Lament - otherwise known as Brains on Toast

Since I've been having rather a busy week - driving up to Auckland, meeting up with lots of writers and having fun here's a fun poem.  Next week I plan to compile links to fairy-tale poems.  I've got a couple in mind, but if anybody has any others that would be great.

  1. Amusing? "Grimly realistic" was more what I had in mind :-)

    Also - your post-recommender showed me your Firefly poem from last November, that I had somehow managed to miss completely. Excellent stuff!

  2. Thanks Janis, it was a bit of fun but I was most impressed by your choice this week. "Island Farewell," has a beautiful structure and an almost other worldly feel.

  3. Tim, you know, that's because you have to laugh or else... you know the story.

    And thank-you, I'm also rather fond of my firefly poem so that even though part of me says it's fan-fic the other part doesn't care.
