My cup floweth over with compliments
Thank you, thank you, Ladies and Gents
To all visitors from far flung places
Arms are now outstretched – warm embraces
I am just a simple “scribbler” of words with not a lot to say
Unlike the Potter who gets great results from “mucking” around in clay
It’s such a pleasure to sit and watch an artist at their work
While I sit alone away from the world – I know I’m a proper jerk
But this is me it’s what I am, its way too late to change
If it was possible though, could I please be a cowboy out on the range
I guess we all fantasise about what we’d like to be
Go on leave a comment for everyone to see
Expose yourself to all in Blogville, we promise not to laugh
You can be very auspicious in your choice or of course you can be naff
Then again you may wish to keep it to yourself and not allow us in
The curiosity of it all will leave us in a spin
But we’re an understanding lot; I guess you know by now
We’ll accept a compromise anything to avoid a row.
So here is the compromise to get you off the hook
Compose a poem in eight lines (including the word fantasise) place it in the comment box
There you are – go at it and the best of luck.
Here is a sample of what is required –
Your starter for 10 –
Who does he think he is issuing this exercise?
That is to include the word fantasise
That’s an impossible task, be sure to let him know
If I wasn’t the civil person I am I’d tell him where to go
Or better still would be, to say nothing at all
Let him stew in his own in his own juices and on his own sword fall
That will make him think twice and not be such a smart ass
My answer in his comment box will have one word only – pass.
