I suspect Bono was being deadly serious when he wrote this. A few lines made me laugh out loud:

I think I hate being indecisive.

Absolutely. The article writers interpretations are pretty funny.

Q) How pretentious is Bono?
A) Read the poem in the link and you'll find out.

Thanks for feeding my growing 'dislike' of Bono.

i think those are the lyrics from the song "Elvis Ate America" from the Passengers album.  they really don't read very well, do they?

i like U2, and i like Bono, but he is a dick! :)

If you didn't read "cheesestringz" response I will post it here!


Bono
Alot of fuss
Bono
Breeds disgust
Bono
The centre of the cosmos
Bono
I have to try and suppress
my unrest
the stress
caused when Bono molests.....................................my soul.

I Digress.

Back to

Bono
We're one
Bono
But......we're not the same

Take aim as i exclaim
"Bono!!
Return from whence you came!"
Bono
I'll take the blame
when Bono is maimed
or if Bono only ends up lame
If Bono still breathes
i have brought shame
upon my family name.

His name
again.......is not:
*Shane
*Dwayne
*Wayne
*Elaine
*"Be good and you will be lonesome." - Mark Twain
*Kayne
*Jane
*Andy Dufrene
*Lorraine

"In a strange twist of fate, Bono was struck and killed in a crosswalk today, when an obese Elvis impersonator was temporarily distracted changing the station when a U2 song came on the radio......"

Bloody hell, what a load of nonsensical, pretentious bollocks. It would be shite if anyone had written it - it's not good poetry at all - but the fact that it's Bono just makes it worse.  He really is such a w**ker, isn't he?
