The click I pick
will be real quick
and then I'll stick
a check in the mail
as I prevail
to use the banner
in a manner
to give us all
a little flavor
of the things
that we can savor
by clicking quickly
as you say
just one banner
on each day

A click a day
may even pay
to keep us
from the
day so
glum
giving
RCarnell
the dough
to blow for
other things
that a craving
poet just has to
have to make us all
continue here to have
ourselves a great big ball
Guess that's the crux of the
banners song. Long live Passion's

Mistikman-
The 'dueling banjo'
effect works.
Bet I can say it
faster than you can !
LOL !


The finger's
quicker than
the tongue
I barely
started
then
was
done
Course
the proof
is in the
clicker
see if
you can
do it
quicker

Marge, I don't mean to bicker
But I can do it quicker
Cause my brain's a little slicker
Specially when I have my liquor
Though my tongue may get quite thicker
And my skin a little sicker
Still I'm quite the banner picker
Hit a seven on the Richter
I'll raise the warmth of your sweet ticker
When I show up in my knickers
And we'll settle in your wicker
Sipping Chevas as we dicker.

Balladeer-

Now I don't doubt
that you're a clicker
but when with you
I don't want quicker.
Slow and easy
that's my pleasure.
Can we try it
in slow measure?
We can always
leave the clicker
to those who want
to do it quicker.
I'll take slow,
though I may quiver,
whenever you
show up to
deliver !

So more I read so more I'm getting sicker
what is this a song about a clicker
Those lines are getting thicker
Feels like a postal stamp licker
I'd rather taste a liquor
So much for Banner 101 N'sink'er
I guess I just have to be faster eh quicker
and touch the banner with the clicker

Nice inspirational piece there Marge
Happy Valentine to you and all the rest of the Family



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

What ever happened to Ma Bell and let your fingers do the walking so you could do some talking. It took me seven tries to get into passions and you need me to click a banner..! well I'm sorry the first thing I'm going to do is read a poem before the darn thing crashes and then I'll check my little mouse that I'm supposed to clickety click, on banners. You know what's going to happen to us don't you..? The next thing to happen is those banners will soon be singing to us in streaming audio.

What a nightmare that would be.

Great fun poems, I would join in and compete, although ...

         I don't think my clicker,
           has a quicker ticker,
    this is because my tipeing finger's    
                 thicker  
         and as for drinking liquor,        
          it just makes me sicker,
      then all I like to do is bicker,  
                 bicker ,
                 bicker .

WhiteDove~
You should join
our 'Quicker Clicker Club'
It really is
the #1 picker.
~
Enola~
It's really quite
the 'quicker' thang !
Want to play
our little game?
~
Helmut~
Now there,
we don't want you sicker.
Lay off of
that deadly liquor.
Take a break,
be a thinker
do not be
a little 'stinker'.
~
Lucky~
Go ahead
click your mouse
on the banner
at the house.
All we need
is one each day
then we all
can stay to play.
~
AngelSwing~
Now that's the way
to start my day
Another Quicker Clicker
will help defray
the cost of having
so much fun.
Work now calls,
so gotta run.
~*Marge*~
