All Broken Up About It (2002)
This image appears a little peppered...
I doubt the Veep shares the sentiments of the title.
If you want to break yourself up, surf over to firedoglake's DickFest -- a blog poetry festival about the life and times of His Dickness. It's much more literary than anything I could write today.
Peppered up...too much...and yes FDL has been great....esp. the CSI part.....( I have post up too- as everyone does- mine is the Duck Dick Moment...)
Apostrophe"Apostrophe is talking about the dead as if it were still alive" - Leah Fowler.Since you are the only one who has diedTell us what it is likeNot to dance with the tribeWhen your name is calledWhen the gongs are struckAnd the prayer wheels spunAnd women chased from the lamasery.Since you are the only one who has diedTell us what drew you to the other sideNot to join in communal hymnsWhen fresh fruit lies on the altarWhen yak butter smears the lamasery doorsAnd the golden fleece hangs in the towerTo tempt ancient heroes from beyond the sea.Since you are the only one who has diedTell us why you abandoned the tribeNot to wed your appointed brideWhen your mother wails for grandchildrenWhen your father shames the wedding partyAnd refuses to stop scratching the hearthFor traces of your bones, teeth, and hair.Since you are the only one who has diedTell us what future awaits the tribeNot that anyone can unsnap a wishboneWhen deprivation makes poverty feel goodWhen sacrifice draws enemies togetherAnd not even whirling dervishes explainWhy perfect silence is the best answer.[Disposable Poem February 24, 2006]
