Clancy, my fictitious friend.
C. J. Black©β 13 of 13.
What are you looking for asked a perplexed Fictitious Clancy?
Searching for an intellectual tickle I replied or something to tickle the readers fancy!!
I have no idea how he landed in my subconscious, but from frog spawn etc; etc; etc;
Hopefully I’ve joined all the dots
He is quite harmless really but then again, I’m assured leopards do at times change their spots.
You intellectual, smirked Fic Clancy
I’d hate to be your ventriloquist dummy I fancy
It wasn’t like Fic to be snide with his remarks
I told him in no uncertain manner, that out of 10 he’d deserve no marks
Fic was rather taken aback by this
Said he’d forget what I’d said and was willing to dismiss –
This bone of contention I seemingly had to pick with him
I said just a minute you started this discussion – now my patience was getting slim.
What to do to resolve this matter
Before this friendship I’m forced to shatter
Took myself to one side had a discussion on the subject
Thought about it long and hard – how to resolve it was my main object
I find when I have a problem to resolve
The best bet is to get lost in the record collection – watch the vinyl revolve
Fic Clancy and I have an eclectic collection
Depending on the mood determines the selection
More than likely start with Haggard followed closely by the late George Jones and some Mr. Tear Drop (Marty Robbins)
Then we’d beef it up a little with some classic vintage 60’s pop
A great way it must be said
To clear the mind and put quarrels to bed
Then when matters are thrashed out and resolved
We’d both agree a truce – problem solved
Fic would never be one to hold a grudge or leave a problem there to fester
If you were following his antics you’ll know he likes to play the court jester
So our discussion was on what caused this dilemma we find ourselves in
Fic said he heard a rumour that he was destined for the shred-it bin
I assured him this would not happen unless I was otherwise provoked
But for the time being he was destined for oblivion – unless, I joked
Those that who have followed thus far wish us to return and their fancies tickle
Me – I would never count my chickens – I’m a member of Joe Public I know to well the meaning of the word fickle!!!
