SOmebody burn this to disk for the eventual investigation. Confessions in the halls of MOAB are probably priveleged, though...

We are being lambasted with blooms; spring roses and chrysalis and iris and dozens of others are exploding in chlorophyll and color. The birds perform air-support chorus as they call in the bloom-strikes until our ears ring and our eyes are all bedazzled with the sound and fury of it all.   The shock and awe of Life At Work surpasseth all understanding.

Braggart! I didn't know you had a "thing" for plants, but as long as they're consenting adults....

But you reminded me that I have iris bulbs to plant. My daffodils are in full cry, as are the grape hyacinths, the forsythia looked and looks like a yellow explosion, and I noticed some tiny red flowers peeking out from under a plant (I think they're frightened by the work going on).

At fifty-five thousand and nine-fifty-eight
The burden of glory shines bright on our plate
With fifty-two more posts
(Well, now fifty-one)
The K's will click up! Our good deed will be done!
And none can ignore , as our triumphing shineth
That the quality here is of only the finest.
No scalawag lackwits nor slackers are we
Who paper the halls of the M.O.A.B!
It's only the greatest! Only the best!
The purest, the finest, the best of BS!
So dig in your wit-pit and bring out your jests!
With irony, sarcasm, dryness and zest!
Fail not, as the night turns on toward the day
To advance our Great Mother to her fifty-sixth Kay!

Dr. Rowell M. Arriffer, Poet Laureate
Village of Skinderflintøn, Norway

ANd why did Rapaire, in his most trying hour
Fail to notice a chrysalis is hardly a flower?
Was it heat-stroke, exhaustion? Was the weather too muggy?
Or the stress of jetlag that has made him act buggy?
No matter, forget it, it's not such a failing
The Master Creator is too gross for detailing.
He can't be expected to remember it all
When he's working on cosmic plans, way past us all!
If his thin disguise fails as a keeper of data
A researcher of tomes, whose day job is a waiter,
We still must forgive him, as trees forgive forests
Seeing all the miraculous things he's done for us!

Talk about your half (or slanted) rhymes!

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.


"Temperate" and "date"? C'mon, Bill!

And Emily! For shame:

"Hope" is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –


Billy, you should know better:

What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?


And then there's Amos:

He can't be expected to remember it all
When he's working on cosmic plans, way past us all!
If his thin disguise fails as a keeper of data
A researcher of tomes, whose day job is a waiter,
We still must forgive him, as trees forgive forests
Seeing all the miraculous things he's done for us!


At least he's in good company.

In the interests of fairness, I should also point out that some of Amos' lines possess weak to nonexistent scansion. However, his grammar is almost always marginally acceptable among the narrow spectrum of those less erudite and less refined than he.

Sometimes 'a little' is all you need to improve the scansion.
If you can rhyme data with waiter you can rhyme castle with ass hole without objection.

As for the God-like sense of humor in the cosmic ironic jokes created just for mankind to laugh, Rapier has mastered pin point precision with history and language, but the universes are larger than a pin point. He is a better pseudo intellectual than I will ever be.

...Could you please pass the Civet sauce for the kale and pork rind salad?
