Nice work jenny jenny.... squatters have a way of ruining a neighbourhood.

And I liked your Xmas theme Rhuby smile
and far be it for me to be the forum police...but did you miss out using one of jj's required words???
(I think the others enjoyed you words so much..they didnt notice)

Peter....I hope he was testing the blades, shaving and not like 'Sweeney Todd'!

Rhuby, your sad tale of the Faerie Queen is epic. Beautifully told...it moved me to tears too.

So true!

A gorilla shipped out for the Bering,
But not, it would seem, for the herring.
So deft was his grabbing
They hired him for crabbing,
And the yarns that he spun of seafaring.

The Faerie Queen appears on stage
With wand and sequins and a page!
Her elbows creak, her knees both ache
Hair and bosom, both are fake.
People leave when curtain falls;
Just empty wrappers in the stalls.
With make up off and dressed in beige,
Exeunt: A Woman of - a Certain Age.

Dearest Rhuby,
Thank you for this poem.
W.B.Yeats (who is immortal) wishes he had wrote it.

You are quite right, Candy - I have repaired the ommission, if you care to look back. I'm afraid I got carried away by my own verbosity, and all y'all were too polite to k'rrect a doddering old man! blush

LIBERAL - LYCH

All Liberals become Conservatives before they die
As pallid worms change into bright butterflies
Some will wait too late
They lie now at lych gate
Frozen as Liberals [moan] until the Universe dies. smile
