This poem shall not be
Of the land or of the sea,
Of the heavens nor the earth,
Darkness or the light,
It must not involve
Wings or endless flight,
Or the earthly possetions
That we hold dear
And must not be about
A certain day or year.

Now the part that is most hard is not what you can't do, but what you must involve, and there is not a lot that you can do... so you have to think really hard.... Which I am not doing right now....Torture is a mindless and boring task, it's what you come up with that is interesting..... Hurry... yawn....before....snores....

"Sticks and stones will break my bones,
But words will break my heart"

i wrote the following a while back and posted it in main. i do not think you saw it, but i figured after such a challenge you deserved this ...
This is not a poem

I did not create this with a mouthful of air.
In fact I did not create it at all,
Whatever I am. My brain created it,
Whatever that is.

Then my hands put pen to paper and wrote words;
Where The Poem went I do not know.
Even later, by battering small pieces of plastic,
I (wherever I came from) turned the words into electric signals,
Just a mutation of energy, I know, but to me, monumentous.

Now you (whatever you are) are reading words,
Or rather percieving patters of electron bombardment
Or the excitation of a liquid crystal matrix.
But you see (maybe), This is (has) not (been) a poem;
Let alone The Poem.
