Sir Balladeer has such an academic way
But our old Toerag he just throws those rules away
Yes, I've learned much in Deer's Poetics One-oh-one
And I've laughed many times at our Toe's rhymeless fun
So tell me which way should I put pen to paper
Do I follow good form or write a mad caper?
Tell me which way lies the greater poetic good
And how much wood can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Sir Andrew, sir, you are the man.
Just write them any way you can.
With all the talent that you've got
You'll always be, to me, Great Scott!

Andrew Scott-

You've learned from
the masters of the quip.
And, you've learned it well.

Very funny, indeed !
Whatever you write
I'll surely read.

When words can brighten someone's day
It matters not to me the way
They rhyme, their meter, or their form...
More the heart from which they're born!
Use your own talent, use it well
To say what no one else can tell.

Well, Good Morning Yall!

Sir Balladeer... Thank you for the greatness of your words. But YOU! are still the man!

Lady Marge... many thanks and right back at cha.

Justbleu... my thanks to you as well. Love the clown face and I think Bridgette is one of the more beautiful names.

WildChild... glad to have been of service.

Lady Suthern... always a pleasure to see you and thanks for stopping by.

Lady Hoot... So you see the invisible man do you... hmmmm... perhaps I should put my clothes back on.    Glad I could make you laugh.

To one and all, thanks for stopping by for a little bit of fun.  Now can anybody tell me about the woodchuck?

Sir Scott, this was a wonderful little ditty. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? A woodchuck would chuck a chuck of wood, if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Echo… here is your qupee-doll, now run along a play.

Nan… Why thank you my dear… that is one of the finest complements I've ever received.

Marilyn…. OK! But how much is a chuck?  And does a woodchuck know how much that is?

Dear Andrew do not curse your curse,
'Deer or Toe, it could be worse.
You could write without a clue,
Just the way we sailors do.

It matters not your pen's ink,
But only that you first think.
For if you write without a plan,
You'll be thought of as a Long John man.

Oh sure, you say, that's not bad,
But rest assured in what you have.
Talent and skill are rare assets,
I know.  I haven't found them yet.

So put pen to paper, mouse to screen,
Let your thoughts flow fresh and clean.
And as for our Toe and Balladeer,
Let them worry over your thoughts here.
