That bally dearís a bally cuss
His bally poems cause bally fuss
While little word for bally us
Is bally dearer?

Our bally poems arenít bally bad
Less bally replies weíve bally had
Than one of his Iím bally sad
Is bally dearer?

All bally rhyme and bally brains
We bally catch the bally remains
You have this dear on youíre bally brains
Is bally dearer?

I bally read this bally dear
The bally poetry posted bally here
Iím not as good I bally fear
Yes ballyís dearer

My apologies go to two fine poets, one is Captain Hamish Blair whose poem ( The Bloody Orkneys ) I borrowed and perverted to construct this ramble. The second fine poet should be obvious !

I donít think it will be noticed that much ( hope Iím right )
Thanks Pepper and RainbowGirl for replying.


Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

I'd barely arrived from work to here
And barely had time for a barley beer
When, what to my bally eyes appear
Than a poem about a bally deer.

My mind, at times, can be quite muddy
But, does bally take the place of bloody?
Not sure - but, to treat the poet fairly
I'll assume it stands for barely.

So, since Toeray now can bally walk
And LongJohnAg can bally talk
I hope my meaning's bally clear
Your poem was very ballsy, dear.
-------------------------------------------

p.s. Your poem was excellent! The compliment was not wasted and I appreciate it. I'm not familiar with Captain Hamish Blair. The only Blair I've read is Eric, who we know better as George Orwell, but I will look for that poem. And I'm not too familiar with the Orkneys, except to know that the Islands, including Pomona, don't appear to be extremely hospitable but I'll check them out, too. Thank you, Writer51, for your thoughts, in whatever bally fashion you care to put them down.

I'm glad you liked it Deer, I'm just sorry it isn't a better tribute.
