    Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed
    But join with me, each jovial blade
    Come, drink and sing and lend your aid
    To help me with the chorus:

    Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
    And pay the reckoning on the nail;
    No man for debt shall go to jail
    From Garryowen in glory.

    We are the boys who take delight
    In smashing Limerick lamps at night,
    And through the street like sportsters fight,
    Tearing all before us

    Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
    And pay the reckoning on the nail;
    No man for debt shall go to jail
    From Garryowen in glory.

    We'll break the windows, we'll break down doors,
    The watch knock down by threes and fours,
    And let the doctors work their cures,
    And tinker up our bruised

    Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
    And pay the reckoning on the nail;
    No man for debt shall go to jail
    From Garryowen in glory.

    We'll beat the bailiffs out of fun,
    We'll make the mayor and sheriffs run
    We are the boys no man dares dun
    If he regards a whole skin.

    Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
    And pay the reckoning on the nail;
    No man for debt shall go to jail
    From Garryowen in glory.

    Our hearts so stout have got us fame
    For soon 'tis known from whence we came
    Where'er we go they fear the name
    Of Garryowen in glory. [​IMG]

    Who will in fairest book of nature know
    How virtue may best lodg'd in beauty be,
    Let him but learn of love to read in thee,
    Stella, those fair lines which true goodness show.
    There shall he find all vices' overthrow,
    Not by rude force, but sweetest sovereignty
    Of reason, from whose light those night-birds fly;
    That inward sun in thine eyes shineth so.
    And, not content to be perfection's heir
    Thyself, dost strive all minds that way to move,
    Who mark in thee what is in thee most fair.
    So while thy beauty draws thy heart to love,
    As fast thy virtue bends that love to good:
    But "Ah," Desire still cries, "Give me some food!"

    - Sir Philip Sidney

    Pointy Bird
    O pointy birds, o pointy pointy,
    Anoint my head, anointy-nointy.

    - John Lillison, England's greatest one-armed poet. (Also the first man to be killed in an automobile accident, 1894)

    *finger snaps*

    But from only one hand, I wouldn't want to embarrass our late poet.

    A chance for haikus?
    Poetry is always fun.

    A stoned Mufasa
    Speaking in haiku. And stuff.
    I need coffee now.

    It has to be 5-7-5, right?

    Five, seven, then five
    Syllables mark a haiku
    Does your name have five?

    They call me 'Naran' -
    that is, in the water tribe,
    "Yeah, it surely has".

    Roses are grey
    Violets are grey
    Everything is grey
    I am a dog

    helvete is quite right
    ten-year hiatus is done
    D2 will persist
