    The joy of rediscovered poetry

    Had forgotten all about this until today:

    Let me die a young man's death - by Roger McGough

    Let me die a young man's death
    not a clean and inbetween
    the sheets holywater death
    not a famous-last-words
    peaceful out of breath death

    When I'm 73
    and in constant good tumour
    may I be mown down at dawn
    by a bright red sports car
    on my way home
    from an allnight party

    Or when I'm 91
    with silver hair
    and sitting in a barber's chair
    may rival gangsters
    with hamfisted tommyguns
    burst in and give me a short back and insides

    Or when I'm 104
    and banned from the Cavern
    may my mistress
    catching me in bed with her daughter
    and fearing for her son
    cut me up into little pieces
    and throw away every piece but one

    Let me die a young man's death
    not a free from sin tiptoe in
    candle wax and waning death
    not a curtains drawn by angels borne
    'what a nice way to go' death

    Roses are red

    Come now Johnny, that's not fair,
    he's clearly a sensitive guy.
    But to post poetry on a car forum,
    I have to wonder why?

    I know you like Leon, perhaps you like him too much?
    I can see you appreciate his sensitive touch.

    Oh how I wish, I wish for Mod Powers.
    I'd ban you and Leon, what's next, a thread about Flowers?

    I'd avoid mentioning your passage around here.
    it's all getting a bit gay, that's what I fear.

    Gay, twat, cnut, shite, sucks and passage
    Poor leons thread, its getting all a bit savage
    We need to take a break and do something less heinous
    Like pick on Piman instead, for having a really small penis

    It's not my fault that the thread's turned outrageous.
    I've started to realise that rhyming's contageous.

    If offense we have caused, apologise to Leon I may.
    But it is his fault, for starting a thread that's this gay.

    Dear lord, I'd never quite managed to see,
    How come we have so much fine poetry.
    However I predict with reasonable foresight,
    This thread however is nothing but shite.

    Your rhymes are quite tight, for a creaky old man.
    But if it was I with the Mod stick, it's you I would ban.

    In all due fairness an explanation is sort
    to defend his actions we need leon to retort
    But in a way Im glad that it was poetry he clucked
    Becuase if it had been a Haiku we'd be totally fcuked

    Haiku is easy, if you are reasonably bright.
    Just type into Google and copy a poetry site.

    I'm amazed that this thread, has gone on so long.
    It was clear from the outset, that it's content was wrong.

    Where is young Leon, where has he been?
    He needs to appreciate, the rhymes we have seen.

    I have to declare this thread has filled me with glee
    If only we still had the mod named JB

    He'd jump on this thread straight away, real quick
    and declare it shite with his bown nobbly stick.

    Personally, this thread fills me with fear
    that one of the txt spk bois will turn up on here
    the poetry, from eloquent prose, it will be turned
    to CUL8R, ATB and AFAIC

    on reflection I see

    What fills me with fear I alsmost dare not say
    by posting poetry on this thread
    I may be labelled Gay!!!!!

    Last time I checked there was also me,
    who happened to have the initials, J.B.

    But with all these phat rhymes it just wouldn't seem right,
    to dig out the stick and declare this thread 'shite '
