As night approaches a mysterious muse encroaches on the minds of writers
seeking solace to drink their sorrows still

Just a sip of self-pity is all it takes to fill their well
and dip the poisoned tip of their trembling quill in the ink of solitude

Soon, their words emerge from the deepest, darkest pit of their ‘literary hell’
Sojourns of nightly roaming’s in rhymes of; "thee," or "thou," or even "thine"

Endless nights of pomposity and bombasity such as, "ain't I grand," and, “check me out”
Legions of blind follower-fans that fill the stands in shoeless, three-piece splendor

“Metrical” is back in demand and without it, banishment to that black island is assured
So, revive the ego and bring back the killer quill and swiftly attack the rhythmic megalomaniac!

You can ask, but I won't tell you...

I think Pip has a 'Don't ask. Don't tell' policy so your secret is safe with me. But don't give yourself away with all the smiley
faces, some people might think you are a little light in the loafers, if you get my drift. ~L

So...you found out, eh?
Yes, it's true Miss Lori. You've discovered the very thing I fear most in this life...

What people think!
