Spike Milligan

(16 April 1918 – 27 February 2002 / Ahmednagar)

Feelings


There must be a wound!
No one can be this hurt
and not bleed.

How could she injure me so?
No marks
No bruise

Worse!
People say 'My, you're looking well'
.....God help me!
She's mummified me -
ALIVE!

    Spike Milligan always had a unique sense of humour which carries in this poem. One should see the funny side of life, and in the ordinary Spike found the absurd fascinating.
    One should think of the Goon Show as the more absurd version of this poem.
    Humour is a great restorative, particularly to something treated so seriously as spurned affection (which I assume is the object of this poem) . (Report) Reply

    The serious side. Yet he can still conclude with something of a laugh. Wonderful. Paul. (Report) Reply

    This poem is really really A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
    Thank you so much for giving us the chance to enjoy it, Mr. Milligan :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
