    Ok guys, it time to start rhyming. So quit eating, stop those mind-numbing games, and post your selfmade poetry for everyone to learn by heart.

    Let me start with this humble attempt:

    Before someone continues writing a little,
    why don't you fix the tittle?

    :rolleyes:

    This is going to be painful to watch.

    Maybe we should close it down before it gets too horrible? :)

    oh Finder, Addresbook, iCal
    auf euch muss Ich clicken nur ein Mal.
    mail, iTunes und Safari
    Ich habe euch lieb mehr als mein Atari.

    :cool:

    Desde que a Mac me he cambiado,
    Ningun PC para mi he mirado,
    y aunque digan que mi Mac es caro,
    hasta ahora no ha tenido ni un reparo.

    :eek:

    Pls. Close this thread :p :p

    I'm sorry for being such a fool
    But I couldn't find a tool
    To change the title of a post
    At no additional cost

    (As in, I only managed to change the title of the posting, but not of the thread itself. And without you i would have never noticed, now i have to stare at it all day.)

    Addition by Doctor Q...

    If sebisworld said,
    "Oh mod - fix my thread"
    And a mod saw the plea
    It would be fixed for free!

    The typo is history
    And to prevent a mystery
    About acts by a ghost
    I have doctored this post.

    Oh golly - I see this going from bad to worse
    (like my bank card and its' 79p curse).

    But lo! goes mofs, towards the end
    A poor attempt to rhyme.
    Do we have to mention tiger (os x)
    in our posts at this time? :D

    I'm forgotten
    I'm one of the many drops in the vast ocean.
    I wonder how many forgotten drops there are.
    Wouldn't it be nice to be the only one.
    How special-like a birthday present.
    I want to believe I'm not forgotten
    Like so many drops in the vast ocean.​



    That was a poem I wrote several years ago that was published in a book called A Celebration of Young Poets - Spring 2002

    Not sure that I would be ready for the kind of abuse that this forum would bring on my poetry! Hard enough to write it, harder still to have someone ridicule it...

    I'll post mine as soon as I can think of a word that rhymes with Nantucket.

    Pawtucket: A city of northeast Rhode Island

    That kind of rhymes with nantucket!

    There's also duckett, juckett, puckett and luckett.
    Now where's that poem?

    edit: got those words here.

    I hurt now, from this sad excuse for the language we call "English"

    Here is one that I did two years ago:

    Listen- Can you Hear?
    Listen- Can you Hear the blowing
    Of the Wind?
    The rustling of the Tree?
    Listen- Can you Hear?
    Listen- Can you hear the birds
    Fluttering from spot to spot?
    The scraping of leaves against the ground?
    Listen- Can you Hear?
    Listen- Can you Hear the distant roar of planes
    Flying in the blue sky?
    The whisper of pebbles being rolled around?
    Listen- Can you Hear?
    Listen- Can you Hear the rumble of a breath
    Moving peacefully through your nose or over your lips?
    The noise of noiseless particles?
    Listen- Can you Hear?
    Hear- Can you Listen?


    If this goes well I might post another.

    Mechcozmo -

    some line breaks would help, stanzas could help offset the direction of your poem, i like the last line too, good twist/play on the expected there

    Thanks. It did have some, but it lost the formatting during the copy/paste into Safari. I didn't really notice I guess.

    I guess this means that since I have some good feedback I should post another?
