Untitled I


If your heart doff a frosty rime
Bring coal and melt it out away
Flaccid it thus will be in time
When old lady satire at bay
As butt'rflies in our stomaches stay
So did satire go all the way.

Let tribes and tribes react be one
A great tribe begot a great wail
Come my brethren from south to horn
O' Africa; utopia we sail
On hydrophobic raft frail
How far t' utopia shall it rail?

Hark! Every clan all asleep
As hemlock they drank, surely did
Even in that death's grim they weep
Not in this world, but next in bid;
Twixt heav'n or hell is peace amid
Or is she crest'd in heaven's lid?

Pray my unwitty brain to know
Pray my unwitty mind; a clue
To sprout out from my thoughts below
Be it false, unwitty or true
I shall e'er try when time is due
T' dry tears from faces next to you.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
