Accurse'd Inspiration Demon
« on: December 16, 2009, 03:59:58 am »
I found this poem I had to write for my senior English class. I'd almost forgot about it. One of the things we were SUPPOSED to do was to reiterate a line, and there is a specific kind this is called, I just forget. I thought it was funny.


Sneaky little demon sitting on the sand

He's got work to do

Just relaxing life away, sitting on the sand

He's got work to do

That sneaky little demon is a double fisted drinker!

--That souse--

He's got work to do

Stupid, lazy, inspiration demon.

He's got work to do

Get back here NOW! Stop ignoring me!

You have work to do!

My inspiration cracks an eye; "Oh,

I've work to do?

Well, that's too bad, I'm on vacation,

So I've no work I'll do."

But this essay's due TOMORROW! Please,

You have work to do!

I really have to get this done,

We have work to do!

Sneaky little demon, relaxing in the sun;

"Oh, fine, if you insist,

I will help you get the work done."

The sneaky little demon makes a bone from thinnest air,

'Cause he's got work to do

He tosses it inside my skull,

'Cause that's the work he'll do.

He watches over my shoulder as I type away,

Insisting I don't do it right.

He comes up with new ideas as I slave to finish,

'Cause that's what work he's supposed to do.

Some hours after midnight, the work has been completed.

Now, I say to my demon, let me get some sleep!
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

 :mittens: for pretty much summing up how much of a blessing and a curse inspiration is. Sometimes it's like, DUDE. AWESOME. Write write write write. And then other times it's like. DUDE. I'm in the middle of math and I need to do this wo--damn, that is a good idea. Of course, my favorite is the just about to go to sleep and then an idea hits. Inspiration is such a bitch but it's so neccessary.  :x

I really liked it.
