SIgh. Pearls before bulls, obviously. Back to the drawing board, unfed and unnurtured, unappreciated, slaving in a freezing garrett for the love of Mom and the Merde Gratis Merdis that rules the BSosphere...

Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. The two most refreshing things to happen in USA politics in a long, long time.

Yes they do. Gotta catch up on the family news, you know. The new babies, the marriages, the deaths, the drunks, the recipes, who's in and who's out of jail at the moment....

We need a MOAB reunion. Haven't heard from some of those folks in a long time. Surely they know they don't REALLY need to read the whole thing to stop by and say "Hello!"

Come Little Hawk, Stilly, Old Bunnhab, Rapaire!
The smell of Noel is now stiff on the air!
Come Freds and comes spatulas, Khandu as well,
And lighten your hearts with the season's bright smell!
Li'l Hawk, leave your E-Bay, and Stilly your baking!
Forgot sour bowels and the toes which are achin'!
ANd hark unto Amos, the soul of verbosity!
FOrgive him his hubris, his wit and pomposity!
And then forgive Hawkster his fear of reality!
Forgive poor Bunnhabain his awesome mortality!
Bless Rebel's wild poems, forgive absent Khandu
The freds for their hunger for swallowing you!
And even Rapaire, if he'll only stop squirmin'
Soon shriven will be for his dastardly German!
His Latin forgiven, his Celtic and Frank!
And for now, he'll be welcomed as a regular Yank!
And soon all of MOAB will find itself reeling
In cinnamon odors and gobs of good feeling!
So quick, to the Season!! We'll make it all right!
Merry Christmas to all,
And BS,
And good night!

Clement C Rhools
A Visit from Saint MOAB

Enough of your condescending frippery, Meinherr. You will not find Babelfish glibidity as a requirement for participation on this thread; ordinary courtesy should do the rest, unless it is a sorely missing quality.

Is he native to this realm? No,
his wide nature grew out of both worlds.
They more adeptly bend the willow's branches
who have experience of the willow's roots.

When you go to bed, don't leave bread or milk
on the table: it attracts the dead--
But may Mom, this quiet conjurer, may She
beneath the mildness of the eyelid

mix their bright traces into every seen thing;
and may the magic of earthsmoke and rue
be as real for her as the clearest connection.

Nothing can mar for her the authentic image;
whether he wanders through houses or graves,
let her praise signet ring, gold necklace, BS, jar.

Babbles of a Mother's Breath
Boothbay Harbor, 1937

SHe weeps and bemoans your obstinate and curmudgeonly refusal to communicate. You see, the great difference between these titans and yourself, sir, is their merit moved those who wished to communicate their thoughts here to translate them into English; while your demerit moves you to take ordinary English sentiments--like "Up yours, Little Hawk!"-- and disguise them from all understanding, a most immoral impulse indeed. Fie, you semantic burier of noble thoughts and digger of grave-holes. Twice fie!

AYe, and a cunning one to boot. But here, where the flower of scintillating English releases the perfume of BS into the rich MOAB airs, is no place for you to practice dead languages, sirrah. To intentionally harangue someone in a language they cannot understand is not cunning; it is not informative; it is not entertaining; it is not compassionate; it is not communication; it is not helpful; it is not worthy of the Mother who watches over all of us.

I am sure there are other uses you can find for your many tongues -- or at least two.

No, sir, I will not. I have a reasonable command of Latin, and my own sister is a specialist in it. But the burden of communication, first and foremost, is on he who communicates, and for you to engage in this sort of wilful anti-communication on this most revered of threads is obstreperous, and verges on the anti-social.

Poor, poor Amos. A perfect example of merda taurorum animas conturbit. Even though his teachers used to say "Hic puer est stultissimus omnium" Mom continued to have faith in him, saying "Studium discendi voluntate quae cogi non potest constat" and reinforcing his tiny ego with statements like "Braccae illae virides cum subucula rosea et tunica Caledonia-quam elenganter concinnatur!" Even though his teachers and those who knew him "back in the day" felt strongly that exemplum de simia, quae, quando plus ascendit, plus apparent posteriora eius, we kept after him, plying him to better himself by posting placards of encouragement, such a "Si hoc signum legere potes, operis boni in rebus Latinis alacribus et fructuosis potiri potes!"

But we failed, and now he lives in San Diego where the motto seems to be "Da mihi sis bubulae frustrum assae, solana tuberosa in modo Gallico fricta, ac quassum lactatum coagulatum crassum."

Rapaire, who struggles manfully with erudition as it is not his native language, wishes to say, approximately, "In ancient times, newborns were put to death that way." and "Your back opening!" Unfortunately his Latin does not say these things. I had to read his mind to find out what he thought he was trying to say.

Winona's knocking at your door, the prize you sought is won!
The bed is near, the belle is here, you should be out rejoicing
And follow eyes the beauteous keel that looks so trim and daring!

But O snore! Snore! Snore!         
      O sleeping, droopy head!        
       For on the bed the L'il Hawk lies,        
          Sleeping like he's dead.

The Rising of Little Hawk



The morning dullards gathered there
At the coffee bar in the village square.
ANd what it was informed their talk
Was the getting up of Little Hawk.

The early crowd had left by eight,
To work, and no more time to wait;
The useless laggards came in then,
And sat around until half-ten.

And still their conversation stock,
Was the getting up of Little Hawk,
"How does he do it?", wondered one;
"I cannot sleep much past the sun.

The light annoys my sleeping brain,
And sets my daily rites in train."
Another swore he knew for certain
That Little Hawk used black-out curtains;

While one did swear he worked all night
Playing the E-Bay Auction site
And for advantages by morning
Worked while other folks were snoring.

But while the guesses were all fun,
Most of them wandered off by one.
The lunch crowd then, they wandered through
And dallied there 'til ten past two;

And still their buzz and earnest talk
Was all about yon Little Hawk.
And later, some asked while they supped,
"When is the bastard getting up??"

And while the idlers chatted long,
Little Hawk just slept on and on.
His head was full of colored dreams,
ANd metaphysic profit schemes,

Of dachsunds and erotica,
And Dylan on harmonica,
Of songs and history's mighty stories
Of guns and swords and battle's glories.

ANd while the people ate and talked,
He slept and slept around the clock.
When finally breakfast came around,
The word was out, and spread around.

He'd risen up!! He was alive!!
His lights came on at half-past five!!
Amd all discussed, with awe and shock,
The getting up of Little Hawk.
