    Help me with this poetry thingamabob I COMMAND YOU!

    Ok, so my brother has to do some poetry thingy in class and he palmed it off on me for some reason (I tihnk he promised to clean my bathroom for 3 weeks or something..I can't remember). I suck at poetry. So help me I BEG OF YOU!

    Aright now to the description

    Topic: "Seize the day, time's a'wasting, remember we're mortal!" Carpe Diem, Tempus Fugit, Memento Mori!

    You can do the assignment in a serious manner or choose to do a parody of a carpe diem poem.

    Remember the Cavalier Poet's attitude-honor, bravery, and pleasure matter most in life!

    Required Elements
    1. Minimum 20 lines
    2. Rhyming couplets
    3. Written in tetrameter (8 syllable lines)
    4. Theme consistent with assigned topic

    So help me! You're my only hope!

    time flies, or that is what they say
    no friend, life is a caberet
    What is that which you try to say?
    Carpe Diem, or seize the day.
    those words are old but work today.
    So trite, their meaning fades away.

    Your brother's a damn lazy guy.
    So do you work harder? No, why!
    You've friends on the old OTF
    With trout, and much beer on their breath.
    Since life is too short to stay straight,
    let's drink all the beers in this crate.

    You can't possibly expect to say "do my homework for me" on this forum and get a straight answer. :teeth:

    If your brother assumes the position for the trout-beating of a lifetime we'll consider his plight.

    Once all drunk and wasted on beer,
    Off-topic this thread do we steer,
    Where no one can say he is sane,
    All of it on Durf do we blame,
    Carpe OTF by my hand!
    Don't you think Gaile has a nice *BANNED*

    Looking good.

    01 Your brother's a damn lazy guy.
    02 So do you work harder? No, why!
    03 You've friends on the old OTF
    04 With trout, and much beer on their breath.
    05 Since life is too short to stay straight,
    06 Let's drink all the beers in this crate.
    07 Once all drunk and wasted on beer,
    08 Off-topic this thread do we steer,
    09 Where no one can say he is sane,
    10 All of it on Durf do we blame,
    11 Carpe OTF by my hand!
    12 Don't you think Gaile has a nice *BANNED*
    13 Now the poem's coming along great.
    14 Your brother's grade will be first-rate!
    15 And it's all thanks to all of us jerks . . .
    16 OT membership has its perks.
    17 For helping a friend in dire need
    18 Is the noblest, most blessed deed
    19 That e'er could be done by the crew
    20 That makes life complete (and fun too!)
    21 With barbaric yawp do I send
    22 You this verse now, au revoir, the end.

    damn dude, suck it up, clean the bathroom, and tell your brother to write it himself.
    also, if he doesnt write it himself, he is going to have to cite it, or else it is plagiarismm (please correct me if im wrong on this anyee).. which is probably why you arent getting a straight answer here.

    on another note, anakha and durf.. many kudos on your brillant writing skills
