    Charlie Gillespie's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (10/22/2010 8:29:00 AM)

      I have to agree with Mr. Yes and Mr. Cunts.

      Mr Rhebergen you offend on two counts. First: bad art. Your exercise in contrafactum is doggerel.

      Secondly, Your assumption in the line: 'I thank the God all know to be' espouses an all-too-pervasive religious dogma that is severely offensive.

      There are other ways of seeing the world, Henley's poem comes from somewhere outside yours- can't you just let him take you there for a bit? That is the essence of poetry. Unless you understand that, all the works of all the wonderful minds of history will simply wash past you and your poetry will always be wet shit.
