Long John: Balladeer, you are the greatest poet I know of
(hmmph, pretty words and ballads, and all that sissy stuff)

Balladeer: Long John, you are by far equally as great as me
(Too bad you smell similar to the Sargasso Sea)

Long John: Why thank you, Balladeer, you're a friend so fine
(I wonder if he's ever copied Elizabeth Santo's lines)

Parker: I idolize both of you, I wish I had your class
(Yeah!  Right!  Balladeer is a hacker.  Long John is like Toerag.)

Long John and Balladeer: Thank you Mr. Parker for your idolizing thoughts,
(We gotta write a poem about him that will get him shot)

Balladeer: Go ahead, Long John, write the poem tonight
(And please be quick about it, so I have time to do it right)

Long John: I'll get started on it right away, I want to finish soon
(Heh Heh Heh, poor Balladeer will be in my poem, too)

later...

Balladeer: I'm still waiting anxiously for your poem, friend
(As a Moderator, I'll dump Long John's poem once again).

Parker: You're really writing a poem just for me?  I can hardly wait
(I gotta become a Moderator before it is too late)

Long John and Balladeer: Oh, yes, Parker.  We're sure you'll be surprised
(When we get done with Parker, he will be despised)

much much later that night ...

Long John: Moderator, I've written a pretty poem about our Parker friend
(I hope ‘Deer doesn't read it, or he will write about me once again)

Moderator (Balladeer): I won't bother reading it.  I'm sure it's something we'll adore
(Yeah, sure.  I don't trust you Long John; I've seen your work before)

Long John: Dear Moderator, my lovely poem doesn't post.
(I hope ‘Deer doesn't read it, or my career in here is toast)

Moderator: Its just a glitch on the web, post your poem again
(Oh, Balladeer, you are a devil, he still thinks you are his friend)

Long John: There must be something you can do to post this poem tonight
(Who is the Forum Moderator?  Why can't he do this right?)

Moderator: I'm sure your PC is at fault, buy a new one quick
(I'll bet Long John does what I say.  He is a little thick.)

Long John: I could send it to Janet Marie and she can post it here
(And then I'll laugh with all the others at Parker and Balladeer).

Moderator: What a great idea, your genious knows no bound,
(Lower bound that is, and your sanity is unsound).

Long John: Thank you Moderator, you remind me of Balladeer
(Just as easy to hoodwink, I'm a genious when I'm here)

Long John email to Balladeer ...

Balladeer, I think I know the Moderator
He is a rascally scalawag
He changed my poem when it posted
I think the Moderator is Toerag

(Oh, Long John, you are a devil, the way you hid your tracks
Balladeer will blame Toerag for your character attacks)

Balladeer email response to Long John ...

Long John, I read your poem,
And I think you're right.
The villain will get his due,
When I rebut his poem tonight.

(Oh, Balladeer, you are a devil the way you hid your tracks
Long John will blame Toerag for your character attacks)

Parker: I'm speechless
(I'm speechless)

Denise - I wasn't too hard on Parker, was I?  I don't want to scare him off - he might get the ol' Toerag complex - lol - and then we'll have THAT to deal with, too!

LJA, methinks you've invited Parker right on in to the melee...can't wait to see more!

By the way, your newer style of writing is something to adore!

Thanks for the comments - I sure hope 'Deer and Parker get to read this before it slips into oblivion (page 2).

Parker: Well thank you Long John I'm looking forward to reading that poem...
(me thinks somebody’s been drinking too much Newfoundland Screech Rum)

Long John: Just honoring your 1000 post mark here that’s all.
(anybody that gets past 500 is ripe for the picking, arrrg… metey)

Parker: I just want to say I'm honored...
(an appropriate response is required here, that cat hair allergy is affecting his good sense, maybe that peg leg of his has got termites again)

Long John: Yes its what we do best here, right Balladeer.
(said with a big sly smile, while lovingly touching the old crocked knife behind their backs)

Parker: I’ll be sure say something nice about you and Balladeer in my next poem on Norse Mythology..
(yeah, Vikings scuttle the pirate and his metey’s for annual peg leg treasure hunt, and pirate roast)

LongJohn, I think you know by now that I'm your trusted friend
(I really SHOULD get an Oscar for the way I can pretend)
and, being so, there's something that I really have to say
(now  this is where my clever planning all comes into play)
Parker says that you're a sailor washed up on the shore
(at this stage let me shove the knife point in a wee bit more)
and if he wanted Lorelei she'd leave you in a sec!
(hehe. By now the sailor has become a nervous wreck!)

Hey, Parker, I've enjoyed your poetry since you have joined our group
(Manure can sure get heavy when you shovel it by the scoop)
And, in your own best interest, there is someone you should watch
(Now this is gonna smack him like a swift kick in the crotch!)
Seems LongJohn is a bit concerned that you act like Toerag
(Now this is quite ingenious but I really shouldn't brag)
When everyone can tell that you write nothing like old Toe
(For one thing, you can spell and for another, you've got flow)
But he says you're a mimicker with no style of your own
(Now here's the part where I, his new friend, throws a little bone)
But any time you need a good friend I'll be standing by.
(The die is cast. The seeds are sown. Now let's see some fur fly!)

So there you have it, my good friends. The stage is fully set.
I'm in the front row, smiling. Just how bloody can it get?
The bell has rung...a 15 rounder there in center ring.
They'll knock each other senseless and then I will still be KING!!!!!

Well Long John, I know your working hard on that poem you promised...
(Lorelei probably does all his writing for him anyway, she's probably over a Balladeer's)
But don't hurry I don't deserve one anyway.
(Yeah, I don't deserve a knife in the back)
Say hi to Lorelei for me, by your recent poems I see your much in love.
(He's probably in the dog house and just kissing up, is that why she's at Balladeer's)
I'd love to write a balladeer on Lorelei and You, Oh I meant ballad on you two.
(That slip of the tongue will probably get him thinking and Balladeer in trouble)

Hey Balla old boy, I've enjoyed your poetry writing too, very very much…
(Lay it on thick, real thick, and whats with the name… isn't Balla short for
Ballerina…. So whats that mean ballerina in a deer skin)
It's so cool that you have that Balladeer option button thingy…
(I wonder if Freud would think that his name means ballerina in a deerskin
Or he probably wears one of those little skirts while writing his poetry.
A feminine masculine complex, this guy needs serious help)
(And that button I'm sure it always takes me to his poetry)

Oh, and thanks for the tip on Long John about Toe, and my writing, I'll
Take it under consideration…
(I'm sure there in cahoots; Toe's not around so they're looking for another
Victim, boy are they in for a surprise… gotta finish this so I can email it
To Toe)
Thanks Bal. He probably just meant I have a style similar to someone he
Read in the past.
(He probably can't even read, I wonder if Lorelei reads this stuff to him,
She seems really smart and sexy too, hmmm yeah there can't be
Anything going on between her and balladeer, she's probably reading to him too)
And I'll be sure to call you if I need some advice, good buddy.
(Isn't that what trucker's say to other truckers they despise)

(Well I'll have to dig up some dirt on these two, maybe the girls got some good
Stuff, I'll have to get my sources to email me, maybe post a pic of Balladeer in
That toto I'm sure he wears, or Long John playing in one of those little kiddy
parks steering those pretend boats playing pirate…. Yeah need some dirt)

Thank you Mr. Parker for notifying me of this situation...

In my evaluation, I call this the toto complex. It usually stems from a young boy's inability to deal with the frustration of being told he can't be a ballerina. This of course causes complex chemical dysfunction in the young mind that will inevitably manifest itself in later life. This can appear in two ways, one slightly
Violent and obsessive or the other harmless, but as some would term odd and kinky.  
The first manifestation usually has the patient collecting Barbie dolls and pulling their plastic parts apart and hiding them in a closet or toy chest. The other and this seems to be this case… harmless, has the patient wearing these pinks and purple little Toto's. This usually calms down the patient and helps him to be creative, and should be encouraged. The deerskin, just helps balance his man image, and keeps him from completely becoming obsessive and frequenting off Broadway Ballerina auditions that he will always fail at, except in some way Off-Broadway alternative dance companies that would accept him in both his leathers and Toto's.  So I would say that this behavior is ok and to just ignore it since it helps his creative
Endeavors.

Also Mr. Parker, did you want me to evaluate this pirate complex I've noticed here, well since my hours
Up maybe next time.

WElllll, Balladeer is just a dear who hides in disguises,

ANNNNND Toerag is directly sexual in all of his guises,

Long John is just a sweety but he likes to stir the pot,

THEEEEENNNN there is Parker, whom the women love a lot!

All four musketeers can write pretty poetry,

it's just when the guys come around
it writes more like toiletry.

They ain't as tough as they would like us to think,

they're all SWEET guys, now ladies, don't you think?

Ahhh, another patient..... it seems this young lady Corinne with her consistant use of extending letters in various words, is just a simple simptom of over active phallus envy. The evil grin is sign of the good girl bad girl complex that exists in most women and is trying to get out here. There is likely a wooden box in her attic with some whips, chains and handcuffs and no doubt blind folds and matching leather enticement wear for special domin-atrix sessions. Either that or her keyboard is sticking.
Sometimes and extra keystroke is just an extra keystroke.
If you need to discuse this further young lady, I do do house calls for special sessions, er.. I mean occasions. Sorry I often have problems with my english.

Weeellll, Sigy, Sigy, wonder who you could be?

Your profile says you're from Iceland,
but that would surprise me!

I'd put you somewhere warmer, if I were the betting kind,

don't think that cigars sell well, where Ice rules body and mind,

but if you are looking to do some house calls in the country,

look me up, I'm in the book, between sugar and honey.
