Thirst (Grook-y Look-y)

the thirst for knowledge
makes one drown in mysteries
the thirst for happiness
makes one drown in miseries 

** July 13, 2010---I'm writing this with a half-asleep

grasp this form?? I need to sleep!! & the wind's 
howling outside too!!! Thanks for all who'll give their insights

    Well, I was wrong about Charles liking this one( see comment below) He liked your other one so much better lol. I will give you an A+ on your other Grook. In fact, I am going to put it to my Favs. I guess, you have the 'classic' format and paradox in this one here....but you have 2 huge paradoxs split into 4 lines. If you centered on only one paradox, either 'knowlege/mystery or happiness/misery, maybe it would become a very strong Grook?~Chris

    NIKKO THIS is much better as a GROOK. I am sure this would be similar to the type the famous Grook poet would have even penned! I'm so happy to see you figured it out. I was here longer than I wanted to be (of course) but less time than NORMAL haha. I gotta hurry off here now. Will just try to get up early to see contest wininers. Luv, Andrea

    I had a Grook going, and I used the rhymes of misery and mystery....and the word happiness is in it. It is kind of similar, but I have a different, more uplifting premise to my paradox. Wasn't going to post it because it is so similar to this one and many others, but it was an old parable that floated through my head, and I made it anew~Chris

    Nikko, this reads like a 'classic' Grook to me. And, you stayed awake that whole time.... I believe that Charles will really enjoy this one. Well done for not giving up ha ha!~Chris
