I love this Poem -
Philip Larkin - This Be The VerseThey fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.
I don't know why I love it.....but I do.So I decided to share it with you.That a poem in itself. bonus. LOL

I read it. Love the stuff.

I suggest the following poets:

Felix Dennis
Lord Byron
Lord Rorchester
DH Lawrence


Take my love.
Take my land.
Take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care, I'm still free.
You can't take the sky from me.
