Quite clever yarns I yearn to spin
Fun pithy verse - to make folks grin
Is it a gift - could I not learn
A witty phrase or two to turn?

Amusing tales I'd love to tell
Is there a chance - could I excel
At giving folks a laughing fit
Could what I write cause sides to split?

Although a clown I'd love to be
Me thinks it's but sheer fantasy;
I'd better stick with other stuff
-Romantic flights and weepy fluff...

And let the masters handle wit
-of which I'm not - I must admit
And humbly wait the next great gag
From wayoutwalt and fun toerag!!!

It made me smile in appreciation of the fact that I too feel for that bit of wit. Perhaps in time. I've got a series that I felt was quite funny, but it has gone the way of Forum #1.

Andrew, why don't you repost some of it? I've only been here for a couple of weeks and haven't read any of it! Thanks!

This brought a smile to my face, I often also wish I could write humorously once in a while, but it just does not work, so I have to give you credit for going a step further then I have dared to go, and a great job you have done with it.

Why thank you Lost Dreamer for the compliment! I guess it's only natural to wish for what we are not instead of being satisfied for what we are!! I guess I have to work on that a bit!! Thanks again!
