lost_spook: (Six)
In the meantime, a fun piece I wrote when I read G K Chesterton's A Ballade of Suicide while looking for something else.

Ballad of Suicide (I Think I Will Not Hang Myself Today)
(Sixth Doctor, All ages)

Six should not be left alone with his mood swings...

The poem sounded so like Six I couldn't help it.  Aside from everything else, it even mentions H G Wells and has the line: "And decadents decay and pedants pall."  Plus, I have a feeling that the Doctor (or some of him) might get on well with Chesterton.  His celebration of the small things in life particularly.  Four and Six would enjoy his attitude to wine, I suspect.  ("I don't get where the water goes as long as it doesn't get into the wine.")

"An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered.  An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered."  (G K Chesterton 'On running after one's hat'). 

And the fact that he was going to write an ode to the things in his pocket, but "It would be too long and the age of epics is past."
