The Evil Laugh of Arthur

A Poem By James // 1/12/2016

The evil laugh of Arthur
Descended down the stair;
It made the night seem darker,
And warned me to beware...

Lest craziness engulf me,
Consuming all my brain:
And nothing then be left me,
Save conscience gone insane.

The evil laugh of Arthur
It fills this house's halls,
When he's up late, much farther
Than wisdom e're allows.

His friends will moan, thus pleading,
"Oh, Arthur, please, forbear!
Cease and desist thy leading,
Of all unto despair!"

But on he laughs and cackles,
This brother, yes, of mine,
And on the sound will echo,
Until the end of time.

"My greatest wish for my writing is that it would point you to the Savior."

Hmmmmm...

Hmmmmm...

The fact that you posted this makes me think you might be right about the results of my evil laugh.

"Reason itself is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all." - G. K. Chesterton

This is hilarious! hahahaha.

This is hilarious! hahahaha. Very clever, nice rhythm, and I love the classic style juxtaposed with the silly message.

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Wow, I read the first line

Wow, I read the first line and was like, "What?! Sibling teasing poem!" Reminded me of a poem my friend wrote for me when we were little about how I dropped a pear when she jumped out of the corner.
Keep the poem up! It's really well written and funny.

"It is not the length of life, but the depth of life." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Brilliant ;)

This sounds like something every author from a large family would be somehow inspired to write once in his/her life and this was extremely well done. I love crazed laughter from sleep-deprived guys.

When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.

Ooh! This Should Be Good! *clicks on title*

Ha! Families!
This poem is basically Brighid, lemme just say....

Beautiful, beautiful! Well done! This poem really made me laugh with its brilliance and pure truth.
