poetry request line, again!

March 23rd, 2009 (12:50 am)

Poetry request line worked out pretty well this past week, so let's do it again! Give me a subject, and I'll try to write a poem about it. One comment per person, one subject per comment. If you got a poem for your subject this week, you don't get to ask again. NEW BLOOD, I wants it.

ETA: OK! Let's cap it at fourteen; that'll keep me busy for a couple of weeks. If you see fourteen comments, wait till next time...

Are you familiar with the Thursday Next series ("The Eyre Affair," "Lost in a Good Book")? If so, I'll take that. If not, then James Bond on a slow day.

dance dance socialist revolution

After the "Horst Wessel Lied" one, you really need to do one based on the Soviet Anthem. Bonus points if you make it about the events of Rocky IV. :)

How about one from the Count of Monte Cristo from Dante's perspective. It is my FAVORITE book ever!
