The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Poetry Challenge


I challenge anyone else to start posting home made poetry regularly. No content limits and whatever style and meter you want. Here is my first salvo:

Cold feet in the morning,
Warm bed at night.
Elvis on the radio,
Singing, baby, it's all right.

Can fulsome retaliate? Will dontEatnachos whither in the face of my rhymes? Stay tuned to find out!

Poetry? What is that crap?

How about I write this little program here instead:

int main()
{
printf("Poetry is balls!\n");
return 0;
}

Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits
On a lurgid bee.
Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes
And hooptiously drangle me
with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon
See if I don't.

O post away,
my vixen of electrons.
O post away,
my site vibrates with emoticons.
O post away,
for I am stricken low by the Decepticons.

My poem you don't want

When taking Plavix
Alone, or with aspirin,
The risk of bleeding
May increase.

Teh, I prefer the risk of blood clots more.

Chuckles, what the hell was that blubbering over at 3B? I am SO not sorry, nor will I apologize for it. Walk like a man...

And Fulsome, I totally heart you but get your face out of PP's crotch already. Be a man, not a porcupine. We can party at the dogs and not have to put our head in a microwave!

AG -- read between the lines on that comment...

Also, there's a long standing tradition that when Chuckles shows up at a party I'm at I pretty much move into damage control mode. Or, if it's reached the point of no return, I just sit there with my beer and watch the hijinks unfold.

I was known as 'The Harbinger' in high school.

I can kill conversations when I walk into a room.
I'm a real live wire,
I'm a walking disaster,
I'm a demolition man.

AG: I guess you don't know sarcasm when I say it. I guess I shouldn't 'apologize' for what I did to their clothes, either...

Velvet shure feels good on a swollen hemorrhoid. Or so the pony told MomH.
