I'm sick and tired of this romantic stuff.
Where are the poems about pickup trucks?
Where are the verses about wrasslin' matches,
And drinking beer in keg-sized batches?

What about the poems about being rough,
And never getting quite enough?
Where are the lines about giggling lasses,
Who fall for lame and timeworn passes?

Why must we read about pomp and fluff,
And of one's undying, unrequited love?
Wouldn't it be nice to read of A-bomb blasts?
Or two trains meeting with a crash?

Or how about men who are big and tough,
Or poems about women who use snuff?
You know someone who's never used a bath?
What's that you say?  What of Toerag?

Well....

OK, I've been wrong plenty times before,
And I'm sure I'll be wrong, perhaps, once more.
It's just that I'm overwhelmed in here,
Reading all these 'sighs' for Balladeer.

I can hardly stand it when he gets encores,
For writing ballads, which, I'm sure
Inspire the actions of his poet peers
To sing his praises and not mine in here.

Did I say I was sick and tired of this romantic stuff?

Incidently, I love ya all, but I love Lorelei the most.  Erk... ‘Deer is getting to me, too!

ROTF...well indeed,

where are all the trucks and stuff?
Hidden beneath this poetic fluff?
Why it's here in the form of sailor man...
glad you drydocked, it's been grand!

Hey there, Flamey-lady - I know it's hard to tell, but can you believe I haven't written any poetry in weeks?  I just missed everybody so much that I had to sneak in here and write something... anything...  Thanks for your very sweet response.

Hard to tell of your poetic swell?
indeed you write with such sweet ease...
soon the ladies will flock about
and then you too shall be appeased...

I can write volumes on pickup trucks
drinking beer and shootin ducks

I can make rhymes of when I got waisted
and my gosh all the BarBQ I've tasted

but if the ladies I want to swoon
I write a love song, sans tune

*S*It is a relief sometimes

Death comes not when we cease to breathe, but when we cease to dream.

err, yanno, Nan - I was thinking of you all along when I wrote that line about the snuuf, but I didn't want to bring attention to your wicked ways.

How are you, sweetheart?  It has been so long since I've seen you.  We really MUST get together again.  I miss you tons.

I heard about them Balladeers, Toe Rags and them LngJhn's
People telled me how it was they had been gone so long
Now it seems they're popping up, cause now I seen all three
I'll confess to you, you're all a purty site to see
Cause LngJhn I be new here, and I agree with you
All this stuff bout love and such, oh no, it will not do
So I been pennin' ditties, usually with a beer or ten
So bring out that old pickup truck, and pick up your pen again

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?

Carolina girl!  I see you are back at the 'Beach" - Right where a beauty like you belongs, I add.  It is so sweet of you to post.  May I have a hug, too?

Get out the truck and let's go "crop-touring". Good stuff!!!

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

ROFL ... an injection of humour from you LngJhn is always what the doctor orders. Thank you for the grins ... you've been missed!  

I must confess, I’ve penned of love,
But not the kind you’re speaking of ...
The last post that I had of late,
Was of an aardvark and his fate!

True! Best wishes,
/Kit

Tracey - That was a terrific poetic response.  I especially detest (however) the way you lumped me in with those two rascals!  hmmmppphhh... I never... welll, almost never... have been so insulted.  If you only knew me better, you would realize what a wonderful, sweet man I am, and how you can trust me with even your deepest, most personal fantasies heh heh, Little does little Tracey know what I am thinking right now.  If she did, I'd get my faced slapped for my evil thoughts about mooching pints off her while she sang bawdy English Pub drinking tunes.  Needless to say, you must never, NEVER trust any of the other men in here, because they would just blab all your secrets and thereby embarrass you.  I, on the other hand, would carefully screen the poeople I blabbed....err... confided to.  If you need to share any of your fantasies, just email them to me at national_enquirer_secret_news_source@can'tkeepasecret.com.

Nightshade - Actually, I don't HAVE a truck, but I think I know where I can steal one - lol

Nan - Yanno, you've got me thinking about the Cape.  Lemme talk to sweet Lorelei

Car-Girl - Thanks for the hug - may I have more?  *innocent eyes*

hi ya, Kit - Thanks for your kind words of encoragement.  An aardvark, eh?  I can only imagine you with an aardvark, and that ain't good!  lol

Hey Long John maybe you can sleep in a pickup truck (you know like getting kicked unto the couch) but you can't sleep with it...James

Long John:

I don't believe a word you say
I know how much you love to play
and all this talk of pick up trucks
is just your way of pretending rough
when what's inside that heart you write
is just a (shhh) kitty cat of a guy

James - lol@sleep in a truck.  I haven't been enough of a bad boy for Lorelei to do that one yet.  Although, there have been times when she would have preferred that I sleep UNDER a truck - any truck.  I guess the women in here can relate to that.

Martie - Sweet Martie - What a nice thing to say!  I am kinda soft and sentimental, but you aren't supposed to let on that you know.  OK?  It will be just our little secret.  *Big exagerated wink*

LOL! Big smiles!   Ya know we like it a little rough too sometimes. Just don't tell anyone okay! Or I'll have to Monster Truck your existence into a three day old hangover, and drag you like a mud flap down Copper Head alley. Just a notion   Thanks for the great change of pace.

Sincerely,
Regina

Well howdy there LngJhn, I just seen your response to me. Mighty pleased to meet ya, but ya know, when y'all are talking to a lady, y'all're s'posed to look into her eyes dontcha know; not at her......well, you knows.
Now as for them other rascals, well I only ever heard of the three of y'all together. I been hearin' people talkin bout the three of ya'll all over these boards lately. And well, if you want to hear what they're saying it might cost you a few beers ( and none of that taking mine when I ain't looking ya hear). Now that we've been formally introduced of course, well, I can see why ya'll don't wanna associate with t'others. They ain't as high falutin as y'all are.

Thank you for the e-mail address where I can share my deepest fantasies in confidence. Y'all don't know how relieved I shall be to get them off my (rather substantial) chest.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?
