Well guys, in english (not my best or favorite subject) we're studying poetry (now its REALLY not my best subject!). As you might have gatherd, I a. don't like english; b. don't like poetry and c. happen to be really bad at poetry. However, i think i found the solution...write poems about helicopters! Hahaha, lets see how this one flies...no pun intended.

Pilots Thrill

Power increases engine roared,
Blades rotate with increasing speed,
The heli gently lifts skyward.
The pilot can now feel the need,

To let loose the power within
His skills that he’s honed over years.
The heli starts to dance and spin,
Flipping wildly the crowd now cheers.

Inverted heli whips the grass,
The main blades reaching for the ground.
Negative pitch applied, its mass
Blasts upward with a distinct sound.

Blades bite the air to recover
Its balanced way of flying high.
Pilot brings it back to hover,
Gently resting beneath the sky.


Few, now that thats out of the way, and since many poets have wacky deep meaning hidden in poetry, i'm going to tell my teacher its actually about horrible child-labor.
Well, now off to math studying, much more reasonable subject. Talk to you later.

If you read it you would understand why.
Some others here have.

BTW
A Poem is not simply a sequence of ryhming words thrown together
It has to have some continuity through it.

Contrary to popular beleif's the correct answer to "Why did the writer write this?" is not "Because he wanted money for food" but some deep emotional *****.


Ammazingly this also holds for english homework: you didn't write this so as to "pass english" but the correct answer here is also some deep emtoinal ****.

And thats all i learned in english...

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!


My father used to tell me that one. He was like a father figure to me.

Mike Basset, what a film!

The unfortunate thing about poetry is to beable to write well you need to feel it in your heart.

Often the best poetry is written in difficult times.

Poetry is not something to take lightly. You can melt a girl with words or you can tear her down.

Laughing at yourself will lengthen your life. Laughing at me will shorten it...
