There once was a man from Nantucket,
Whose dick was so long he could suck it.
Said he, with a grin,
As he wiped off his chin,
"If my ear were a cunt, I could fuck it!"

OK, here's my latest. It doesn't have the same bite as some of my better stuff. I think I might be losing my edge.

I dunno SZ, I liked it. Might not be 'edgy', but sure is entertaining.

Here's another example of losing my edge:

A Particle
Solomon Zorn


I am a particle
Just a very tiny speck
In a vast universe
Of particles

I am a particle
Like all particles
I am composed of
Smaller particles

I am a particle
With unique properties
I can choose
I open and close the gate

I am a particle
Directing it's own motion
And directing the motion
Of other particles

I am a particle
In a group of particles
We interact
Forming complex systems

I am a particle
Responding to other particles
And assigning value
To those particles

I am a particle
Trading particles
With other particles
In need of a particle

I am a particle
Experiencing
The nature of being
A particle

I have never been a fan of telling others how poetry should be written. Art is simply that which works. I have read so much in my life of others and even seen people love some of mine that I didn't think was that special. To tell another poet how to write is to put shackles on them.

Mendacity, By Brian37(Originally posted at Rational Responders.com

 

The enticing  falsehood

Drenched  in delusion

Self inflicted

From false perceptions

 

That angel is no angel

That hero is no hero

It is you lying to yourself

In want of the non-existent

 

The scourge of thought

To be complacent

With mere emotion

With mere tradition

 

You are not

Looking for evidence

You are looking for

Excuses

 

Excuses to cling

To empty claims

Too afraid

To self examine

 

So you lie

To yourself

And in turn

Lie to others

What Happens In Vegas, By Brian37

When Dawkins spoke
Of meme theory
Upon the first time
Hearing about it

I scoffed
But be the issue
Religion or guns
Ideas and ideology sell

Why did this couple
Shout "Revolution"
Why did 9/11 happen
Why do they murder abortion doctors

Because marketing works
Play off of fear or vanity
Sell a utopia
In an imperfect world

Humans will futilely
Fight for Plato's essence
At the cost
Of compassion

Those evil cops
Simply eating pizza
Deserved to die
They were the bullies

Yes, the bullies
We trained collectively
To fear the worst
We are responsible

Absurd to expect
As some do
They should fight crime
With pea shooters

When we have A-R 15s
When 45s and Glocks
Infest every home
Made like Skittles

And you assholes
Have the nerve
To be shocked
At the body count

Have the nerve
To be paranoid
Of how well armed
Law enforcement is

When you yourself
Like a petulant child
Think Dirty Harry
Is Constitutional documentary

Your high capacity phallus
Does not impress us
Your deadly selfish
We've had enough of

These are not the days of muskets
You are no one's hero
If all you want to do
Is live in a bubble, concerned only with yourself

I wrote this poem waayyy back in high school.


Darkness, lust, tormented by the sight,
Blood, love, killed by the light.
Hatred, death, feelings going no where.
Killing, fate, love that's not fair.
My cage is small and cold,
Aging feeling old.
Please let me be free,
Let loose my mind and you will see.
What it's like to be me.
Let loose my soul that you have caged,
Old and battered but never aged.

I wrote this 8 years ago and still pisses some people off. I have no idea why. It's a love story...

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Submit, By Brian37

If the other tribe
Would just do so
If my women
Would just do so

My liberal brethren
So well intended
Lending cover
To the literalists

My qualm with you
Is your ignorance
That they read
The same words you do

Your kindness does show
And you know
Other labels
Can be kind too

Still not my point
Or argument
About any of
Your good intent

You skip some parts
Like they do too
And with the same god
Come to different conclusions

There is a source
As to which
Female cattle
They are treated

There is a source
Whence violence arises
And use words in a book
To thus justify

The violent ones
Are getting it right
Because back then
You defended your tribe

Back then
You obeyed the king
You dared not
Step out of line

Back then
Vaginas were fields
Men gave the seed
Girls were crops

The words in those books
Are hardly modern
Having nothing to do
With secular pluralism

The only peace
Holy books sell
Is peace through submission
Or burn in hell

an imperfection of art

a dream can show you lies
sorrowful good-byes
  from the woman you wish to forget
it can show you happiness
gentle waves of bliss
  yet seemingly poorly lit

still ..

it's worth to note
in each thought rote
  this woman you wish to forget
is that gentle wave of bliss
that shows you happiness
  and makes your heart offset

and ..

I know it could be true
this woman who is you
  is the one who holds my heart
a ring upon a finger
a soul that could linger
  an imperfection of art

I ..

could believe in this dream
an impossible scheme
  for you to marry me
yet there's more than you and I
in each tear that is cried
  from every touch that we breathe

still ..

a dream can show you lies
a glisten in one's eye
  a soul that seems offset
each beat of my heart
that won't stop 'til it starts
  from the woman I wish to forget
