought, I've finally settled upon a poem to recite for the current meme:

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed,
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

That being rather the frame of mind I'll be in until at least the 3rd...

feeling: cautionary

The "post a bit of poetry" meme, which has been cropping up sporadically since about Thursday...

I hadn't seen any poem meme, but I'll bite:

From his den to steal he stole,
His bag of chink he chunk,
And many a wicked smile he smole,
And many a wink he wunk.
