If you enjoyed Resumé to that degree, Joe, you undoubtedly will ADORE this:____________ CODA ____________There’s little in taking or giving,There’s little in water or wine;This living, this living, this livingWas never a project of mine.Oh, hard is the struggle, and sparse isThe gain of the one at the top,For art is a form of catharsis,And love is a permanent flop,And work is the province of cattle,And rest’s for a clam in a shell,So I’m thinking of throwing the battle —Would you kindly direct me to hell?~ Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)PS: I happen to love DP intensely, because I have seen beyod the brittle wit and mannered expressions of self-pity. Behind the facade she built with great skill and sonsummate craftsmanship to shield herself from the wprst aspects of Human Nature, lurked a Great Heart and a nature filled with infinite sweetness. So mind your manners, please when referring to favoites of mine.
Joe, I'm sure you're capable of giving us far more than monosyllabic grunts of disapproval. We are always more interested in learning WHY people think as they do than WHAT they think.
Because all these poems are of "surrender", either of 'life' or of 'principle'. 'F that.
I see you've missed the great tongue-in-cheek humor in these.Only Parker could poke fun at methods of committing suicide and get away with it.As I said above: I happen to love DP intensely, because I have seen beyond the brittle wit and mannered, –– almost burlesqued –– expressions of self-pity. Behind the facade she built with great skill and sonsummate craftsmanship to shield herself from the worst aspects of Human Nature, lurked a Great Heart and a nature filled with infinite sweetness.I meant every word.I've read just about everything Parker ever wrote, and admire her tremendously. She was a true original with an utterly brilliant mind. Like many extremely bright people she found the manifold idiocies and cruelties of the world hard to bear., so what? That does nothing to dminish her importance as an artist.I could hardly fault her for that.
;P“If wild my breast and sore my pride,I bask in dreams of suicide,If cool my heart and high my headI think 'How lucky are the dead.”― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker
"The destructive character lives from the feeling, not that life is worth living, but that suicide is not worth the trouble." --Walter Benjamin

The end of the Democratic Party is near! The juveniles in charge are all but destroying it.. Y'all have exhausted every single common decency that it once had and polarized this country into complete dysfunction and trivial encounters over your MARCHES, RIOTING PROTESTS, while the CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, and INCOMPETENCE mounts in Washington, DC. At this rate, your great great grandchildren are gonna look back at the demise of the Democrats and wonder how stupidity got to this level....
Although I share your avid thirstTo see the Party of the AssFrom our country finally passIt's far more likely we'll go first.That would be no big surpriseSince D'Rats long for our demiseTheir schemes will bring about the worst.~ Cassandra Wales
She was a hottie back in the day. I'd bang her.
She might have appreciated it if you had –– depending on how appeal\ing YOU might have looked to her, of course.];^}>
That girl wrote some good poetry. I'd love to see one about old Tranny Granny Pelousi.You know after her "historic" 8 hr speech her Depends was so damn full it took four staffers with gas masks and hazmat suits to cart the damn thing out to the dumpster.
P_____H_____E_____W_____!In future, Vinnie, please take your toilet humor back to the seventh grade where it belongs.I am no fan of Nana Pelousy, believe me, but surely she deserves better than THAT.She's a year older than I, and I could no more STAND for eight hours even in my comfy old robe and slippers than I could fly across the Pacific by flapping my arms in the breeze.Like it or appreciate it, or not, yagotta gve the old she-devil her due.What she did was an AMAZING FEAT of Physical Endurance.THEY may NEVER be fair to US, but it WE are not FAIR to THEM, we are NO BETTER than THEY.
Gotcha, chief! I'll tone it down.They were probably propping her up with sticks from behind they way they did Breznev in the old Soviet Union.
ONE of MANY THINGS that MAKE SUICIDE SEEM an ATTRACTIVE ALTERNATIVE_______ ROCK CONCERT _______
I see the bright flash of splintering glassAnd the moaning whine of a great turbineTortures my ears.A thousand bullets tear through the airEach finding its mark in the heartOf an expectant listenerAnd through the ensuing rending painI hear this new and mean refrainWhat once was sweet has turned to gallAnd strength employd just to appallThe congregation in the concert hall.Humor is lead. Tenderness dead,And all sense of style is dissolved in a bileWhose bitterness cannot be said,But can only be feltIn the crash of the Beat at monotonous speedThat prompts only the question"Where will this lead?"~ FreeThinke
Your remark was totally unrelated to the content of the post. It also had a sneering cntemptuos tone.We don't permit any of that here, escept on rare occasions.
Those beatnic poets are not my cup of tea, I'll tell you that!FreeThinke old pal, Could you compose a verse or two about the most diabolical political genius in US history, Hellahag Clinton?From the NY Post:Hillary Clinton ...paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation. And it is almost certain FBI agents supporting Clinton were among the anonymous sources.In fact, the Clinton connections are so fundamental that there probably would not have been an FBI investigation without her involvement.That makes hers a brazen work of political genius — and perhaps the dirtiest dirty trick ever played in presidential history. Following her manipulation of the party operation to thwart Bernie Sanders in the primary...America owes me an apology. Unlike that money-grubbing bitch, I did what I did because I love this beautiful nation.
Hillary looked into the magic mirror and this exchange ensued. “Mirror, mirror in my hand, Who's the fairest in the land?” The mirror sighed, And then replied, "The men have got you beat hands down, You wretched, rump-sprung, braying clown."
Hope for Resurrection in Steatopygia*As Hill'ry passed the magic glassShe caught a glimpse of her fat ass."Mirror, thank you," she just said.“I thought my chances now were dead,“But you have done me lots of good.“I see that I must have black blood."~ FreeThinke (3/14/08)––––––––––––––––––––––––––* ste·a·to·py·gia noun Etymology: New Latin, from steat-, stear + Greek pygē buttocks Date: 1879 an excessive development of fat on the buttocks that occurs chiefly among women of some African tribes, especially the Hottentots— ste·a·to·py·gous\ or ste·a·to·py·gic
