Minoan lover (Lyric) by Jeremi B. Handrinos
Crete is where I left you On the first day of Spring Crete is where I left you With kiss and golden ring Crete is where I left you To go fight a King's war Crete is where I left you On a boat from the shore Crete is where I left you Though it tore out my heart Crete is where I left you In a house with no start Crete is where I left you While I die on this field Crete is where I left you With my son and my shield.

My name is Maximus Desimus Meridius
Commander of the armies of the north
General of the felix legions
Loyal servant to the true emporer
Marcus Aurelius.
Father to a murdered son,
husband to a murdered wife,
and I will have my vengeance,
in this life or the next.

Have you got the costume that goes with this soliloquy? I'd cream to see you step of the truck in leather breast-plate and pleated skirt. This is the part were I through my box of popcorn at the screen and walked out. I wrote " I Am the Widow of a Murdered Husband" that night. Mr. Crowe is the spitting image of my beloved's father, no kidding. I loved him in L.A. Confidential, and thought he did a great job with the crap he was given in Beautiful Mind, but this movie is a stinker all around. Foochy!

Is this Movieranker now? I wouldn't call it a stinker, but it sure didn't deserve an Oscar. Neither did Crowe. That bearded bastard. Okay, I'm just being petty now. and jealous.
Oh, and the poem is good. It feels Hellenic.

Tell me Billy-boy, why is it every other reply I get from you contains the word 'jealous'? What exactly makes you jealous? That I'm contemplating other men besides you? Are you becoming possessive? You puzzle me.

Mere coincidence my dear. My dislike of Crowe has nothing to do with you. You just happened to bring up the name. How could I be possesive of you? I don't know you. I don't know your name or what you look like or how old you are...
Just that you write divinely, and are very insightful. Thats it. It's four AM over here. I need to go to sleep. zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Different. It bears the repetition well, but starts to founder. I'd cut verse 3. "House with no start" seems nonsencicle, or stretched at best.

Too many forced rhymes. The concept is original but the forced rhymes ruin it. Good start though.
