Ok, Miss Ness, I catch your drift,
But finding time has got me miffed.
If I had time to hang out here
Like you and handsome Balladeer
There'd be no time for cooking soup
Or play with Alicia's hoolahoop
Or supervising teenage boys
Who's days are filled with 'lectric toys
Like amps, guitars and techno noise.
And apart from that, when would I work?
Should I just quit and Forum Lurk
And write a verse or ten each day,
Forgetting 'bout the need of pay?
My dilemma isn't odd.
(Well, perhaps it is on old Cape Cod).
But, my friend, I promise this,
Each time I post a poem, dear Miss,
I vow that I'll respond to two
Since that's the proper thing to do!
One question, first, Miss AnswerNESS
How to get MORE responsiveness
From critics, poets, hanging here--
Like handsome, kind, dear Balladeer?
I guess this poet's pretty hot.
I have it right? Or do I not?
Sometimes he gets 13 responses!
To me, I guess that's just what hot is!
Oh well, thank God we have this forum
And soon we'll all learn right decorum.
For this, we thank our net-god Ron!
(Ummm, don't feel obligated to respond.)
