Pam, Len, Doug, John B, Richard, Greg, and Kevin (gwe editors and others) this is dedicated to you guys...I gain wisdom from you.
The Bards Who Blave
What words of wisdom will the wise bequeath?
For I'd hear them all if but one sage would speak
puns and plays and all betwixt the two I'd relish.
If 'tweren't for bards who blathe whom I caw and crave,
But a slave I am to them, I'd not long for tongue, mine or theirs,
From their tongue to my ears, I listen,
And Hence my own tongue quickens,
Sputtering words, conveying thoughts that aren't my own
Spitting quips and phrases stolen from the brittle pages
On which was writ the words I caw and crave,
A word on words of the bards who blathe!
Thank you for being so dedicated, determined, and attentive in the art of writing...
