    Please consider this poem on technical mertis, rather then content; I was really trying to get some nice visual effects, especially with line lengths, but also using repetitious content such as echoing words. I think the format is a nice first try, although not a great poem in its own right.

    You were quite right, I did misquote it - assuming you take the one by Ella Wilcox to be correct.The one I used may be corrupted by much use, being very common and widely known - like most fairy tales of multiple versions. Because it really makes no difference, I have replaced the verse with the one from Solitude, so take comfort in knowing it is now the 'original' version.

  • POEM: The One False Truth by Matthew Hyatt (2/5/2006 12:06:00 PM)

    Why must everything have a christian message? Why must everything be about something? I would be a fool to deny this is anything less than a brilliant poem, yet I have a completely different interpretation. My view is no more or less valid then yours (unless your Matthew) , but I don't fel the need to attempt to convert you to them. I wish people could just accept a great work of art for what it is, wihtout always having to try it fit into their narrow worldview. I don't know what Matthew meant, but I think I do- and I'm probably wrong. So I'll just say I like the poem, and leave it at that.
