'Deer it seems your rhyme is fine
and lots of sympathy won
was that you plan? well fine elan
to bring that dastardly girl undone
the rhymes did not roam so call them home
dragging those women hearts behind them
Be well
BTW I really liked this, and Long John and Lorelei54 are due to return.

Oh Deer Oh Deer
almost shed a tear
but whats this  all ado
If you lost your rhyme
That is a crime
but you left us with a clue.
without a doubt
you joke about
I say shame on you.

Loved it. Mysteries are always fun.

You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
and show the world all the love in your heart
Then people are gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That your beautiful as you feel.~~~ Carol King

(Knock! Knock!)…(door opens)
Hello this is the Love Police!
Is this the resident of Balladeer?
We have a report that a rhyme is missing?
Would this be a love rhyme?
Well I checked your file prior to my arrival and
it says that you don't have any love insurance (No Piece of the Rock)
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum33/HTML/000057.html
You know we just can't let you run wild and free in that flowered shirt,
bell-bottom pants and clogs without insurance!! Now that's a crime!!
You probably have a BIG black book loaded with female poets that
are ready to rhyme with you at any given moment.
And I bet there's a bunch of Ballafawn's running around everywhere?
Because of your Passion in Poetry!!
You know I should write you up right now!!
But since I'm having a good day I think I'll tear this ticket up!!
And I'm gonna file this report as misplaced or lost. NO! NO! I think
from what I have read this should be placed in the Broken Hearts file.

                                   Broken Hearts Report

DATE…On the..05th.. day of the..11th..month in the year..2000 AD
                            
PERSON/PERSONS…Moderator Balladeer of the
                                      Passion in Poetry Forums


DISCRIPTION/ CLAIM…Moderator Balladeer claims that a love
                                            with no apparent name has got up and
                                            left in the middle of the night with his
                                            rhyme. He also claims he had it locked
                                            in his heart and he had the only key.


INSPECTORS NOTES…I must say that on investigating Balladeers
                                          heart it does look as if their was a break and
                                          entry taken place in the late hours of the
                                          evening of 11/05/2000 and that every time
                                          he is asked about his love it bleeds (his heart)
                                          and it is empty of rhyme. Upon a visual
                                          inspection of his heart I noticed the Balladeer
                                          singing a tune that goes…………………….
                                           "IF I ONLY HAD A HEART"…………….
                                           And he kept asking me if I seen the Wizard
                                           Well I told him to stay away from the Poppy
                                           fields and that he should stay at home because
                                           there's no place like home, then he clicked his
                                           heels and started to dance around some funny
                                           looking ribbed balloons he had in his wallet.


CONCLUSION…This case can only be filed under Broken Hearts because
                              the Balladeer did give access into his heart for his love and
                              that she may return with his rhyme and mend but for now
                              the Balladeer will wait for her and her love (sob!) and the
                              only way I think we can help is to sing along with him…
                              1 and a 2 and a 1 2 3 4….."IF I ONLY HAD A HEART"..

Michael--

this rocked! you are a genuis poet
did ya know that? well you are...


seems your rhymes are just fine
and they were with you all time
i think thisbe more of a broken heart
i'd like to shoot her with a dart (err did i say that lol)
in time your heart will heal, some things just take a little longer
i learned that from a wise and beautiful poet.

so glad this isn't true Bal...i'd miss you
and your rhymes an awful lot!!!

take care.

Well, Bal.... Id say she was protecting you from them. We know how dangerous your rhymes can get.
They should only be used by professionals...
Like Toerag or Long John, you could hurt yourself... look its already ripping your heart to shreds...
