The Lament for the Blogosphere and Other Poems
« on: August 26, 2021, 10:09:54 PM »
At jubal's suggestion:

Where now the blog and livejournal? Where the alert that was blowing?
Where are the drafts file and imagebank, and the wild words flowing?
Where is the strife about small wars, and the cathodes glowing?
Where is debate and discovery, and the archives growing?

They have passed like bits on a floppy, like CD on a scarecrow;
The sites have gone down one by one, by their owners abandoned.
Who shall turn the dry sheaves into green grass waving,
Or behold a sunken ship to the Sun returning?

With apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien

Moved to the poetry section - Exilian Media is for things posted on our ExilianMedia YouTube channel (which is as ever open for submissions) whereas this area is for our own poetry and songwriting and suchlike more generally.



Hm, as the implied remnant, does this make Exilian late-stage Rohan, then?  :)
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
