I have ben trying to recall the name of the ball used in dance halls that is covered with mirrors which reflect light in little spots on the dancers.

Lifts me up - Then leaves me to fall

As the great unloved go dancing all the way

Am I the only one too dense to understand why this inquiry is posted on a thread entitled "Words from medicine"?

I was going to appeal to surrealism - what's in a title, sort of thing, but then decided not to.

My suspicion (more seriously now) is that newcomers do not always find it easy to interpret the structure of AWADtalk (some, of course, taking to it like fish to bicycles), and may post their queries on whatever forum 'comes to hand'. If they stay, with time, their posts become more accurately targetted. But this is not a theory I would fall on my sword for. (Or go to the mattresses for?)

Shame on you, Shanks, for further counfonding the tangle of threads on this board, by subtly cross-referencing our discussion under "ditches" into this unrelated thread.

[bristle]Kindly do not denouce my sweet shanks, if you please.[/bristle] ("Nod" to Anna of thanks for this idea!)

The idea of crossing threads is entrenched on this board.

And yes, lorenzo did not know his way around, and it looks like he may have disappeared. Counfond it.

Let us pause and give God thanks
for his loyal servant shanks
I am sorry for my saiding
he was bad for his cross-threading.

God made threads to be as tangled
As this meter to be mangled.
Sad I made Lorenzo go;
I won't do it any mo'.

Father Steve, I loved your poem!
Howsomever, I fear you may have given offense with this one.

I now rue this trend I started,
Mourn lorenzo, dear departed;
Not all folks are loyal servants--
Non-believers can be fervents.
