hmmmppphhh - this just goes to prove - Never trust a woman to meekly obey the commands of a man.  It wasn't like this in the olden times, when men were men, and women young damsels placed high on a pedestal.  And poor lil Bob deVine... breaks my heart, it does.  Hey!  Bob, have you gotten your raise yet?  You know, the raise you get for doing the same amount of work as you did before, but now doing it as a man?

And all the rest of you ladies - shame shame - coming into this topic when you were forbidden.  tsk tsk

Lorelei, honey, sweetie, sugar-puss - I knew all along the ladies don't want a man like the one I described (that's it Long John, grovel a lot, throw away your pride, save yourself).

This thread has been a ton of fun, my friends.  You've all risen to the challenge of putting me in my place (or, in some cases, putting me SOMEPLACE - lol).

Janet Marie - such a naughty girl you are.  Have you conversing with my sweet innocent Lorelei?  I wouldn't want her to become a vamp, too!  I have her all trained now.  She is so sweet and submissive.  Don't go giving her any ideas.

I've learned to tinkle
standing up
behind the tree
or yonder cup
seems a fine thing
to me
to be a man
and be free

More pay I get
for the same work
I am a nice guy
not another jerk
No longer will
I hate being me
no longer do I have
that certain 'envy'!

Signed (in full manliness!)
Bob deVine

tis a dark day my pirate friend
when the ladies you do offend
for run away they often go
to the bed thats not your own

the truth of the pirate pity to say
is to be lonely all the days
for the stealth on which you rely
is sadly lacking when your Tanked on    Brandywine

You're welcome, Lorelei and I'm game, Janet Marie,

but this thing is getting complicated,
a true tally we've yet to see!

It depends upon the reader, the style which they admire,

it depends upon the woman, which poet lights her fire,

they are all charming, I think we all agree,
but the Romeo of Passions just for me,
is

Love this post Lng Jhn. Yes Balladeer and Parker are great to read and even you m'dear but the one that makes this girl's Passions rise is the one and only, incomparable Sven. "HE" can do it all!!! He is the King of Romance (and a few other things as well). Not to say that you aren't loved along with the rest but Sven is the guy that I love to read best. (Yeah I know I wasn't supposed to read it but I never was good at following orders...love ya anyway.)

Hey, Sven, you write some pretty words,
Romantic things and stuff
But women need more substance
Than a little bit of fluff.

Your words are pretty icing
But true women want the cake.
You give them lots of sizzle
But the gals here want the steak!

Let's see some true life from that pen
For women to relate.
You're challenging a deer and pirate.
We're right here....don't be late.  


Lorelie.....Go, girl!!! Lay down the law to that pirate! YOU'RE the one with the treasure chest!!

Hmmph! I can't believe I let this one slide so long! Long John you are a bad bad bad ol pirate! I felt it was my DUTY to read this and to protect all the women of Passions. You are a naughty naughty man, along with all you other men who got in on the farce! Now either play nice or you're gonna have to pick yer toys up and go home!

Things are heating up...the poets are in duel
each one calling the other names and playing the poetic fool
Balladeer has just slapped Sven with the challenge glove
but I heard Svens not into fighting, hes into making poetic love.
SeaOkC is over in adult heating up the forum with his poetic spice
I MIGHT go read some of it later--once or twice    
Parker is composing one of his romantic filled poems for us women
but if Long John gets his way-- off the plank he will have Parker swimming
Long Johns over there in the corner kissing up to his sweet wife...
he better get on his knees and beg for his pirates life.
He knows which side of the bread he needs to butter...
one cross look from Lorelei and I think I heard him stutter.
When she gets done putting him in his proper place,
she's going out with me and Corrine and comeback with a smile on her face
And Excuse me Long John but did you just call me a VAMP???
is that a pirate's term for a lady who's a tramp???
Well, I've been called worse sir..so I guess I'll let it slide
it takes more than a drunken pirate to bruise my pride
But ya know they say paybacks are hell...
I've got a little pirate's secret to tell...
I was talking with your parrot-- first mate Polly
and he told me some really interesting things-- by golly
he told me tales of drunken brawls while out at sea
and he told me how you sailors call each other honey and sweet-pea    
I bribed him by letting him eat crackers in bed    
and you don't wanna know all the things that stool-pigeon said    
But I ve gotten this verse way off the reason why were here
Its about whose gonna be the romantic poet of the passions pier
So how do we decide a winner..do we judge by their sweet rhymes
Well I think they are ALL winners...stealing our hearts is their only crimes.
I dont think we should have to pick or choose...
when they write us poems..our hearts are all we have to lose.

PEACE POETS make love poems not pirate verse.  
LOL later poetic-gators

I love the fun this forum has. Got to say, Balladeer has a way of cutting you other guys right out of the picture......through his own words!(chuckle); Now, I don't know if I'd let him get away with that, if ya know what I mean guys.

Really enjoyed sneaking in here.  
ps: You guys- no chance with the lady poets,
(outwitting them, out romancing them) gosh, they have nerves of steel and will take any dare thrown at them.
Seven, honey, you go hide somewhere, don't want your sweetess getting lost among the wolves.

Enjoyed it all.  marcy

Sven picked up the gauntlet thrown by Balladeer
From the saddle of his horse of white
Pledged the battle to his one so dear
And joined in the poetic fight

His sword held high above his head
He called out the name of his love
Across the field his horse did tread
Like a white flame sent from above

With a stroke here and a stroke there
He met the challenge strong and brave
Rescued from the castle the lady fair
And thus her heart did he save

A room where women are not allowed,
I can see why that is now
Oh, I don't envy the man, oh dear
that goes up agaisnt the balladeer

Don't worry that I sneaked in
I won't swish my skirt
or bat my eyelashes
or wear a blouse too low

I won't gasp, not a bit
with the battle of words
in mid heat you know

Let my heart go pitter patter
as I watch in awe, all that matters
A poet's duel - a poet's duel
You swarthy seaman and shinin' knights
such valor such sweet poetic death

I will forever be in your debt
But, Aye, I must confess it is
Bob Devine that has me a shiver
It's his words that might deliver

For Bob won't be distracted
by all this ankle action
as he writes with a pen of passion
he will bring the end to satisfaction

Then there is Sven with his dimplish grin
with words that can make a woman ache
Oh, there must be bets to place
what is the ante what is the stake!?

Though JM seems a lot of delight
and she is ready to pick up the fight
be careful you swarthy gentlemen
when southern ladies take their
white gloves off -- it is enough
to scare the mightiest's pants off

and long john sure to put up
a heck of a contest with
siren Lorelei at his side
who will win the poetic prize?

Oh this is enough as I await
with a sashay and  bated breath
to find out the poetic fate

I love seeing the gauntlets thrown as men join the melee
Swords raised high, charging forth, with their poetry.
Balladeer versus Parker verses that devil, Sven.
(They'll self destruct in no time, and I'll be the one who wins.)

Reading words from poetic damsels (who are obedient),
Adds to this mundane day of mine an important ingredient.
The wittiness of the women, the posturing of the men,
Enhance this vicarious life of mine when its set to pen.

Naturally, I never wish women admire the others less,
Just because I write so well (though I think ‘Deer is the best).
And just because I love Lorelei with every breath I take,
Doesn't make me love women less, only at arms length.

Parker, with his unusual style and Norse mythology lore,
Writes much better than I, so add a tally to his score.
And Sven, with his romantic bent, makes ladies' hearts beat fast,
While all I do is plink away with jest and some bombast.

So, if we count the tallies, and then compare the scores,
I think we'll find that this old pirate has been too long ashore.
But that won't keep my pen at bay, for its in the try I win
The joy of seeing my words bring forth the laughter of my friends.

Ah, so sweet, Long John, I feel guilty for being so hard on you now!


You are all treasures in your own right!

So a challenge Sven lays down
Gallant knights all gather round
Soon I'll mount my trusty steed
My sword shall sing, opponents bleed
No quarter taken and none given
From the field thou shalt be driven
I shall win the ladies fair
So step up Sirs, if thou dare
Consider the advantage mine
Not only can I turn a rhyme
To win a maidens heart divine
My words are MORE than just a line
For on MY finger there is no ring
Not bound by vows or anything
Be smart Sirs and leave the field
Without bloodshed canst thou yield
So all ye maidens come to me
Perhaps YOUR knight I soon shall be...
