    Some people think anything sounds profound, as long as it's spoken with a British accent.

    The poet is as original as an irritating alarm clock on a Monday morning.

    Not much to that paradigm is there. "Convince me of something and I'll believe it. Otherwise I won't."

    Earth-shatteringly brilliant, I must say.

    Now that's an up-to-date way to do poetry! And good stuff, too. And even the swearing fits the scene, I reckon..

    "Just this". Yet 'tis still a mystery, and magic does happen, like you and me and the whole shebang from dust and gases. How did "he-she-it, do that - WOW!?

    Seems its mark is that it happens when no one is trying to "make it happen".

    Thanks Trev. ( Wouldn't happen to be a poet yourself, by any chance? You are getting hell of a lot out of those tiles. 🙂 )

    I believe it is called "profanity" not "swearing" unless I am mistaken.
    Maybe my idea of "swearing" is different from yours.

    Superb! Didn't realise he was an aussie as I had only heard his name and the Pop song (which is great btw).

    Thanks.
