Love Poetry?

“Dearest wife, you know I adore you –

I have done since the day I first saw you –

But, my love, even so,

I’d like you to know

I’ve filed for divorce with my lawyer.”

 

“Dearest spouse, you know I adore you –

I have done since the day I first saw you –

But, despite our vow,

As I write to you now,

I’m lying in bed with your lawyer…”

War Poetry

These clean white crosses

Are children of a new land,

Begotten by death.

 

Ribbon or poppy,

For Flanders mud, once breathing,

Too late pities death.
