So, I wrote a bit of poetry for a Bowie tribute.

I need concrit.

Also, I took the poem Funeral Blues and changed the words. I say it's transformative work and credit is given.

Mark says if you change the words in a poem, even if it has the same cadence, it's original work. I don't believe I changed enough to call it original, but I think a discussion on where the line is drawn for that type of thing would be very interesting, so go ahead.

Um... first line. Was that meant to be 'cock' or clock?

Mark looked at me funny too. I guess it must be a western thing.

Old timey belief was that roosters call to wake the sun up and if the rooster was dead, the dawn would never come an the world would be plunged into darkness.

I suspect it's because Bowie's role as the Goblin King was described as two of his notable 'parts'... so to speak. [it's the tight pants you see.]

No one should put away that cock. It should be near Rasputins in a museum somewhere LOL!

You know... Andy Warhol made a bronze cast of it sometime in the 80's or 90's. I remember because it created a bit of a fuss being exhibited at the time.

Hmm, makes you wonder if anyone's thought of doing copies in silicon.
