2005/03/21 23:09:00 - World Poetry Day
According to </a></b></a>meallanmouse 'tis World Poetry Day, so in my usual vein…

Chant for Dark Hours


Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Book shop.
(Lady, make your mind up, and wait your life away.)

Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Crap game.
(He said he'd come at moonrise, and here's another day!)

Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Bar-room.
(Wait about, and hang about, and that's the way it goes.)

Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Woman.
(Heaven never send me another one of those!)

Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Golf course.
(Read a book, and sew a seam, and slumber if you can.)

Some men, some men
Cannot pass a
Haberdasher's.
(All your life you wait around for some damn man!)

— Dorothy Parker

I got your pictures! Thank you so much, lovely. :D They'll be treasured, you can be sure. I've just posted a picture post myself. Can you tell I'm fond of pics? XD
