Hee :)

Proust, Remembrance of Things Past:
Tea-soaked madeleine-
a childhood recalled. I had
brownies like that once.
Homer, The Odyssey
Aegean forecast-
storms,chance of one-eyed giants,
delays expected.
St. Augestine, The Confessions:
This is just to say
I screwed around. Forgive me.
I enjoyed it so.
Machiavelli, The Prince:
What I learned at court:
Being more feared than loved - good.
Getting poisoned - bad.
Einstein, Relativity: The Special and General Theory
Cherry blossoms fall
at light speed through curved space-time
and land with a thud.
Defoe, Robinson Crusoe:
Alone for twelve years,
then a footprint in the sand.
Thank God! A servant!
Nabokov, Lolita:
Lecherous linguist-
he lays low and is laid low
after laying Lo.
Tolstoy, war and Peace:
Guns roar, Russia burns.
Where's Andrey? Who is Petya?
Confused, France retreats.
Vatsayana, The Kama Sutra:
Advice for those in
a difficult position.
First, be flexible.
Goethe, Faust:
He's damned-no, he's saved!
For German engineering,
another triumph.
