    Songs and poetry?

    What is it with all this learning of songs and poetry and Russians? Do all Russians really "dig" poetry or something? I hate poetry. I have these two Russian teachers always bringing poems to me and wanting me to learn them. I'm going nuts, I'd rather read a medical manual. Now I have been given a song by ДДТ to translate. I hate them too! But....I suppose they are better than Yani or Michael Bolton.
    OK so shoot me, I guess I am not Elegant and Cultured after all.

    Oh look I can add a poll to this hmm!

    Big fan of insecticides, p'raps?

    There's a time and a place for poetry, surely. I doubt Shakespeare's plays would have the same power if they were written in straight prose, for example, and I can happily sit and read Burns. On the other hand, I was made to read a whole load of English poetry at school that just turned me off completely, I simply couldn't see the point in it.

    So, erm, dunno

    Because if you were invited to a dinner party and told to bring a friend you would get about the same reaction showing up with me as you would with a bottle of DDT.
