Trust not for freedom to the Krauts!

I have only studied Ancient Greek.  I do not know what Eliot (and Pound) disparagingly called 'demotic Greek'.  So, I don't know what the Modern Greek for, "Fuck you, Angela Merkel!" would be (I don't even know what the Ancient Greek would be for this, my Ancient Greek is pretty shitty these days.), but whatever it is, the good people of Greece just said it.

A Very Silly Quatrain

I try and try to woo women with my pen,
But my muse just won't come again,
And my poems end up sucking.
Hell, I'd rather be, well, you know.

A Silly Couplet

I would give a gold-plated door-hinge,
For any word that rhymes with "orange".

The Best Joke I Told in 2014

Why did the Neo-con cross the road?

He did not for there is no intellectually or morally defensible other side.
