Lament for a Legionnaire

I'm a legionnaire
Camel in disrepair
Hoping for a frigidaire
To come passing by
I am on reprieve
Lacking my joie de vivre
Missing my gay paris
In this desert dry

And I wrote my girl
Told her I would not return
I've terribly taken a turn
For the worst now I fear

It's been a year or more
Since they shipped me to this foreign shore
Fighting in a foreign war
So far away from my home

If only summer rain would fall
On the houses and the boulevards
And the side walk bagatelles it's like a dream
With the roar of cars
And the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine.
Lord I don't know if I'll ever be back again.

Medicating in the sun
Pinched doses of laudanum
Longing for the old fecund of my homeland
Curses to this mirage!
A bottle of ancient Shiraz
A shattering of distant applause
Is ringing in my poor ears

On the old left bank
My baby in a charabanc
Riding up the width and length
Of the Champs de Elysee

If only summer rain would fall
On the houses and the boulevard
And the side walk bagatelles it's like a dream
With the roar of cars
And the lulling of the cafe bars
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine
Lord I don't know if I'll ever be back again


If only summer rain would fall
On the houses and the boulevard
And the side walk bagatelles its like a dream
With the roar of cars
And the lulling of the cafe bars
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine
Lord I don't know if I'll ever be back again

C+C welcome. More poems later.

The words have a nice melody to them. Don't make morbid poetry, that will just sound emo.
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

it doesn't need to be emo. ex: one stanza form your truly:

Upon the beasts of hell we ride.
Setting fire to the sky.
All in our way will surely die.
We raise the dead up from their graves.
Giving ancient lords new flesh to crave.
Upon your souls the dead shall graze.
And all the while our fire's ablaze.

Hey, I wrote a poem too!
it's called:

"Silva's Mother"
There's a place your mother goes when everybody else is soundly sleeping
Through the lights of beacon street
And if you listen you can hear her weeping,
She's weeping, cause the gentlemen are calling
And the snow is softly falling on her petticoats.
And she's standing in the harbour
And she's waiting for the sailors in the jolly boat.
See how they approach

With dirty hands and trousers torn they grapple 'til she's safe within their keeping
A gag is placed between her lips to keep her sorry tongue from any speaking, or screaming
And they row her out to packets where the sailor's sorry racket calls for maidenhead
And she's scarce above the gunwales when her clothes fall to a bundle and she's laid in bed on the upper deck

And so she goes from ship to ship, her ankles clasped, her arms so rudely pinioned
'Til at last she's satisfied the lot of the marina's teeming minions, and their opinions

And they tell her not to say a thing to cousin, kindred, kith or kin or she'll end up dead
And they throw her thirty dollars and return her to the harbour where she goes to bed, and this is how your fed

So be kind to your mother, though she may seem an awful bother, and the next time she tries to feed you collard greens,
Remember what she does when you're asleep
"If someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill them right back." -Malcolm Reynolds

Pretty good, but it could use more line breaks. :wink:
