I invented a meme that allows you to humiliate yourself a little bit

ok, so Tiff just posted a poem she wrote a long time ago, and it struck me as a memeworthy idea. So, here are the rules:

1. Find a poem (or two, if you're ambitious) that you wrote in high school. If you can't find a poem, find a piece of prose. If you can't find a piece of prose, find a history paper or something.

2. Post it!

3. Tag three people to do the same.

And away we go...


Summertime

When the sun has gone down and the moon takes its place,
And the revelers rise to give darkness new grace,
When the harshness of sunlight has softened to night,
And all beauty increases, by softness of sight,
Then the friends are more friendly, and enemies too,
Which is more than the unreserved drinking can do,
For there's magic about, and it's all through the air,
And as long as you're with me, I long to be there.


And I tag Asiankp, Crystal, and Lil. If any of you can't stand memes and hate them and never want to hear their name again, I'm sorry. But come on, get over it.

Oh I cannot WAIT to break out my angsty high school poetry and find a good piece with which to humiliate myself.

Excellent meme idea, Fort Knocks.

oh boy, this could be great! I'll have to wait 'til I get home to look up some old stuff. Pretty sure I'm in for some ultra big humiliation. Sure we can't use college material?

Oh, btw, sweet poem. I always brag to people I meet that this guy I know can write a poem in 3 minutes or less on any given subject, using any given rhyme and beat scheme at any given time. Just give him a pencil, some paper and subject on which to write and the poetry starts a-flowin'. I never vouch for the quality of anything you write though, don't worry.

Unreserved drinking? mmm I love the summertime.

Great poem. We're going to have to make this a monthly feature/meme.
