Lenge siden sist


Vel møtt igjen! Sphloggen er nå gjenopplivet etter en lengre pause.

Hva passer da bedre enn en lyrisk liten fanfare. 

Diktet nedenfor er kjent av mange, men det kan i grunnen ikke gjentas ofte nok.


av Philip Larkin

They fuck you up, your mom and dad.

They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they had

And add som extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn

By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.

It deepens like a coastal shelf.

Get out as early as you can,

And don't have any kids yourself.
