Hi Dean - Thanks for your input and comments. Music seems very manufactured now days. Lou was one of a kind. Like your Top Ten Non Movers. Cheers Tom

Hello M.C .. thank-you .. it's my b'day shortly, and 'beyond the gate' suddenly dropped into my mind .. let's not dwell on it M.C . The clock and all the relevant atoms are fading away.

It amuses me that those who would seek a redistribution of wealth always see "the cut" as above themselves and therefore beneficiaries, never below - as indeed it would be if the redistribution were worldwide.

Harry - thankyou for your thoughts. Yes, the word works in two ways; firstly, as the swearword and secondly as a description of the activities of the "whore" as the slasher sees her.
MC - Yes, brutal indeed. I have performed it once and despite my telling the audience in advance that it was shocking, you've guessed - they were shocked. And, yes, I suppose Maggot embodies my man.

The "other worldliness" is very appealing.
I especially like the use of the "gate" metaphor
for what might wait beyond this mortal life.

Brutal! And the terrifying thought is that there
are minds that have killed with the same evil as
On a fictional level, I'm reminded of the
character played by Telly Savalas in "The Dirty
Dozen" - chillingly named "Maggot".

I once read a text about innovation and national achievement. One piece of research it referenced argued that eras of great national achievement are often presaged by an explosion of heroic literature, which indirectly inspires subsequent achievements. Many American rocket scientists involved in the Apollo missions claimed that sci fi writers like Heinlein and Asimov directly inspired them to take up science or engineering as a career, for example. So literature might well have an impact on the world, after all.
Perhaps Auden really meant that the twee, upper middle class poetry he churned out had no effect on anything...

It is a sign of the dispassionate approach of
law in the UK that - abortion aside - it
categorised the loss of infant life by
separate definitions...according to its perceived age.
Much is made of abortion - an interesting
anomaly in an increasingly secular world and no
doubt the arguments for and against will continue to rage about terminating life from
within a body without which it cannot survive.
At least, unlike some other sentient creatures,
eating one's offspring is not an issue!!

Many thanks for your comments on Schizophrenic on a Mission, I appreciate it. The piece is in fact autobiographical, the facts of the poem actually occurred nearly twenty years ago, after a vendetta I had against a company I worked for.I thought it would be interesting to write about it as a poetry piece. I've also included a piece about a day in a psych ward, which is in fact an older piece.
Thanks for your compliments it's encouraging to get feedback.

I agree. It's a sad day for music with Lou's death. Along with Iggy he was one of the founding fathers of punk in attitude as well as in music. While the rest of american music at the time was upbeat and pretty. The Velvet Underground associated with themselves with the underbelly of society,singing about the darker parts of life. They also helped the scene develop in New York of pioneers like Patti Smith and Television the precursors to punk in America. The poem spoke wonders.

Grief Harry! Is your compass busted? Shouldn't that be abortee OUTTAKE? But that's not important right now. Any chance you might sonnetise it? We all know God is dead, but that Ma Nature is a bra-burning feminist, ranks with the Santa rumour.

Hey Harry! A chap who applies 'lithely' with such aplomb even panache nay consummate elan, while probably creating a new part of speech (?)
constitutes a formidable (said Frenchwise) opponent! I yield! Apart from that; it's a cracking composition.

Hi Harry. I was too idle to check the spelling of her first name. It should be 'Corrie'.
My Google delivers. Add Radio 4 or BBC.
I suspect most of Miss JHD's sexiness was in poor John's head (and trousers). She is reported to have hardly been aware of his existence!
Your intervention timely - all my Corrys are now Corries. Cheers.

What a wonderfully mature comment Diana. Comment on WOL is sooooo perceptive. When mocking the greats, one expects to reap the whirlwind. 'Parody over piety' - put that in Latin and I'll make it my motto. My thanks, in turn, to you. Regarding parody, Our group 'did' Betjeman recently and as 'Joan Hunter Dunn' is a favourite, and Betj was such a letch, I wrote appropriately. I'll post it on my blog.
