Salute to Balladeer! (10,000 Posts)
By Larry Chadwick

Kicking kitties ain’t his bag,
Pirating is way too cad.
Pringling is more his style,
So I’ll just call him dad.

Here since June 5, 1999,
Showed up with a smile.
Debuted “One Trick Pony”,
Coming in with style.

Averaging 10.66 posts a day,
He has slowly learned to type.
But an original every other day,
Makes him more than just hype.

But how did the Big Roach,
Come to be the Balladeer?
It’s a question that is asked,
Just about every other year.

Slowly it has added up,
10,000 posts he has made.
Hope it doesn’t ever stop,
We’re sure glad you stayed!

Member Patricius – Sir!

I will stand and give a cheer
To the charming Balladeer
Who writes with style and with grace
And puts a smile upon our face

10,000 - wow that is a lot!
As back he comes to stir the pot
To take a dip in passions brew
And flirt a bit is what he'll do

But Oh! When he writes a part
He can play the strings of every heart
He makes the women sigh and try
He makes the menfolk die  and cry

So here's to you brave Balladeer
10,000 posts, let's make it clear
There is no other here like you
Except perhaps for one or two.

CONGRATULATIONS!

and Larry thanks for the heads up.

Larry shaking my head sadly - We've got 'Deer convinced he's a scalawag, and then you mess it all up with this poem!!!  Do you know how long my 'Deer hunting season campaign has been going on?  Well, now it's all been trashed by this one good poem.  hmmmppphhh

Incidently, you did some good research there.

Too heck with the toasting!
He needs a good old fashioned roasting!

Great poem full of history here Larry!
Very well done!

And....I guess I should add......
Congratulations Balladeer!

I too believe that he needs to be roasted.  He has had many serious writings, and some that were hilarious.  Great tribute to one great guy.

Hey, Larry! You been following me?? Thank you, good sir, for such a special piece. It is I who am very grateful for being here. Actually I had not written a poem for over eight years before coming to Passions and had no plans to write again. This site and the wonderful people here with their support and camraderie relit my poetic desire and for that I will always be grateful. My warmest thanks to everyone who has made my time here so enjoyable and I will forever be in their, and your, debt. Thank you again, Larry, and I'll write one for you on your 10,000th, too!

Yours was terrific, too, Keth!!!

Winding down to the end of this year
Reflecting on the inspiration brought to me by balladeer
His poetry has become sort of a fetish
And great poets like 'Deer need a poetess
His words fill my poetry hunger
It's a shame 'Deer isn't a little bit younger
I'd scoop him right up like ice cream
Regardless, RosePetal is always on your team

GOOD WRITE LARRY! CONGRATS TO YOU 'DEER!
You are a very talented and special man.
