    Hmm yeah maybe i exaggerated a teeny weeny bit. The mother and daughter one was good, some were.It's just the weird ones that stick lol. I mainly liked the pre 1914 poems, wrote ********* in the exam. Just praying for the A* now. When did you do your GCSE in it. You seem pretty good at poetry btw, I *think* I saw something of yours in the Cults thread

    yeah i didnt really like the poems when i did it, but yeah i liked that mum and daughter one. i hated and was crap at english, i did it 2 years ago, but for some reason i managed 2 A's, so if your aiming for an A* you can defiantly get it. haha i dont think i'm good at poetry. oh those 2 poems last night, i just fetched that from my collection written when i was in my prime haha.

    The people who, even though they took GCSEs, are still stupid enough not to realise that burning books is just unacceptable!
