@JJ:

On a language blog, surely we strive
To keep the value of language alive!
In a trio there's three,
And that's okay by me,
Plus, my Blind Boys CDs don't say, "Five!"

The pastor, whose background was Haitian,
Awoke every day with inflation.
Steady continuation
Of Platonic relation
Was causing him great consternation.

When an inner-pedant humanist (whom we will dub "Gus")
Said "the English language is beyond them" (Gus meant "us")
But give the devil his due do dew
Our English can be fun too to two
Who wants a serious language if it can't be hilarious

Willy's selfhood for years had stood proud,
You could say he stood out from the crowd.
He was more than elated
When that semaphore bated,
Though his new bride was crying aloud.

"Zis gazebo's ze scene of a crime.
And one can establish ze time.
Zis much we know,"
said Hercule Poirot,
From ze bloody, gelatinous slime."

Before Columbus went, a Chinesse gent went,
Without any map or compass accompanyment.
Why his ship -the American Express
Was true to course, he'd proudly confess
"I always orient away from the Orient"

ABSURD ACE

(Did you waffle, Alex, or am I drinking too much wine?)

Well, I had suggested "orient + express" as a continuation of the Hercule Poirot theme, but then I remembered that the original rules were that the two words were supposed to be the first and last words on an open page in a dictionary. Clearly, orient + express could not satisfy that condition.

Not that it matters really since this is all in fun.

Can't distinguish a king from an ace
Said the joker while hiding his face
It's all up to the thief
To provide some relief
I'm struck down by this quite absurd race.

Another year and I can't take the strain
of the season we call "hurricane"
Perhaps I will hover
In bed - under cover
And come out when the weather is sane.

I hired a furniture mover
Who sucked like a thousand-buck Hoover.
He trod ev'ry puddle;
He'd drag, drop, and muddle.
Now I'm off to buy good stain remover.
