Saw Forum Mom and Jade's quick exchange in the Shoutbox about Funky poetry and was struck by inspiration (don't worry, charges for battery are pending with the local constabulary.) Have always loved poetry, so hopefully it'll catch on with the rest of this awesomely creative little group.
For my first dive in, I present:
Ballad of Mediocre Jeff
Pray, listen friends this tale of woe, Though you’ll wish that you were deaf, when you hear what happened, apropos to Mediocre Jeff.
Our zenith of the Common man, Lord of all things in-between, has met the end of his life’s span outside of the mean!
Cruelest fate! Oh, such a mess; ‘twill leave you ill at ease! as specific to the weirdness, he was filled with angry bees!
So extravagant an end to so mundane of a life: this injustice hearts will rend, and fill us all with strife!
So, join with me this righteous fight to remember as we should the deputy who was just alright Before he perished in the wood
With ambivalence shall we moan, and with dispassion shall we pray, and upon his final resting stone: “Here lies Jeff, he was just okay.”

Just logged in and saw the reactions... Ack... the spotlight, it burns!
Seriously, though - thank you for the kind words on something that was just thrown together in the hour or so that I was tinkering around the shack. I'm sure I turned about 80 shades of red upon seeing that Austin tweeted it out.
Hopefully I'm not the only one here that waxes poetic on occasion (shiny, water-resistant poetics are the best kind for around Lorielei) - I'd love to see some others' funky verses, especially after having lurked long enough to see what this fandom is capable of! Maybe we can even bust out some bongos and berets for some readings
No idea - I didn't have a specific tune in mind so much as it just fell into the meter that it has. Shouldn't be too hard to sing acapella, though (well, for those who are so inclined)
It does fit to the theme of "Gilligan's Island" (not that I'm old enough to have seen that, though I know the tune) I was just trying to think of a more modern tune it might fit to. Alas, it seems past the point when Vinny might sing it now...
Dash Sean the Ragemonster: Just made it to Charlotte and our last leg has been delayed almost an hour so we should get into Portland by like 11:45, then to Kristin's place by like almost 1. Then we gotta be at the mechanic at 8AM to get her car and it's an hour drive.

Dash Sean the Ragemonster: This shit gets delayed one more time and I'm calling out of work tomorrow and see if I won't. (I probably won't)

Dash Sean the Ragemonster: Thank you. My trip was safe and had no crashes, though my new year was nothing close to happy.

Random: johnpaul's been recruited
Jan 10, 2018 12:32:30 GMT -6
Dash Sean the Ragemonster: johnpaul is a ninja now. He has completed his training. He still can't tell Jade and Kerstin's voices apart, but he can kill them from the shadows.

johnpaul: Hey, it's a fifty/fifty shot! I'm sure the guys hiring assassins are happy with those odds.
