Not exactly T.S. Eliot...

Not exactly T.S. Eliot... April is indeed the cruelest month, so I went in search of something to honor the great master of English poetry. But this is what I found instead.

Thank you bunnyfire. A very silly poem (I enjoyed it very much). I guess this is Sid the cat's website. The link to the realchange news (the office where Sid lives) at the bottom of the first page wasn't working correctly, but a little URL hacking got me to their latest issue, which is filled with some extremely well written stories and poems. Great find.

Chaucer?

It's false Chaucer you want? Here's one from Manchester University.

Indeed Mrs. Fire, a cute site with lots of heartwarming stuff I'm assuming written by members (if you can call them members) of Seattle's homeless community. Whether it was your intention to have us explore around a bit, I enjoyed it regardless.

After all, he did help Andrew Lloyd Webber write Cats...;P

"...I have measured out my lives in catfood tins..."

I just can't decide if it's blasphemous or brilliant.

I just can't decide if it's blasphemous or brilliant.

Why not both?

p.s. "T.S. Eliot" is an anagram for "toilets."

y2karl: I always thought he didn't help write it, it was just based on his book. I could be wrong, though. Cats seems to embody exactly the sort of tacky obviousness that Eliot hated.

Actually, the original Prufrock poem has always been my favorite-until I heard that it was also the favorite poem of Monica Lewinsky.



(About time you noticed, Miguel...*grin*)
