Lori,

Of course I noticed the challenge forum.  It wouldn't be your site if there weren't brain-frying challenges all over the place. :)   I'll try to get something in for the "Autumn Leaf", but I just don't know if I'll get there in time.

And don't worry, I'm here to stay.  You're stuck with me.  You shouldn't have come up with such a wonderful place for me to play.

Dan

Hello Dan,

Having just returned from a break I have picked up the thread with your joining MM.  May I add the warmest of welcomes to all those already expressed? wave.gif wave.gif

You are just the fellow to help me with a problem that has been bothering me Dan.

Arkansaw  is the name of your State
a subject not up for debate
but help me out here
I'm clueless, I fear
is it Kansas or Kansaw, mate?



(I know REALLY Dan, just love the anomaly! )

Happy to meet you.

Cheers

Ahhh Dan, Dan, what can I say?
Your visit has brought you to stay!
I'm so glad
you're here V-Lad;
we've jolly good fun in play.

WORDplay is what we do;
please accept my welcome to you
to join as we learn
old habits to burn;
new thinking for me and for you.

Well, not so great,  but it is late ...

Blessings,

It's my pleasure to join in the pack,
though the rhyme in this piece sorta lacks.
One little request-
just spoken in jest-
It's OUR KANSAS, and we want it back.


Grace,

Thank you so much for your welcome.  It's nice to see such a friendly community, and I'm honored to be a part.

Dan

Familiar are faces in Mosaic,
the folks are so quick, not prosaic.
I see Merridoll
has joined in the ball.
Let's play as if words . . . algebraic.


Hey Merri,

So good to see you again.  And I'm afraid I've moved past late into "way too damn early".  It's great to be welcomed to MM so wonderfully.

Dan

Hey A,

I'm afraid I've been up for nearly 28 hours now, and just cannot come up with any witty replies (which irks me to no end). Wall.gif

I do appreciate all of you for your friendly welcome to your playground (I got dibs on the monkey-bars!).  It means a lot, and is very well received. blush21.gif

Thanks to all,

Dan

This is quite fun to read!   cloud9.gif

Ok here goes another lame Cleo attempt at limerick:  Speechless.gif  medusa.gif

At MM you'll find quite a crew
we're witty and quite like to chew
on words of our stage
where muses engage
performing in style for you!

There's gods of the lore in our midst
and pharaohs provide ancient twists
on scrolls meant to last
we'll dig up the past
aMUSing your intellect gist!

When all of these words have been read
And Limericks all put to bed
The man who said liquor
was quicker and slicker
Might well have been proud of this thread.


Can't remember his name, but he was a famous American poet!

But if liquor was quicker than words,
then this thread would have gone to the birds.
When getting so soused,
my work gets so doused
in a jumble of meaningless slurs.

Atlantis may fall to the power
of time, in this horrible hour.
Abstain from the tears.
Control all your fears.
Just wait till he's been to the shower.


It's amazing what a couple hours of sleep will do for you (and this pot of pure Kenyan coffee sitting here smart.gif }.

Sometimes when you're awfully tired
and your thoughts are all mickled and mired
You may try hard to write
But you give up the fight
For you find that your muse has expired.

My muse is unamused at your lack
of faith in her craftiness- her knack.
For she has no watch,
but sips at her scotch,
and thinks for my mind, till it comes back.



Yeah, I know.  My muse isn't very amused at this poor effort, either.  But she'll scold me later, then we can make up. devil.gif

Dera Cleo

Inspired by these words in your recent post :


"another lame Cleo"

A Lim'rick by Cleo_Serapsis ?
No better than making her asp piss:
Another lame Cleo ?
While others claim "Leo" !
Truth is - we present Rev Spooner's Twist !

Love
Alan

A muse that has never been kissed?
A Spooner with that tangy twist?

I'll hole with my rips
Wiles no one could ever resist

LOVE-LORN LIMERICK

Heard nubile young lassie from Glen Frear
"Rites pagan; Stonehenge! You come here!"
She offered virginity
For young man's fertility,
Alas, there's nowt but upstanding old menhir.

This person of feminine gender
Was sweet and surprisingly tender
When asked if she would
She cried out "Oh Good!"
And she just couldn't wait to surrender.

I think I'll have to copyright some of these.

Hey, I just woke up!  What do you expect?
