Write anything, about anything, in the style of Joyces' "Finnegans' Wake".

I KNOW that you've read it, or in my case, attempted it. lest you wouldn't have opened this thread.

I've tried it, I like it, I'll try it again.

The usage and concoction of words, the use of other languages, rhymes and puns are all good fun.

*WARNING*
Overuse of this style of writing is known to have caused headaches and confusion.

The "Corner Pub" seems a likely place to post it.

Thanks squirrel dude,
I figger if just one other poet on this board gives this challenge a whirl, it will have been successful, and it looks like a victim just stepped up.

Sven, I'm so happy that you're gonna write a posey for this. I'll write one too, of course. take your time. I watch for it.

brian ~ anytime between now, and 17 years from now. No need to hurry this thing. It can be like inventing language anew.

An impressive read, but I need to peel more of your layers. I'll be back to it from time to time for some sifting.

Thanks again
