What c/c for this takeoff on "The Lion In Winter" poem?
"How dear of you to let me out of jail...."
Beckett, dead in the Cathedral,
memories of his, and your father's, arms,
but that's only here-say heresy.
"What mother does not love being
locked-up with her children...."
in the political boredom of
but not this year, children.
"We'll see the Second Coming
before...." another carpenter
is resurrected from stone-tomb.
"Oh can't you see it is us!
Not countries, not politics,
who breed war....WE are
the barbarians, WE all carry
knives....can't we all live
in peace, for a change?"
We all own this earth,
indivisible by lines on a map.
Indivisible by who challenges who.
We are all barbarians
of the printed word....
"Love me, little lamb, or leave me."
"Departure is a simple act."
Put the left knife down,
and then the right....can't
we all live in peace, for a change?
"Well, all families have their
ups and downs...."
And, 'peace', correctly spelled
here and now, is 'a glimmering
of Light in barbarians' minds.'
We ALL wear cave-skins
to ward against cave-cold,
in fire-lighting our world
of neolithic ideas, printed 'again'.
Murder is a sport.
Again, take the knives I give you.
Lines in quotation marks were spoken by Elinor of Aquitaine, in the 1968 movie "The Lion In Winter"
Elinor was played by Catherine Hepburn, with King Henry of England played by Peter O'Toole.
Many metaphors in this write. Reread, to find their parallels here, in this poetry section.
WUT....you got 4 points for your ridiculous answer which does NOT pertain to the c/c of this posted poem. You will not get the BA, bucko.

Hi there !
long time no see !
i miss your good morning poems
they used to make my day
about the poem
a human dream and such a lovely one it is
the problem is through history somebody always manage to convince nations it could be brought by the knife , the bomb ,club and shield !
such a dark irony from a dark creature in Control of dark souls manipulating the peaceful dream
while in fact its more simple than that
as it could be found in kindness ,mutual forgiveness, justis , friendship and respect
thanks for sharingSource(s): merry christmas peace !

Such a lucid answer above^ I don't think one need worry about him and conspiracy. Quite a take on the play/movie. I had to do the research primer to catch up with you. Yes, a lot of metaphors to play with in's one mind. A cast of dysfunctional characters but that would probably describe most situations and 'families'. We do need to take away the knives both literally and figuratively! An excellent read.

A trifle silly i might say to curse the single that holds the handbag, via letting rip and venting out, it serves to make the difficulty worse. Your won't locate to any extent further effective composing than the above, commencing verse. superb poem.

History and mystery,
if nothing changes nothing changes,
Peace within is all that is promised.
mystery and history.
