Three Musketeers - A rogue, a flirt, a balladeer

There are three guys one day I met
While surfing on the Internet
And they were spatting back and forth
From west to east and south to north

The one from honorable seed has sprung
But hides it with a worldly tongue
And all the ladies see right through
The mask attached with super glue

The other speaks in earthly tones
While rattling his jealous bones
For he can hardly bear to see
The other one win victory

The third one is a balladeer
With pen as sharp as any shear
He slices words with bladed saw
And enters in the free-for-all

And there they were, three musketeers
A rogue, a flirt, a balladeer
Writing poems about each other
Each outdoing one another

Words of outrage, words of shame
Calling one another names
Shredding them to little pieces
A war of words that never ceases

But written in between the lines
Are friendships you cannot define
For fight they may with pen and ink
They’re really closer than you think

A camaraderie next to none
Is treasure that the three have won
And laughter is the end result
Of verses laced with pure insult

I swear that I had never met
More mayhem on the Internet
It was the stuff of little boys
With manly verbiage as their toys

Now who is best, is quite a riddle
I don't see any second fiddle
If I had to choose among the three
I'd take the trio just for me

Love you all
Liz

Well my choice is fairly well documented and would surprise no one! LOL. But this is wonderful, Elizabeth... a delightful poem about 3 terrific guys. Their exchanges are a joy to us all!

Elizabeth,
Ingenious was your trilogy
And turned it to an epoppe.
A wonder to my simple mind.
That binds the very nonaligned.
I am in awe of your prowess.
Love ya Sy

Dear Liz, I smile from ear to ear
To be one of your musketeers
To be immortalized in verse
With those two - well, it could be worse.

Toerag's no musketeer - In fact
With that schnozz he's DeBergerac!
Nor with LongJohn can I concur
He's like the Ancient Mariner!

I do my best to keep in line
These apoplectic friends of mine
But they're so out of control at times
I'm forced to use insulting rhymes.

It really makes me feel sad
To have to cut them down so bad
But let it be well understood
I do it for the boys' own good.

Thanks, Liz. You've made the story clear
Of me and those two mouseketeers
And, though I say it 'neath my breath,
I love those silly jerks to death!

Absolutely wonderfully entertaining.  You speak well of these boys and their reads.  They certainly reinforce what you have written.

Liz, you did good describing there words of war! So many people just took it to heart!  I so miss the laughter from them 3!  3 Musketeers is a good name for them.

Great one, Elizabeth..

Let's beckon them all, one, two, three
For Passions Forums need to see
A dose of their frivolity
It's time for joviality

Have a great weekend, you guys!!
No fair, Lorelei...

Lizzie, my friend~
Absolutely adorable.

As you can see
the 'musketeers'
are running free.
Indulging in poetic brawl
giving laughs
to us all.

You sure do them justice
in your poem.  Brought smiles !
