Some people might know this by now, but I am really into poetry and recently I discovered a good poet and his name is  Percy Bysshe Shelley. The poem that really got my attention was "The Masque of Anarchy". The full poem can be read here http://www.artofeurope.com/shelley/she5.htm a somewhat shorter version (and in my opinion closer to us by today standards) I will post here:

    Stand ye calm and resolute,
    Like a forest close and mute,
    With folded arms and looks which are
    Weapons of unvanquished war.

    And if then the tyrants dare,
    Let them ride among you there,
    Slash, and stab, and maim and hew,
    What they like, that let them do.

    With folded arms and steady eyes,
    And little fear, and less surprise
    Look upon them as they slay
    Till their rage has died away

    Then they will return with shame
    To the place from which they came,
    And the blood thus shed will speak
    In hot blushes on their cheek.

    Rise like Lions after slumber
    In unvanquishable number,
    Shake your chains to earth like dew
    Which in sleep had fallen on you-
    Ye are many — they are few.

It was my choice or chance or curse
To adopt the cause for better or worse
And with my worldly goods & wit
And soul & body worship it.

We're learning life's lessons,
while we blaze this herbal essence

I'll be happy once I've done this certain thing.
We all say this often not realizing what it brings.

Sure, just send it in a PM, one of the things I do when I have some free time is go on yahoo answers in the poetry section. You can find a really good poem here and then.


P.S. I would like to add that this poem I posted had great influence on Gandhi and that he use to recite it during his protests.

Hickory Dickery dock
An Horde sat on a rock

I went ahead
and ambushed him dead
and now he lies flat on that rock.

Oh mayn', what a joke
How big thinks of himself this little rogue
Makin' the horde lie in a rock
But the truth is that the gnomie just sucks my cock!


P.S - My apologies for the last hostile word!

To the gnome's surprise t'was not a rock, it was indeed a spell!
A mage I am, fear I not, I dispatch my enemies well.
Chilling here nicely, inside my ice block, the ending time will tell,
Surprise surprise, the rock was me, sending that gnome to hell Smiley

The meter in the last two lines keep it from flowing. I would suggest revising it.
