From a page about poetry, the worst poem ever written in the English language!
“A Tragedy” by Theophile Marzials
The barges down the river flop.
From the slimy branches the grey drips drop …
To the oozy waters, that lounge and flop …
And my head shrieks – “Stop”
And my heart shrieks – “Die”
Yet I knew – I knew
If a woman is false can a friend be true?
It was only a lie from the beginning to the end –
My Devil – My “Friend” …
So what do I care,
And my head is empty as air –
I can do,
I can dare
(Plop, Plop The Barges flop
And let myself run all away with my head
