This is London, not Antartica, so why don't the tubes run all night,
You are my Girlfriend, not Molly Ringwald, so why won't you stay here tonight,
This is sixth form poetry not Keats or Yeats, and now we find the part that we both hate.

We love the city because it lets us down, We love the city NOT the suburbs that surround.
We love all the dirty things, that lead us to think, that maybe true love could be found.
We love the city because its how we live, We love the city cause it never loves us back.
We love it all because sometimes, even though they're hard to find, it contains all the virtues we lack.

(Hefner "We Love The City")

Ahh, Barthes, my favorite. Just make vague references to Derrida, even if it's totally inappropriate

I'm finishing up my course on literary theory now. It nearly killed me.

I've read so much I have no idea what Barthes said. It's all mixed up with 'death of the author' and deconstruction. Good luck with that!

you say Semiotics, i say semolina.
now chant: Exegesis, Eisegesis, Intergesis.
and stuff Derrida - get deleuze into the fray and politicise it.

it's a lit theory course on postcolonialism- and my tutor just told me i need to put more of my own argument into my essays. trouble is, l've read so much now i dont have opinions anymore or the ability to put sentences together. Obviously, I need to 'think *outside* the sentence, then everything will be just dandy. Ahem.
