Eurolove

Poem By Spike Milligan

I cannot
and I will not
No, I cannot love you less
Like the flower to the butterfly
The corsage to the dress

She turns my love to dust
my destination empty
my beliefs scattered: Diaspora!

Who set this course - and why?
Now my wings beat -
without purpose
Yet they speed.............

Who set this course - and why? Now my wings beat - without purpose Yet they speed........ very good poem. tony
Spike shares with us his own experience of what we have all known at some time - unrequited love! Though by no means an innocent-in-love in his own life, he knew something of how the heart can sometimes prompt us towards one-sided, illogical and painful attachments.
I give this so called poem 1 out of 10 because there is no zero, but I do like a lot of Spike's stuff

Have A Nice Day

'Help, help, ' said a man. 'I'm drowning.'
'Hang on, ' said a man from the shore.
'Help, help, ' said the man. 'I'm not clowning.'
'Yes, I know, I heard you before.

Granny

Through every nook and every cranny
The wind blew in on poor old Granny
Around her knees, into each ear
(And up nose as well, I fear)

Mirror, Mirror

A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
But,

The Abc

'Twas midnight in the schoolroom
And every desk was shut
When suddenly from the alphabet
Was heard a loud "Tut-Tut!"
