*space wasting note: I posted this because I like the poem, not because I think pappa William BS (Bill) Shatner is capable of such sagacity as the old man displays in this poem.

You Are Old, Father William
(a parody by Lewis Carroll)

"You are old, father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head
Do you think, at your age, it is right?

"In my youth," father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And you have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door
Pray what is the reason for that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment one shilling a box
Allow me to sell you a couple?"

"You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father. "Don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs.

I must commend you Little Hawk. I applaud you. I would reward you financially if I were in a position to do so. I congratulate and acknowledge and thank you. I bestow on you the title of Master.

Not for your fraudulent esteem centered on Shatner, but for being the one person out of ten thousand who knows how to spell "bated" in the expression "bated breath".

I personally think he's holding out for the 10,000th post. He knows how to keep his audience on tenterhooks...waiting with bated breath for his next appearance.

Buzz off, brother William
Go away from our door
Post not to the threads here
And plague us no more
Your style is offensive
Your hair piece is trite
Your acting's pathetic
And your singing's not right

You're a wanna-be loser
And a has-been of yore
We don't need you here
You ain't intersting no more!
So Shatner yourself off
To some other club,
You're not wanted here, Bill,
So just buzz off, bub!

come back to us William
come back to us now.
turn your eyes from heaven
rise again somehow.

If you bump into Jesus
maybe he can help you out
come back William Shatner to us now.

It trembles if you tickle it or tread upon its toes;
It is not an early riser, but it has a snubbish nose.
If you sneer at it, or scold it, it will scuttle off in shame,
But it purrs and purrs quite proudly if you call it by its name,

I once upon a time tried to use a pick with a guitar. One swing and when the pick hit the guitar the guitar busted into flinders and smithereens. I'll try a shovel the next time.

Copeland. Erin Copeland, Aaron Copeland's wayward granddaughter. THAT was who I was thinking of. She was the one who wrote about Billy the Kid being sweet in an Appalachian spring. She also wrote "Fanfare for the Decidely Uncommon Man" for me after one of our more...interesting...afternoons together. That was in my youth, of course, but now, in my dotage, my hair white with the experiences of a live fully and well led, with a few regrets but too few to mention, knowing full well that my life may have but a few precious hours left to run because I have to go to Boise for the next couple of days, I can pass on what I have learned, the wisdom I have gained by living a goooood life. And I shall, whether you will or no: first, don't try to fill an inside straight and second, never give a sucker...oops, sorry...be kind to everyone, and you will be amply rewarded in the next life and, if you work the scam right, in this one as well.

Ah, Erin Copeland! I can still see your freckles and red braids as we strolled hand in hand in hand that Spring. I can still taste the magic of that first, shy, innocent kiss that so awakened the woman that the girl suddenly became. I still remember you hands clawing at my shirt, still remember trying to explain the scratches on my back to Sister Mary Mary Mary when I returned from that delightful recess so very many years ago. Trying to explain the burning pain I experienced to the doctor. Trying to explain to my mother why I needed all those shots. Trying to find you and get my lunch money back. The Health Department interviews. Regrets, I've had a few, then again, too few to mention. Sigh.

With that said....

Part Three.
Discovering your body.

If you have or if you will, grow the fingernails on the left side of your body to an uneven amount of length.
When you have perfected an even, un-even amount of growth, use the strong right thumb nail to pluck on the nails of your left hand to produce a sound or song to the preference of your liking.
Be creative in producing a sound unlike any other.
Use your nails to be your guide into the new realm of making music that sooths the unrinquished beast within.
Hear your nail music.
Glide to the dance.
Be the growth of carbonite calcium.
Do the nails in a way you and only you can do the nails.
Discover the nail music within yourself and dance naked on your porch in front of a million stars and your neighbors.
Only you can define the music of discovering your fingernail jamboree.

End-Part Three.

Dunno about you ordinary folksingers, but if you're gonna be singing traditional Irish songs, especially rebellious ones, you need a thick white fisherman's sweater as a credential.

Ah! Tipped the scale! "Wind on the Bay Festival" (Irish wooden flute and American fife training, concerts, and sessions" and
"Irish Clan Aran Sweaters"--find your family's traditional pattern, 500+ clans registered (okay this is for the more gullible who think they need a sweater to be a folk-singer).
