I say 'poetry'.
You say, 'I never understand it.'
I say, 'Look at it like putting together a puzzle.'
You say, 'How?'
I say, 'Think symbolism'.
You say, 'What do you mean?'
I say, 'When you read 'flower'. Don't always expect it to mean 'flower'. Expect it to mean what the flower might represent or symbolize according to the other words surrounding it - according to the emotions the poet is trying to portray.'
You say, 'I don't get it.'
I say, 'You never understand them.'
You say, 'Have you seen Ben?.'
I say, 'Ah, very poetic'.
You look at me blankly.
You say, 'So is that really a smile or does it symbolize something else?'
I say, 'Now you're talking out of your arse.'
You say, 'I am not.'
I say, 'Think symbolism. Your arse symbolises the crap you're uttering.'
You say, 'Ah! Now I get it!'
I say, 'Get what exactly?'
You say, 'Well, if I want to write a poem, all I have to do is talk ot of my arse!'
Love the picture..lolReplyDelete
funny! and the perfect picture!!!ReplyDelete
This was too great! And that picture? Well that's an image that's burned into my mind for the day!ReplyDelete
That explains my relationship to poetry perfectly! I think I get it a bit more, though - you're good, Jessica!ReplyDelete
You make it seem so easy!ReplyDelete
Very funny and the picture was the perfect ending, it's disturbing how funny I found it!!ReplyDelete
ROFL! Okay, definitely not showing my kids that picture. I'll never hear the end of it. ;)ReplyDelete
Wow, that sounds just like me. I haven't always liked poetry but I'm trying. I really should try more.ReplyDelete
This made me smile. It's how I felt in all my English classes when poetry was taught. I love poetry, but frequently don't get the symbolism. Your photo was perfect.ReplyDelete
I say, "Well Done." ";-)ReplyDelete
lol--omg. nice, very nice.~ :DReplyDelete
that picture is the most horrible and hilarious picture i've ever seenReplyDelete
teehee--oh very nice. I loved it.ReplyDelete
And I am a person who often doesn't understand poetry, but only when the poet is trying too hard. I think yours is usually just right.
Ha! Thanks for the smiles!ReplyDelete
If I understand it, then it is poetry. If I don't it is poetry for someone else. ☺ReplyDelete
I enjoy yours, I understand it. Love the pic.
ROTFL! This pretty much sums it up. :)ReplyDelete
I don't know whether to laugh or be grossed out by the picture, but I'm choosing to laugh. :)ReplyDelete
Haha! The post, the pic, everything. LOLOLOLOL!ReplyDelete
Your arse symbolises the crap you're uttering...ROFLMAO!! Is it still poetry if I'm laughing out my ass instead of talking??ReplyDelete
Loved the pic!! :)
