 Hallow Men we’ve become2

But When We Were Young3

Weren’t we told that we all were Supposed To Grow Old?4

Aren’t we tired of feeling like Autumn Leaves?5

How low will we go until We All Fall Down?6

    I love this series, Benjamin, the way you’re able to craft poetry out of song titles. Very creative! Looking forward to reading the next one.

    Wow. Awesome. I really like how you entwine the titles. I love “Hallow Men we’ve become”, such an emotive line. You cover the idea of how life feels like “autumn leaves” compared to how it is portrayed to us as children very well, and it is very true. Life does seem that way at times.

  3. I really like your experimental approach to poetry. Keep it coming!

    Very interesting constructions. I’m going to need think on this a while, maybe I’ll try one of my own. Thank you for sharing something that is both old and new 🙂
