    Lines Written In Dejection by W.B. Yeats




    When have I last looked on
    the round green eyes and the long wavering bodies
    Of the dark leopards of the moon ?
    All the wild witches , those most noble ladies,
    For all their broomsticks and their tears ,
    Their angry tears , are gone.
    The holy centaurs of the hills are vanished ;
    I have nothing but the embittered sun ;
    Banished heroic mother moon and vanished ,
    And now that I have come to fifty years
    I must endure the timid sun.

    Watch me drool on my shoe

    There are some faulty pairs of jeans
    In my family
    I hang them to dry on a wishy-washy line
    Sìegfried is my idol but it does take a lot of money for him to see
    Past my jolly trisomy.
    No I don’t wanna go to camp.
    I’d rather stay home.
    If you think I’m not very clever
    You should see my employees.
    I’ve got musos sat in bars in Vancouver
    Spirits high, waiting for me to tell them it’s over. Or not.
    I care about Saskatoon
    About as much as ‘bout a dead raccoon.
    I might go to Toronto
    But then again, maybe no.
    You see if I see an empty seat, I get agida.
    Ideally I’d fill venues with Pegida
    But sad to say
    I’m still no Aryan Grande.
    I still just blow people
    Off.
    I think Timmy Robinson looks like a hard man. A hard man indeed
    I’ve a pianist built like a brick shithouse
    Who tell little kids who listen like Milhouse
    That a lot of effort was put in spent the day in bed.
    I can see that you can’t get that round your head.
    How can such a fool be allowed in school?
    Oh that’s not all, one word from me and he cries you a Canadair
    Saying there’s nothing wrong with my political views
    Looking like a fluffy giant teddy bear.
    Well you don’t get things like that in Europe.
    Here I’m like a fish in Stella.
    Have I told you
    about my shoe?
    People say I have dementia
    But they’re just jealous.
    I have rhythm, I have my shoe.
    Who could ask for anything more?
    My other nephew looks like a hipster
    So much hair, I want to puke
    Ah my shoe. A touch of bourgeois bling (is it real?) that brings out the general inelegancy of the line. That fake feeling. It doesn’t go with anything, won’t take you far, and it might even give you mycosis. It’s so me! I love it.
    Why do people pay good money to see me where I don’t go?
    It’s like they’re all under my retarded spell.
    Some call me the Spectrum Bum, some call me the Good Doctor of Love
    But I ain’t going nowhere because if there’s an empty seat
    Everything’s not so neat.
    I think Nigel Farage looks intelligent
    When I stroll around like some Alzheimer-stricken tart,
    Exposing my belly, nobody notices me.
    But you yell at Joe Chicory that he’s a fascist craven whore
    When he never even knew what fascism were.
    Well truly I don’t even care
    But do you think that’s very fair?
    When I was a child people told my mum she ought to have me tested
    But she just laughed at the peasants, and now look at me.
    One thing about me you should know:
    I lovebomb like a narc
    I discard like a narc
    I even mourn like a narc
    But I never cry, just like a badass psycho.
    Even if that’s not very obvious to you or Bob Dylan
    As you watch me trying to eat my shoe.
    Like John Herbert I have a Jesse too
    When he gets restless I let him lick my shoe
    I wanted a Brexit for my birthday
    And nobody will get me one
    I know you’re making a banner saying 60 ludicrous years
    Don’t bother.
    I know you think Central is so stoopid trains don’t even go there.
    That may be so. How would I know.
    But I’ve got my shoe, and what have you
    In fact, the other day after my nap I tried to remember if there was anything more precious to me than Shoe.
    Littlefinger who?
    Oh him?
    You gotta be jesting.
    No.
    The only important things in life are me and my shoe.
    It’s very clear when you watch my nephew sniff my poo but I tell you one thing:
    The shoe will go on.
    I told him to have lots of kids to make sure those very special jeans do, too.
    Who’s smiling now?

    I know.

    I know you want to tell me my father isn’t really my father
    And that really just I’m the son of the local butcher.













    But I am drooling on my shoe...

    Someone put some effort into this. There are some nice phrases. Unfortunate there isn’t more original poetry in this thread. Yet.

    You should probably be working on Paradise Found, though. And maybe that’s more concise?
