      This Be The Verse - Philip Larkin

      They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
      They may not mean to, but they do.
      They fill you with the faults they had
      And add some 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.

      Thanks everybody.

      Philip Larkin: excellent.

      Of course, if grown-ups are obsolete, then somebody else must be handing on the misery.

      I'm sure there's a typo in that first line.

      What Larkin meant to say was:

      "They tuck you up, your mum and dad."

      What do you mean you don't believe me?

    7. niznoz 99 months ago | reply

      But surely TT "They tuck you up, our mum and dad, They may not mean to, but they do" with it's suggestion of callous, off-hand, tucking-up, presents a world even more desolate and devoid of happiness than even Larkin intended.

      Put like that niz, desolate indeed...

      I think I might have siad to you, Larkin died when I was a student at Hull University. The best headline the student paper never had, would have been

      "No more Larkin about"

      Magnificence of the picture lies in the innocence of children in the middle and given that the actual taste and a sense of the picture despite the fact exist only on the wall and this indicates the thinking of a painter and photographer, he said is full of surprises
      May be the picture on the other hand express a lot of things but I did not understand them but something resembling distress call
      Thank you for the special photo
      Any
