Look Back In Anger

Sepulchritude Forum: The Absinthe Forum Archives Thru July 2001: Look Back In Anger

Thanks boys and girls, you helped me out with something: I had forgotten who of the forumites it was who had the poem 'Résumée' by Dorothee Parker in his profile:

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.

It was Anatomist.
This poem was also presented to us recently by the man I had suspected to be Hobgoblin in disguise - the teacher of the essay writing class - as an example how to clearly state facts without too many words ("wonderful New York pessimism... as you can see, Parker committed suicide" *evil grin*).

...One more Parker Poem... the
"General Review of the Sex Situation"

Woman wants monogamy;
Man delights in novelty;
Love is woman's moon and sun;
Man has other forms of fun.
Woman lives but in her lord;
Count to ten, and man is bored;
With this the gist and sum of it,
What earthly good can come of it?

Living in the past
will never last
When your dick is a mast
and a spell has been cast

You'll be sailing real fast
when you propel you self with gas
that's being forced from your ass
with an empty Absinthe glass

Eleven virgins in the cast
will go after a man sized crast
but you're probably going to ask
what's under the hood and mask

So you decide to go fishing for bass
and sinking in the pond a wayward lass
Attending the following mass
and going home to cook up some suckatash
