Insomnia— a Sonnet

The night must love me, for it wants me so, 

No is no answer, for I'm still awake. 

The moon 'tis my Pimp, and I am its Hoe,

Me? I'm thinking what a fucking piss-take.

Dreaming of sleep... how bloody ironic,

My eyes, malicious bastards, still are wide,

Yet in the daytime I'm catatonic,

Dark is my Master: Light, my Bit On The Side.

I signed no contract agreeing to this,

Yet my unspoken words I'm forced to bite.

Oh you, Starry Skies, please feel free to kiss

My arse, as tomorrow I'll put up a fight.

Yeah, I may get pimp-slapped, beaten black-blue

But I'm fucking sick of being Night's Whore.

I think you've bitten off more than can chew- 

I've bought sleeping pills once; I'll just buy some more. 


Oh Sleep, where are you, you deep, dark pit? 

For my slumber pattern is shot to shit. 

I'm a little bit angry...

Judith Butler — A Sonnet

So much to learn about the modern world!

Both genders have gone! Instead fine ideas, 

Femininity has been unfurled, 

And the oppressed women cry out their cheers. 

While the men, on the outside looking in, 

Make a pact, promising mass suicide,

And the females, they quickly lose their grin, 

For soon after exposure comes the tide. 

We are the same! We want the same! We must

Join up the genders, it's now two for one! 

And men hang up their jackets in disgust, 

Each reaching for their individual gun. 

Oh Butler, I'll take your message to the bank, 

But your theory is truly a pile of wank. 

I'm glad that after much work, thought, and deliberation I have finished my sonnet. What else did she want?

Someone sexy standing in a doorway 

With a pipe and a dry voice 

That matches the grain of the wood.

And you're left sitting on the carpet

Playing Bingo with mummy dear

When you're supposed to be

Finding the cure for 

Attention Deficit Disorder. 

Draw it out. She-nan-i-gans. 

The very syllables make you want to do 

The oddest things. 

Like tasting a strawberry and realising 

It tastes like an orange. 

So you convince anyone who will listen that it tastes 

Like a pineapple. 

If you have no imagination however, it will merely remind you of a foreign native gesturing towards an elderly lady holding some pretty offensive weapons. 

Rewrite of 'The Road Less Travelled' by Robert Frost

And sorry 

I took the one less travelled that morning, by the way, 

because I had no step in stood. 


Two roads diverged both telling this

somewhere yellow. 

I doubted it. 

Hopefully this will make Cynthia happy :D. Not seeing the attraction myself...

Kitchen Talk

There once was a bunch of maths geeks

Who insisted that they were not freaks

All is not gone!

It's negative one!

But nobody cared 'cus they'd all died of boredom.

This, I like to believe, is an inspirational little non-limerick. When you are the only one sitting in your kitchen who doesn't do maths or a maths related subject, your boredom threshold is rather short. The lack of rhyme or even metre in the final line symbolises my utmost confusion when some poor soul is trying to describe the intricacies of matrices. What can I say? I am not of a mathematical mind.
