Ok, so I handed in an english piece of work about a holiday in scotland anyway I came back and handed it in and he just took the piss so bad saying it was too simple. I need you help can you make this really complex and englishy to try and get one back. It's GCSE standard so fire away.

I'd say do a paragraph, take your pick. You basically have to tell this poem as if it were a story.

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind.

Gas! Gas! Quick, boys! – An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling,
And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime . . .
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.
In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent14 for some desperate glory,
The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est
Pro patria mori.


Cheers, together we can own this tosser.

So...you're asking the Pit for help?
When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...


I didn't tell you
That the only dream
Is Valium for me

Yes, the guy was taking the piss and never turns up for lessons and just rips everything I do. i want it to take the piss back by being clever.

Absolutely not. Do it yourself. Disguising other peoples' work as your own will do you no favours at all.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

Ah, Wilfred Owen. One of his more famous poems, and very easy to write as a story, it has such a personal view and his opinion is so strong.

Write your own damn work. If the teacher says it's too simple then they're not stupid, you're just bad at english.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

^ Aye.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
