Mehso-so

I thought Ms Parker was a happy, witty day drinker. But this oeuvre to suicide says that was not so. She attempted suicide three times then finally her broken heart gave up. The poems are excellent, but not so worthy that you should read this if the topic frightens you because I also found that it was not enlightening in any way.

dabbe LOVE! This reminds me of a passage in THE ILIAD where Zeus goes on for about 3 pages, listing all of the women he has been with in front of his wife/sister, Hera. Not the brightest bulb is Zeus. 💙🤣💚 12mo

#NationalPoetryMonth Day 19: "Neither Bloody Nor Bowed" I ? Dorothy Parker

quote
GoneFishing
Enough Rope: Poems | Dorothy Parker

A Very Short Song

Once, when I was young and true.
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.

The sweeter the apple, the blacker the core. Scratch a lover and find a foe!

Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses.

rubyslippersreads An unfortunate (and untrue) stereotype. 😂🤓😂 7y

Unfortunate Coincidence

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying,
Lady, make a note of this —
One of you is lying.

Enough Rope: Poems | Dorothy Parker

Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.

Enough Rope: Poems | Dorothy Parker

If I didn't care for fun and such,
I'd probably amount to much.
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.

VioletBramble This poem, in it's entirety, is my favorite by Parker. 7y
