Well, Brooks, at least yours isn't about committing suicide.. (excuse the suicide and love undertones. I just finished reading Romeo and Juliet for about the third time in school)

This beautiful poverty
Births itself in the burbs of California
Where green jackets and red collars
Mingle with the steady pulse of commerce

Skunk-like, it hangs with the denim and hemp
in the air around an acid party
"Happiness is only a toke away"
Quoth the colours.

Carried by the reformers,
This paramount movement
Loses the masses and gives them only
"Flower Children"

New word: lisp

Stratchick 02-20-2003 10:45 PM

He's got a lisp
So they push him down.
He picks himself back
Up from the ground.
Just keeps goin'.
God, family, friends
Out of school,
These things mend
The heart that hurts
Because some jerks,
Who don't know him,
Try to drive him beserk.
If they got
Deep inside his head,
Then they'd be sorry,
They made him wish he was dead.

Word: Guys

Skeeter 02-21-2003 04:23 AM

The cards, pinned to the wall
Reminding me of duty, adjusting to the life
I once lived

A baseball, sitting in its stand
Glory days now passed, resigned to defeat
I once lived

A picture, stark against its frame
Guys I once knew, long forgotten and ignored
I once lived

A wallet, forlorn on the desk
Brings me back to reality, unwanted and forsaken
I now die

Word: fine-tooth

Jeff 03-01-2003 04:05 PM

I'll slice your throat with my fine tooth saw
I'll overthrow your gatling reign
with millions of trench footed soldiers
they'll give their life for my cause

and you'll use your leaflet bomb
and you'll deny relief to my women and children
and you'll slice me up with barbed wire
and you'll choke me with mustard gas

the union must end here
and to think we once shared a room
you slept beside me until you attacked
undisturbed, unprovoked, unjustified

intelligence should have seen this coming
every time we share a grievance
your comittee shuts us down with an iron fist
and we always pay the reparations

my people will see you dead or be mowed down
they'll cut you up with the saws and rusted hatchets
that you issued to them,
to cut down the trees in our parks

you are too used to our surrenders
you will let them fly on wings of angels
with honor at their feet, over a mile of no man's land
to dissolve in a sea of lead

you are convinced that we are only rebels
that our cause is unjustified
but you will have to live with the blood on your hands!
you will sit at judgement nightly

for I am sure you must still love me

word= bunker

Jared 03-01-2003 09:09 PM

Bunker/Good Weather for an Airstrike (cont'd)

What a beautiful airstrike
(Women and children first)
Like acupuncture or a stab wound
To mend my shattered body
What a beautiful airstrike
(Into the bunker, folks)
Like aromatherapy or asphyxiation
To choke out every grudge

Jared 03-01-2003 09:10 PM

phrase: Swallow the grenade

"BrooksB" 03-02-2003 10:20 AM

Pick it up off the floor.
Time won't abolish your abhorrences.
Neither will I.

Watch with your willing eyes
The torment that passes
And devours our naked bodies.

Evacuate the pin.
Our misery is over.
We all falter.

Eat us all with hope
That one day we will recant
This awkward moment
In some delusional past-life.

Swallow the grenade.
It won't help to run.
Whimper away.

Time is now dulling
And drawing out
But we all stand and perceive
The spreading apart of thine open flesh
As it bathes us all with a precious passion.

phrase: bite me

tropicana 03-02-2003 09:25 PM

"Bite Me"

That phrase,
Yet to be replaced by more sour words,
Rings out across the battlefeild playground
Soon to be obliged by
An unruly defender.

That phrase,
Growing into stronger language,
Engraves on school hall walls, embarrases
Ashamed victims
Who have outgrown
Their early wrath

That phrase,
Begun at a tender age,
Grew to be more than an insult,
More like a mantra of abuse.
Childhood curses become adulthood vernacular;
From the mouths of babes
To those that soap cannot clean.

New word: Clavier

Skeeter 03-02-2003 10:51 PM

Harsh, discordant, the sound assaults my ears
Grown into clavier, supported by the whining horns
They call it music.
A light pluck interrupts their reverie,
A switch is flipped and all is silent
But she plays my eyes,
Stroking softly, until light chords emerge into one beautiful song
Where she is the musician and I am merely the instrument.

New word: rosewood

Stratchick 03-08-2003 10:33 PM

I touch the rosewood box.
Memories flood back.
I smell that scent.
Open the box a crack.

Inside Mother's pearls,
Inside Father's pipe,
Remember days of old
When youth was ripe.

Read the old books,
Things once wrote,
Sad peoms, funny ideas.
Found an old love note.

Lost in the old world.
All because of the rosewood box.
So many memories
It unlocks.

Once it closes,
Back to modern days,
And I leave
The old maze.

Word: Reality

Jared 03-09-2003 01:26 PM

Blatantly forced
And seemingly holy

So that is reality?

Twisting the corners
Of a damaged mouth
Locking your jaw
In a wistful position

That obvious grin?

A smile that sings
Like a motion picture soundtrack
For a dramatic porno
Or perhaps a cartoon

I'd rather hallucinate.

Jared 03-09-2003 01:27 PM

word: remote control

"BrooksB" 03-09-2003 10:32 PM

I've dreamt of a time
Without the vices of modernity
When all will truly have freedom
Because now we have not enough.

I've dreamt of a time
Without the vices of government
When all will truly have freedom
Because now we have none at all.

I've dreamt of a time
When we all put down our remote controls,
Our symbol of tyranny,
Our shackles of reality.

When will we wake up,
And realize we are just like the television?
We have unlimited potential,
But we always do what we're told.

I've dreamt of this time;

word: compact

Jeff 03-10-2003 07:17 PM

lets make a compact
here and now before ourselves as witnesses
that we won't give in to the government
they don't speak for us

we'll run from our sentences
and make a new, honest life
doing something for the people
doing something honorable

and we'll lie if we have to
and we'll kill to keep this secret
we won't submit to imprisonment
for a crime we didnt commit

we won't submit to imprisonment
we'll kiss her bloody lips
and suck down her saliva
we'll have her Jerry's kids
