Surviving

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

Surviving

Postby Ierrellus » Mon Oct 05, 2015 3:42 pm

We urchins did survive
The cesspool of our streets;
Our joy at being alive
Depended on such treats
As husbandry can do.
In sounds of songs unsung
We learned this as we grew--
Flowers grow from dung;
And ancient songs renew.
"We must love one another or die." W.H.Auden
I admit I'm an asshole. Now, can we get back to the conversation?

I dont see anything surviving?

Nice poem tho
The truth is naked,
Once it is written it is lost.
Genius is the result of the entire product of man.
The cosmic insignificance of humanity, shows the cosmic insignificance of a universe without humanity.
