I got to DC Justin Thyme
to hang and meet the rest.
I tried my hand at pool and rhyme,
but I was less than best.
I missed some parts, so drop the dime!
(Whatever could he mean?)
Des says that he'd be glad to share
some dirt about Doreen?!?

Haha, heehee... that sounds like fun!
(I'm glad you gave up smokes...)
But I could take this to the 'stute,
this dirt about these folks!
I'm Leonardo and I paint
fine pictures for the wall.
And if I could escape this 'stute,
I'd hang out with you all.

What I don't understand is this,
how could you guys be loose?
You're clearly just as nuts as me!
But *I'M* with Doctor Moose.
Nurse Cratchet, she is such a witch!
They use cardboard for meat!
I'm stuck here at the 'stute, my friends,
and YOU are on the street!

I never wore a groucho nose.
I'm certainly no spy!
There's only two of you who're sane,
LongJohn and Lorelei!
But I'm locked up and you are not,
it makes no sense to me...
that NUTS who storm the Capital
stay on the street and free!

Awesome! I really wish I could have met you all...

I'm really not sure what all of this signifies, but it is my hypothesis that you had some sort of meeting -- where does one sign up for next year?!?

What a novel concept -- strip away some of the anonymity of the forums -- brilliant!

(BTW: Love the Groucho masks ... LOL)

You know...I think I'm gonna tell Desperado anyways...*grins*

Great job with the poem, there Nan. And I still won't pump your gas if it's dark outside. *grins*

Even with a lot of imagination, does it make the story less true?

Rules for meeting poets.

1. Never pump gas after it goes dark.

2. Play scrabble incessantly and make up new words as often as possible.

3. Always buy good liquer.

4. Remember your sense of humor.

5. Write something if you get the chance.

6. Remember that they are as crazy as you are.

7. Never assume a poet to be sane.

8. ummm did I mention have liquer?

9. oh yeah, don't worry if something weird happens to the plane door on the day they try to leave.

10. buy extra food. they eat sometimes. that's if they can detatch themselves away from your computer long enough.

11. if they get lost, don't be shy. page them. chances are they are looking at books to buy.

12. make sure you know how to make coffee. they will need it in the morning to get over their hangover.

13. buy alcohol. specifically wine coolers, beer, and hard liquer.

14. remember how much fun drunk people are to watch.

15. play scrabble. in their drunkenness, they tend to make up funny words with funnier meanings.
