Who else draws you a little picture of the title at the end of the poem?Don't fear the 8hate. Come on baby, get on board the 8hate Train. Seasons don't fear the 8hate Train, nor do the wind, the summer, the rain, we can be like they are, come on baby, don't fear the 8hate Train, baby take my hand, don't fear the reefer, we'll be able to fly, don't fear the 8hate train....Well, you get the idea.

    come on plummy, no poet or poem is without flaws, doggy's got this faux-shakesperean diction thing going on that comes off extremely stilted; anyone who uses 'pious spewers' and is not being satirical but deadly serious needs to tone down a bit, not down to mr carters water cooler chat, but there's a happy medium somewhere in there; he he's got the imaginatiion, but maybe bring that diction up to today. even wordsworth got a little casual in 'the prelude' for crying out loud
