I nickednamed her the psycho-plath because she was a bit wierd. Great poetry, though.

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

I read her work for GCSE English, and wasn't overly impressed to be honest, although I'm not a major fan of any poetry, so don't take my word as a good judgement of her talent.
