 Buy Collected poems by Kenneth Allott
In my opinion Allott's greatest ever poem is "The Statue" - a romantic poem that could be addressed to anyone at any time, be they man, woman, beast, or child, gay or straight, black or white, able or disabled.
Allott wrote scarcely a bad poem (although there are a few in this collection that are dubious) and even in his lesser works there are marvellous images and powerful insights.
His small body of poems may be dandified and self-conscious, but it is also some of the most moving and deep writing ever to come out of the 1930s and 1940s.

 VFW Buddy Poppy Day set for Sat.
The VFW Buddy Poppy has its genesis in the poem “In Flanders Fields.” VFW Buddy Poppies are required to be assembled by disabled, needy and ageing veterans in VA Hospitals, nursing homes or in some cases in their homes.
Major benefactors include Southland Nursing Home Vets ($783), Atlanta VA Hospital ($1,200), VFW National Home for Children ($1,000), Disabled American Vets ($500), local assistance to needy vets ($1,399), and the purchase of VFW Buddy Poppies ($840).
These Buddy Poppies are free, but the post is collecting contributions for its Veterans Relief Fund that is used to provide relief to veterans, their families, their widows and their orphans.

 Republic of Turkey, Ministry of Culture - Nazım Hikmet
After graduating from the Naval School, Nâzım Hikmet was assigned to Hamidiye Cruiser as a trainee deck officer, he caught cold and pleurisy during a night watch (1919), and as he could not recover his health, he was discharged from military as disabled (1920).
Desiring to form a new poetry, Nâzım Hikmet saw a poem of Maiakowski in a newspaper at Batum and was enchanted from the form of this poem that he could not understand the content of, as he did not know Russian.
Nâzım Hikmet published his first poems that he wrote with syllabic meter in magazines such as Yeni Mecmua, İnci, Ümit and Birinci Kitap, İkinci Kitap, etc. published by Celal Sahir (Erozan).

 World war 1 poetry
Apart from a few hints there is nothing to show that the person is a war victim who has been disabled in a horrific way, the tone of the poem seems cheerful and "looks on the bright side".
However, in the very last line there is a nasty twist, "And thought: "Thank God they had to amputate!"" (L16), this implies that being permanently disabled is better than what he was facing at war, it was worth it.
Unlike the other two poems, this one seems to concentrate on what the man does have, rather than what he is missing out on.

 Renaldo and Clara
Bob Neuwirth, in a mask, is on stage in a small club reading a poem written by a badly disabled black guy named Tony Curtis who sits watching.
At the end of the poem Tony Curtis asks for money (asking for money for poems or songs will be a recurring motif in the film.) Phil Ochs (I think!) comes on stage, takes a guitar and plays a chord.
Bob Neuwirth is on a train (again, the term Rolling Thunder is both the name of an Indian and a train).

 Guardian Unlimited Books Review Ciaran Carson on translating an epic poem by Brian Merriman
Another tradition has it that Merriman composed his poem when he was laid up with a leg injury, while he was engaged to be married; and his lines on the sexual prowess of the disabled, in the last part of the poem, are taken as corroboration of this speculation.
Merriman's poem, for all its rhetorical and satirical extravagance, gives us a real sense of what life must have been like in 18th-century Ireland: its people and their speech, their gestures, their dress, their food and drink, their recreations, and, of course, their sexual mores.
Ciaran Carson describes the pains and pleasures of translating an epic poem by Brian Merriman, the 'wild youth', excellent farmer and fiddler, and tutor to the 18th-century gentry of County Clare

 glbtq >> literature >> Rochester, John Wilmot, Earl of
In a poem like "The Disabled Debauchee," Rochester's persona is so wrapped up in sexual ecstasy that in recalling a ménage à trois with his mistress and a page boy, he cannot remember which sexual roles each of the participants played.
Although many readers have focused on Rochester's scathing satires on the upper class, as well as the "Satyr Against Reason and Mankind" (one of his "cleanest" poems) as the most intellectually challenging of his body of work, it is in his satires against sexuality, particularly heterosexuality, that Rochester's poetic voice finds its most powerful expression.
Rochester frequently attacked the king and his multiple mistresses in poems like "A Satyr on Charles II."

In slightly less than a thousand lines, the poem describes the conflict of vices and virtues as a battle in the style of Virgil's Aeneid.

 May Sinclair and the First World War by Suzanna Raitt - Ideas, Vol. 6, No. 2, 1999
Sinclair's interest in him as a character reveals her concern for those who are left out of the "herd," as Trotter called it: women and men who are disabled in some way—age, physique, psychic make-up.
Sinclair's second war poem, "Dedication (to a Field Ambulance in Flanders)" (dated March 8, 1915) appeared as the epigraph to the book version of the Journal and speaks even more directly to her own experience.
Sinclair may have fantasized about the pleasures of battle, but there was clearly something about her behavior that suggested she was, understandably enough, less than enthused at the prospect of participating in it in the flesh.

For those who know the poem, "In Flanders Fields" written by John McCrae, a doctor in the First Canadian Brigade during the Second Battle of Ypres, the poppy stands out as the symbol of those who were killed or disabled by war.
The cause of McCrae's friend's violent end was the Second Battle of Ypres, 1915, a battle in which the Germans unleashed 5,700 cylinders of chlorine gas with devastating effect.
It was the first time the new and horrible weapon had been used, leading to the dramatic result of an entire unit of French colonial troops, seen fleeing to the rear, leaving their gasping and dying comrades in the front-line trenches.
