I found this on the internet and it went down a storm in my class. I've used the original Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss for young children, but this is great for angst-ridden teenagers. They all get very excited by the macabre.

Green Eggs and Hamlet

I ask to be, or not to be.
That is the question, I ask of me.
This sullied life, it makes me shudder.
My uncle's boffing dear, sweet mother.
Would I, could I take my life?
Could I, should I, end this strife?
Should I jump out of a plane?
Or throw myself before a train?
Should I from a cliff just leap?
Could I put myself to sleep?
Shoot myself, or take some poison?
Maybe try self immoloition?
To shuffle off this mortal coil,
I could stab myself with a fencing foil.
Slash my wrists while in the bath?
Would it end my angst and wrath?
To sleep, to dream, now there's the rub.
I could drop a toaster in my tub.
Would all be glad, if I were dead?
Could I perhaps kill them instead?
This line of thought takes consideration -
For I'm the king of procrastination.

very nice ..

but i feal some sad on ur Poetry ...

This would make someone want to commit suicide more than help them. It gives them a lot of ideas. Maybe for some teenagers with attitude problems, it could be one of the few things that gets their attention in class......but imagine.......how would you feel if one of your students killed themselves not long after reading this? Maybe for adult students I would try it, but for younger ones including teenagers, I would be very hesitant.

Interetingly I've just written a characterising of Romeo and Juliet ( Shakespeare) for a student at Art Academy and the absurd style is very sinilar to this poem. I can send it to anyone by E mail.

Yeah, post it here!

It's a bit long and I don't know how if and how I can copy it here.
Ok. So here's my characterisaion of Romeo.

Motto: " A love struck Romeo on the famous streets of Verona.." Dire Straits

Romeo was really struck.
Juliet will never be his wife. That's sure.
At the Marketing management course last year he has learned about choosing the right alternative.
Like laying an the shadow of a big oak stroking the night crawlers and dreaming.
Changing his Orange card to Vodafone after two SMS-less days.
Calling his publisher to ask about the sales of his last love poems volume and act accordingly.
Buying a Ck One and trying to find a guy.
Buying green contact lens and trying to find a girl.
Changing the channel to Big Brother.
Getting drunk.
Getting drunk.
But , sadly, Romeo was a real romantic lover. with creole skin, curly black hair, azurro eyes, and pink soul. For him Juliet was everything. The birds' song. the crickets' chirping. The fish on the bottom of the sea. But, as even big companies as Microsoft, he had bad points too.
He had meanly killed Juliet's innocent brother.( Of course , noone's innocent.) He was quite a revenger. He negated the law of family, the law of the Church, the law and spirit of the era.
Juliet was an obsession. Some sort of muse making him crazy instead of making him write.
What more can we say about Romeo?
If he was living now he would probably analyse the alternatives more carefully. Love is the supreme power. Love dies anyway.
The chathartic feeling of dying with an immense feeling of love in your heart can be irresistable.
wow..this is no poem to help anyone feel better!!

please don't post poems like this on wesites...

if a child took their life from reading this..it wouldn't

be good...oxox
