Fear and awe
Assail me
For here is that
I wished to see

Confronted thus
For now I flee
Quite daunting this
Reality

In time most brief
To return again
This quest is one
That has no end

Such weighed beliefs
On scale of fact
Oft' are measured
By what they lack


 Sometimes nonsense isn't .

I keep telling you Moose
That you should not be loose
The world outside the "Stute
Ain't for us right thinking fruits

Don't go out there no more
Don't go out that front door
It's safest inside here
Where we know what to fear

Looks like you have a full deck, Mr. Moose.
I read both parts and like what I read,

Ah... you are a crafty fellow there Dr. Moose. 52 words indeed!  But if you noticed my second response has but only 44 words.  That's because I don't play with crazy eights and there can be but one king of the 'Stute, so they are gone from my deck as well.  Hence 44!  Nobody shall ever accuse me of playing with a full deck... and if you check your cards you'll find your twos are missing.  Now go fish cause I haven't any jacks.

Andrew ,
A reply as crafty as my verse
But this just makes these matters worse
If my twos are missing , how can this be thus
At last count there were four of us

The route of four cannot be three
Oh no , this can never be
So if I have this figured right
They're not gone , just out of sight

Are you saying my good Moose
That your sleeves are rather loose
And it's your quick hand so slight
That your twos are out of sight?

Well, my cards are on the table
Each Sportin' the bicycle lable
And don't you never mind the colors
Each different from the others

Now draw! And I don't mean with ink.
I'm watching closely. No I won't blink.
I'm calling your hand. No way you'll win!
What! A Five-of-a-kind! All Justin.

Andrew,
I this place that we have met
Would you expect an even bet?
What's up my sleeve is but an arm
No cause there for such alarm !

Now in my heads another tale
With which soon I will regale
Of fact and fiction intertwined
For now I've just mis-placed my mind
