Damn you Mike and Scott,
Who the Hell do you think you are?
You've left us without a thought,
And we loved you from afar.

Your poetry was a bit of good,
Your wit was a trace more than great.
I miss you both from the neighborhood,
I know God has opened his gate.

I defined myself by your broken lines,
You tried to meet my ripostes,
To compose, exquisite (it seems repines),
Yet, I know you both were toast.

Mike and Scott.  You are my brothers, and I love you.  Rest in peace.  God, I miss you and love you.

I've lurked in the archives, and have been thinking of you.

How thoughtful that you come today, in memory, and in glory to those who've gone before us. You laid the wreath down well, Sir. Don't be a stranger, y'hear?

You dear peg-legged scalawag... I can't thank you enough for this!

I know how deeply Toe felt Deer's death... and I know how much it hurts to be left behind. Thank you for giving them the scolding they so richly deserve. Love to you and the lovely Lorelei!

When I think of synergy, I think of what the three of you created - the fun, the laughter, the insults... and the strong foundation of love and respect you had for each other and your poetic wars.

Three wonderful poets, three delightful gentlemen - together they romped across these blue pages, wore Nan's erasers to mere nubs - and won the hearts of everyone. I miss Deer, I miss Toe - and I miss the most amazing camaraderie I've ever witnessed.

I'm grateful to LJA for finding this place, Toe for inviting me along - and Deer for being the missing piece of the puzzle. (And I can just imagine the claim he'd make of what my sweet Toe was missing. LOL) All three will be forever in my heart.

Adding this to my library.
