(continued from HERE)

1200-plus posts in a thread
makes the Internet slow down to Dead . (if you don't have a high-speed connection)
...so I've made it continue
...in this shortened venue.
We now proceed Full Steam Ahead.

The last words were (wait a minute, I'll go find out...)

Edit: Got 'em:
NATURALISM - NAVAL

This ain't a naturalism.
A schism or even a prism,
Where meaning's unstable.
Knowledge is naval,
It's all just a paralogism.

STEAM -SLOW (words got from wofa's post above - no dictionary around)

A farmer from south of Nantucket
Kept his cream in a large wooden bucket
His milking was slow
But his cheeks all aglow
And the steam from his nostrils said “ferget about it!”

A gazebo set up on the Eiger
And be-striped black and tan like a tiger
Would go over the edge -
Pushed right off of the ledge
By a quark too minute for a Geiger.

GLANCE - GLOSS

Blighted love.

As I gave her a looong second glance
My thoughts turned, once more, to romance.
Will it make her cross
If I taste her lip-gloss?
I soon found I hadn’t a chance.

The hot gardening lass at the dance
Could tell with a cursory glance
That the man with the gloss
Of a hip mobster boss
Would soon try to get into her plants.

Yes, Peter - I've also found that I can't edit. Goodness nows what's up.
Anyway, i'm glad that you sent yours in - it's a cracker!

And the others now have a choice of four words to use - Anyone fancy using all four? laugh
