I was idly playing videos on You Tube recently and I came across Dean Martin’s Roasts from the 1970s. A traveller once got stuck in the sand On the fiery edge of Jou-jou land; The Jou-jous they confiscated him, And the Jim-jam tore him limb from limb; But, dying, he said: " If eaten I am, I'll disagree with this Dam-jim-jam! WILLIAM AYTOUXt " Wherefore starts my bosom's lord? Bullox! (Double Limerick) "I don�t know about you, but I�m not buying Jesse James� (or Tiger Woods�) rehab ploy. ..." "We get headlines each March from the press: Are Health Studies Making Us Sick? "Here we go again: Yet another scientific study says many of us should have ignored a previous study. ..."

Exit sortis (Horace), but thou art still on hand. T' other you may see in tin, And the fourth a box within. Adair Fitz-Gerald (1859–1925), The Zankiwank & The Bletherwitch, 1896 Our poetry in the eighteenth century was prose; our prose in the seventeenth, poetry. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827 The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth. ~Jean Cocteau Why should I thus feel all on glow and flame, Or strive to mark what I can never name; Could but my pen and ink describe as clear, As I that awful grandeur now feel here. [P]oetry, that pearl of intelligence and life, reflects on our brow some pale rays of the glory that has faded away from it. ~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847) Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose-petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo. ~Don Marquis There can be poetry in the writings of a few men; but it ought to be in the hearts and lives of all. ~John Sterline [P]oetry... folds its wings at the rough contact of reality... it feels in one sense much more, and in another much less, than the soul engaged with reality... ~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847) The poetry of the earth is never dead. ~John Keats [P]oetry shares our misery, it is agitated with all our uneasiness; like us, it goes, comes, flies, never rests. ~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847) "That's the way of poets," said Warrington. "They fall in love, jilt, or are jilted; they suffer, and they cry out that they suffer more than any other mortals: and when they have experienced feelings enough, they note them down in a book, and take the book to market.

Ye've eyes like a bat! — can ye see in the dark? " Sez Corporal Madden to Private McFadden: " Yer figger wants padd'n' — Sure, man, ye've no shape! Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic [1] [2] [3] qualities of language —such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre —to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning. But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in. All my teeth have had to come out, And my diet I hate to think about.
