《清明》杜牧

清明時節雨紛紛,
路上行人欲斷魂。
借問酒家何處有?
牧童遙指杏花村。

Seeing that today's Qing Ming (清明).

Meme first: If you see this, post a poem in your own LJ.

I was going for a Tang poem, but spotted this and thought it a lot of fun. From here:

Foreign Objects
By Bruce Covey

Hemlock is high in soluble fiber.
A self-directed bullet contains no fatty acids.
Asphyxiation eliminates 2nd-hand smoke.
Carbon Monoxide is nitrate-free.

Sleeping pills reduce the body’s need for sugar.
A blow from a sword is high in iron.
Hanging flushes the body of its toxins.
Cyanide cleanses potentially harmful resins.

Bleach cuts cholesterol levels.
Jumping simulates weightlessness.
Drowning ensures hydration.
Smoking improves eyesight.

An oncoming train is filled
With many fruits and vegetables.
Running a car into a tree reduces
The need for red meat consumption.


(From: http://www.horselesspress.com/horselessreview.html)

Reminds me of Dorothy Parker's "Coda", heh.

What if Bertie Wooster were Batman?. Yup, what the title says.

Also, I wish that more people were writing the March themes for 31_days. Not just because I think the themes are evocative (for me, at least; I haven't felt like that about previous months') but also um, I have sort of private agenda. You see, I've been writing and posting a Hikaru no Go/Spirited Away crossover fic there since this month started, very short updates only, and it's starting to look like I'm spamming the comm. -_-;;;

Just in case you're interested in reading a fic whose chapters are being written and posted nightly and I'm definitely forewarning, is WIP and may end up abandoned:

Title: Twice the River 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 so far.
Series: Hikaru no Go, Spirited Away.
Summary: I tried to write a Sai comes back story and it intersected with Spirited Away.
