Lionsmouth

Written about a job interview in Northern Ireland. Considered essentially impenetrable by the poetry group. Turns out it couldn’t be unravelled and reravelled. Exists as is. 

(an attempt to redo it reads thus:

"The port by the wine-sea,

Beyond the islands of men,

We pass

To a red liveried land,

Escaping.

Into a more dangerous place,

With fewer fortresses and less security than we’ve ever known,

Passing fragile paper cranes downriver,

Floating down through

Seaside Lionsmouth.

But the pit that is fled,

The gauntlet that is run

Precedes arrival in the mouth of the lion,

It was from heartlands, homelands,

That hold tight, immobilise,

Paralyse –

To reach the sea, one must run and run and run.

The far port, a distant hope:

To put that flight behind us, fiction,

The lion’s mouth truer, we are within;

Too weak, too bound to go.”

 
I do not believe the small additions add anything.

We talked a few weeks about about how Lara Croft’s surviving of an attempted rape could be used to delve into all sorts of new character emotions within a game. How about include a sex scene in that game not long after the rape and make it optional. Have it so that players can decide. If she goes along with it, perhaps Lara is emotionally distracted and merely trying to forget a horrific experience, thereby not building a relationship with the male counterpart. Perhaps if she says no, players can learn something about his character.

Now he is talking about the CIA destabilizing countries, and the NWO being the teeth behind the puppet master Illuminati……
Only an independent can use any of those words and continue his career unabated. Tons of respect Al.

A genuine quotation on a Google+ post of one of the new Weird Al videos. Oh and by the way, not on a post of Foil but on a post of Tacky. 

I… I didn’t know there was a level beyond Literally Unbelievable.
