Simile,synonym, sin for evermore

Poetry just hints while prose can flourish more
[As  in giving speeches, Oh, Lord, they are too long]
To persuade us to give our money for the new Cathedral door

I met the new schoolmaster ,oh,my eye, he is a bore
I wish instead of  yapping on he put his thoughts in song
Lieder may well hint while  prose embroiders more

I heard the women talking, they want to share their lore
I hope they do not gossip ,as we know what is damned wrong:
To persuade us to give our money for the new Cathedral door

I am  not a hinter, yet explaining is a chore
I ‘m a victim  to my scruples,they send me round the bend
Prose’s too  articulate, Poetry  hints ,oh metaphor!

Simile,synonym, sin for evermore
Though Jesus is our saviour,absolution will depend
On how much gold we offer for the new Cathedral door

Never  give up hope  yet look at Jesus’ end
See continued horrors in the so called “Holy” Land
Poetry  will hint while prose will labour sure
To persuade the  golden calf to  come ram the new church door


Literary devices:Accumulation or ” The More the Merrier” [ not used by poets!]

Since I posted an article which said prose accumulates I thought I should explain it.This article is goodWhiteStarling.jpg




Definition of Accumulation

Accumulation is a figure of speech in rhetoric that creates a list or gathers scattered ideas in a way that builds up, emphasizes, or summarizes the main point. Accumulation is an example of addition in rhetoric, using a “more the merrier” approach to illustrating the theme of a passage. Addition in rhetoric is also known as adiectio, while the definition of accumulation is the same as that of congeries and accumulatio. Accumulation is part of a group of figures of speech in rhetoric called enumeratio. Note that accumulation often has some repetition included, especially anaphora in which a word is repeated at the beginning of successive clauses or sentences. However, to qualify as accumulation the repetition must have a sense of adding on to a list and not simply repeating the same thing over and over.

The word accumulation comes from the Latin word for “to amass.”

St. Augustine founded it. Becket died for it. Chaucer wrote about it. Cromwell shot at it. Hitler bombed it. Time is destroying it. Will you save it?

Mumbled and jumbled

I am in Treeged
I am in Spired
I am in Domitable
I am in Attentive
I am in Doors
I  have been fired and  can’t afford to speak
Stop ringing me up.I am dead.
Stop asking me about that accident last week.It was deliberate
Stop asking me to give you a cigarette.I only know the missionary position:Jesus never smoked.
I do not want to become a Christian.I don’t believe in conversion.
Stop asking if I accept my sins are forgiven.I want to suffer guilt if I do wrong.
Stop telling me Jesus was the Messiah.I don’t believe in believing
I am an unorthodox Jew  so   I do odd things like watching burning bushes and  writing on my Tablet.I have now got a new commmandment
Do not ill treat immigrants or  people you  wrongly call immigrants.After all one might be the Messiah    or Satan.Or me or you one day

The dentist is clever


After the dentist took out my wisdom tooth she told me to sit still for a while.As I was doing that the nurse dangled something in front of me.I was wondering is if she wanted to give it to me. so put out my hand.
She said,It’s your tooth.Well it was covered in blood and had roots like  mature carrot.They were over the moon because they knew [ I did not]’ that it was going to be difficult.
My roots are twice as long as the average so some folk must have short roots.The roots contain a nerve  so my nerves are huge.Does that make me more sensitive than average?I’ve never heard it mentioned.But it may explain why  human beings vary so much.I can’t watch violent films or films about hospitals especially late at night.My friend can watch anything.Well, maybe  not ANYTHING
I am intrigued by these physical aspects.Some folk have very narrow arteries.I never thought much about this

The difference between poetry and prose




The Difference Between Poetry and Prose

Prose is all about accumulation (a morality of work), while poetry as it is practiced today is about the isolation of feelings (an aesthetics of omission). Among other things, prose is principally an ethical project, while poetry is amoral, a tampering with truths which the world of prose (and its naturalistic approach to mimesis) takes for granted. Poetry creates its own truth, which at times is the same truth as the world’s, and sometimes not. Whatever the case, its mimesis is always a rearrangement, at a molecular level, of that axis between the “seen” and the “felt” (that coal chute which connects the childish eye to the Socratic heart), which, were it not for poetry, with its misguided elenchus, would remain obscured. In both classical and modern languages it is poetry that evolves first and is only much later followed by prose, as though in a language’s childhood, as in our own, poetry were the more efficient communicator of ideas. Whether this has to do with the nature of ideation or some characteristic intrinsic to the material evolution of tongues has never been adequately decided. Probably this evolution, from poetry to prose, depends on synergy—between the passion for thought and enthusiasm for new means. Technology also played a roll. With the spread of the printing press after 1440, texts no longer had to be memorized. Poetry’s inbuilt mnemonics (rhyme, meter, refrain, line breaks) were no longer essential for processing and holding on to knowledge. Little hard drives were suddenly everywhere available. But even a century later, in Elizabethan England, English prose had not yet come close to achieving the flexibility of poetry. One need only compare Shakespeare’s blank verse soliloquies to the abashed prose of one of the Elizabethans’ greatest disputants, Richard Hooker, or to the Martin Marprelate tracts. These are differences not only in talent but ones inherent to the medium. Even the King James Bible, “the noblest monument of English prose,” cannot compare to the blank verse of Shakespeare.
