I am quite relieved that you volunteered - I don't think I could have managed - you have plenty of time to fine-tune it.......

in the meantime (not tonight) I'll see if I can find any more of our old site lurking around on teh intahweb......

I am pretty convinced that we might have to be ruthless with members who spam/hate

we might have to incorporate banning into our new rules.......(as long as it's not me heheheheh e Razz )

I am glad all is well.
things should be swell,
things were bad,
I got sad.

I continued my views ,
And saw the news
About the new site,
it was right

thanks to you all,
I hope we play ball,
this poem is very bad,
but I am not sad !

This bus one? -

please catch a train
to where I am
I will meet you
and greet you
badge you
sign you in
show you where the loos are
exit signs and fire control
I will swallow you whole
if you catch a train
to where I am

please catch a plane
to where I am
I will disembark you
meet you on the runway
take you through customs
acclimatise you
find your latest role
I will swallow you whole
if you catch a plane
to where I am

please take a boat
to where I am
I will be waiting at the gate
I will take your bags
I will arrange a cab
and a hotel
I'm on parole
but I'll swallow you whole
if you take a boat
to where I am.....


I googled "poetry corner" +bus acrosstheuniverse.forumotion then looked at the cached page.

I'm at work during the day - 3-10pm so I don't answer or post - I would be mortified if my company found out the things I post.....Embarassed

I haven't written anything since that villanelle I wrote in SJ's thread

I usually only write one if somebody mentions it or I think of it.....

I can write bad poetry very quickly....hehehehehe geek

(not as bad as the one above - heheheeh Dr Emu's valiant effort)

I might write one later tonight....after I've settled down (ie.....had a few glasses of wine)

I don't really care if they get lost or I never see them again

they're not exactly high art

For fun I'd thought of writing something like an incantation to ward off ratbags and evildoers from this forum...hey, wouldn't that lend itself well to doggerel?


I don't write well, but I love to feel inspired. This place inspires me very much. Very Happy

that's a good idea - you should do it......

I like writing the offal stuff that I write.....

it's fun

I always used to write a peom for people's birthdays on the first forum I was at........some of those were very clivvir.....hehehehe....that was the hacking/geek forum my ex used to own (all guys) where I first coined the word teh.......(my 15 minutes)

I like humorous poems and stuff.....

I don't think I've ever really written a good love poem - I've only been in love once and it lasted for about six months......

sometimes I write a really good poem when I'm consciously trying

you should write one

I'll write one later

I have to study 'harpies' a little before I write anything. Very interesting creatures. They steal food from the blind! (Their name originates from Greek 'snatchers'.) I think it takes a north wind to blow them back to their caves, where they can caw their lamentations, or else they can bellow in the eerie trees. Something like that.

"Harpies. Description, A winged beast, with the head and breasts of a woman, and the body of a bird. Features, Noisy, filthy, and always hungry"

...oh dear...that's a bit nasty...

We don't want any beastly men either, so we'll have to find some sort of reference to "dog's of Zeus" so we can tell them to bugger off as well. flower

sadly the only other person who ever called me astute was my psychiatrist......hehehehe

not really something you go around boasting about lol......

I'm just good at spelling.......according to Pinz that is nothing to be proud of..........(never stopped me)

it's like the Home Alone movie when Mccauley Culkin or whatever his name was said 'I'm a kid - that's my job'

I'm a proofreader - that's my job......professional pedant

I feel like I'm in a tepee tonight smoking peace pipes with funny shit in them....hehehehe

I'm waiting for the braves to come back with the spoils of war (hopefully no scalps)

you seem a bit uppity to me - but that's probably cos I'm still tender from the 'you need to grow an intellect' incident

...sigh...it's a melodrama emoticon.
I was new.
I was untrained and uninducted.
My computer was breaking.
I thought I was being funny.
I thought you were being mean.
Someone else used a trigger word that cuts very deep.
I used to be a doormat.

I will watch my apostrophes just for you... Very Happy
