Quotes about 999

Thomas Edison

I have not failed 999 times. I have simply found 999 ways how not to create a light bulb.

Charles F. Kettering

An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he's in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots.

If you interviewed 1,000 politicians and asked about whether the media's too soft or too hard, about 999 would say too hard.

Emily Dickinson

Superfluous were the Sun

999

Superfluous were the Sun
When Excellence be dead
He were superfluous every Day
For every Day be said

That syllable whose Faith
Just saves it from Despair
And whose "I'll meet You" hesitates
If Love inquire "Where"?

Upon His dateless Fame
Our Periods may lie
As Stars that drop anonymous
From an abundant sky.

A Lunatic Song

The sun shone on my emergency
As I lost the thread of your fears,
Like an infidel calling Jesus
Dialling 999 through his tears.

Why was the siren screaming?
Why did the young men shout?
Did a bomb go off while I was dreaming
In the Ambulance of Doubt?

I'll never know the answer
Though your slender fingers give me a thrill,
And even if you've got cancer
I'll be in there for the kill!

I'd rather have your gentle corpse
To guide me through the night
Than a living, breathing prostitute
Or a loathsome catamite!

The Absent Element

covers of earth
consumed by dirt
consumed by greed
right since birth
thoughtless whispers
unknown smiles
this body shivers
as I walk these miles

covers of space
overshadowed by faith
constricting inside
this prolonged wait
demented schemes
a preoccupied mind
conspiring themes
a satire rewind

covers of air
ceaselessly dark everywhere

Psychotic Prankster’s Reaction

When I’m an old timer,
I’ll walk into a diner,
order a bowl of custard,
with a large dollop of mustard!
Diving in head first,
to quench my thirst,
belching ‘til your eardrums burst!

Once I’ve qualified for
cheap fares on the bus,
and smell of musty dandruff,
mixed with underarm fungus,
I’ll get a pet dog,
and share her fleas,
whilst brandishing and
hurling allsorts of obscenities!

When I’m an old fogey,
won’t sit in the corner, growing mouldy,
I’ll take off my stereotypical flat cap,

Teenage Pregnancy

Giving birth at a tender age was not my intention,
How did this happen to me is still a confusion.
'Pregnant', me ha! never!
But his charming looks and boy was he clever.
The naive girl that I was, believed his lies and how he loved me so much,
I could not resist his charm but he convinced me wit his soothing and caressing touch.

The first time I saw Danny, he looked so handsome, strong and fun,
But coming to the end he turned out to be a real bum.
He wooed me with words and won me over,
I was shocked we would actually exchange our numbers.
When he first called, I could not believe it is really Danny.
We talked and talked for more than three hours,
Days and weeks had past; just before you know it we became closer.

Danny called me during the midday and told me to come home by him to lime and to have a bit of one on one time together.
I agreed to his idea but what did i know?
I thought all the girlfriends were doing it.

As soon as I entered his house, he started kissing me everywhere and all about.

Doctrine of Humanity

A barrel of cyanide inside our mind
all Utopian dreams died long behind
feeding slowly and a decaying thought
screaming inside as every skull is shot
weapons of mass destruction evolved
hungry child's problem never solved
as the blame shifts from Marx to Christ
illusions of enlightenment, a dreadful sight
million bodies crave for burial
is harmony a word for real?

A nameless mass with a senseless life
progress slowly towards an endless divide
With a storm of violence sharpening the terror
Are we randomly human or are we just an error
Name it a beast or just a primate of hate
Do you wonder how much horror beholds our fate
Theres Pain for all and all for pain
Sickness injected inside this insane brain
The blame still shifts like an endless ocean

Missing Persons

Have you seen this face?
Does it ring a bell?
Does it strike a chord somewhere in your mind?
And theres a big reward,
If you help us solve this crime,
And if you recognize this face, dial 999.
Have you seen this face?
Dig deep in your mind.
Has anybody seen that little girl of mine?
She was always a rover,
But Im afraid to say shes strayed
Too far this time.
Now Im sitting at home, staring at the wall.
Waiting for the missing person to call.
Waiting for the message Im dreading to hear.
Waiting to confirm my darkest fears.
Shes a missing person, I wish I could see
All of the places she might be.
Maybe I stopped her from being free.
Maybe there was something missing in me.
