    I thought they were in for some luck
    With that Dubya a POTUS lame duck
    That the Dems could impeach,
    But with Dick in the breach
    They'd get far too much bang for their buck.

    I'll go for a T-shirt with
    "Hand over all your chocolate and nobody gets hurt"

    It'll be no real security threat until some pitiful trembling soul hands over a carob bar...

  • According to QANTAS   10 years 43 weeks ago

    If I ever fly Qantas, I will make sure to wear a t-shirt that says "I HATE PUPPIES!!!" Or maybe "I HOPE THEY SERVE PEANUTS ON THIS FLIGHT, ALLERGIC SUCKAS". But then again, what DOESN'T have the potential to offend other customers?

    Well, they sorta did last november. As for the guy on top, he can't be replaced for two more years. And he can't be impeached, as that would leave Cheney in charge, a man universally recognized to be much worse than Bush.

    Hmmm. It seems I've been missing out on Thomas Hood.

    There is something sinister about Hood's sense of humour, a trait that was to reappear in the "black comedy" of the latter 20th century. His pages are thronged with comic mourners and undertakers, and a corpse is always good for a laugh. He was famous for his punning, which appears at times to be almost a reflex action, serving as a defense against painful emotion. Of his later poems, the grim ballads "The Dream of Eugene Aram, the Murderer" and "The Last Man," "The Song of the Shirt," "The Lay of the Labourer," and "The Bridge of Sighs" are moving protests against social evils of the day--sweated labour, unemployment, and the double sexual standard.

    Thanks for bringing him to my attention.

    I hadn't read that before - thanks. Of course, the November poem I always think of is Thomas Hood's...

    Thanks.
    November Defrosted was written as a response to that northern hemispherist, Robert Frost and his poem My November Guest.

    I stole his rhythm and the last words from each line and dragged them down under. ;-)

    Well, I'll geep on dropping by, then:) I like the new pome, by the way - not least because of its antipodean take on the whole November theme (the nights are encroaching ever further into the pale days on this side of the ball; a long, cold winter looks likely).

    I love nice weather outside kdrfqnb@plasa.com

    It's not so much dead as lapsed into a coma. I still poke the occasional link into the Wall Spatterings, but I'm struggling for blogging inspiration (and time) at the moment. PhaWRONGula has a similar lassitude.

    Thanks for the reminder, outeast. I should make some time.

    Is this site now dead? I check in now and then, but alas new posts seem to have dried up entirely...

  • Virge's Guestbook   11 years 10 weeks ago

    We're back to working.
    There was about half an hour during which the server wasn't responding (or was so slow that the site was effectively unusable). I can't see any obvious reasons in the logs.

  • Virge's Guestbook   11 years 10 weeks ago

    OK Virge... hope its nothing to do with the troubles Chris is having?

  • Virge's Guestbook   11 years 10 weeks ago

    Hmmm. It's having some problems. I'll see what I can find out.

  • Virge's Guestbook   11 years 10 weeks ago

    What's happened to the OEDILF site Virge? I can't get onto it.

  • Virge's Guestbook   11 years 13 weeks ago

    Excellent site, added to favorites!!h

  • Beast Poems   11 years 13 weeks ago

    Thanks for the input Sean, but you left something out. You've thrown in the obligatory spoilsport "this is pointless" comment, but you haven't told us what you would consider merits attention.

    I expect so much more from a drive-by snark.

  • Beast Poems   11 years 13 weeks ago

    Wow. Some serious discussions going down here. I think you guys need to find a some serious hobbies! a little to much time debating over pointless poems and rambles.

  • Inclination   11 years 16 weeks ago
