Read, Read Everything under the Sun


You ought to read everything under the sun,
Everything that is lightened by the smile of the moon,
All materials that are shocking and disturbing,
And all documents that are musing and entertaining.

Read, read, and do not stop reading the bad poems,
Even the ridiculous ones, with the themes
Which are archaic. I implore you not to stop,
Boredom is more annoying, when you’re full of crap.

Never mind the bad poems such as this introverted one;
In reality, you ought to enjoy yourself and to have fun,
Like a sad genius, a happy nerd or a rich ventriloquist.

Hide the censored books, read part of their preface.
Read all sort of books and reading materials; read at least
A chapter every day, before the bells of the angelus.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
