There's been a couple of times in episodes where he's done a sudden mad grin and I've thought "that's very Tom", and then I was scrolling through the f-list this morning and saw this:

Peter Capaldi looking like Tom Baker

and genuinely did a double take. The wicked, crinkly, mischievous TOMNESS of that is just off-the-scale as far as I am concerned.

What do you guys think?

 I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud, 
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle, 
Skin and bone.
 
And just as I 
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.
 
That’s why we 
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. 

So... what did we think of Smile?

Still I Rise by Maya Angelou

bairnsidhe: (Default)
[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there's nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

The Silent Sentinel by Josh Lee

bairnsidhe: (Default)
[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry
 The sun has gone without a glow;
No moon is there to shine tonight,
And sleepy stars refuse to show,
There is no noise; there is no light.

The silent sentinel walks his post,
While thoughts are flying through his head,
Before him stalks a mighty host;
They are the spirits of the dead.

He sees the patriarchs of old,
The scholars of great renown,
The bondsmen who to chains were sold;
He sees the fool and royal clown.

He sees the kings of kingly mien;
He sees the warriors strong and brave,
And all the dead are in that train
For every soul has left the grave.

Belshazzar lived, but had to die,
And mighty Caeser joined the throng;
Napoleon's men had passed him by,
And Washington had come along.

The silent sentinel walks his post
While thoughts are flying through his head.
"How soon," he thinks, "will my own ghost
Be keeping step among the dead?"

Who leads the army of the dead?
The greatest general ever known.
They say that God is at the head
And he commands it from the throne.

On earth the great commanding head
Requires citations for the deed.
Not so the Captain of the Dead,
He sees with omnipresent heed.

In the silence of the night
He notes the struggle for the goal;
He sees the hero bravely fight
The bitter battle in his soul.

We mortals never know the truth;
The bravest deeds are never known
By men of earth forsooth
But by the Commandant alone.

And so He decorates heroes
With His divine, immortal hands,
And those deserving praise He knows,
He knows them all from foreign lands.

He pins a cross upon a mother,
But, no, it's not a Croix de Guerre;
He pins a cross upon another,
It is the cross that Christ did bear.

Women who bear the battle's brunt,
Women who wait in silent prayer
For husbands serving at the front,
Come forth their honor to share.

Before the Army of the Dead,
He calls a boy who peddles news,
A weary soul who scrubs for bread,
A cobbler who repairs old shoes.

And many heroes of the earth
Are never decorated there,
And many men of royal birth
In that great honor have no share.

For God respects no birth or rank
But metes out justice unto men,
Rewarding justly Hun or Yank
For every deed of sword or pen.

The silent sentinel walks his post
While thoughts are flying through his head.
He knows that men from every coast
At last will march among the dead.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.

*KABOOM!*
