On a recent thread Doozer posted some poetry. Why I normally loath poetry I found this a bit inspired. I am now suggesting that Doozer should now be required to post a new poem at least once a week to remain on the forum.

What say yee!

I don't see how he or dr phil gets anything done posting so much, but that's their business not mine. Real doctors now are supposed to see 6 patients an hour maybe they post 6 times an hour?

You want poetry, I made up this one for my B&D, single cup coffee maker. Not the kind that uses those insanely expensive, one use, mini cups; the kind where you place a filter in it and spoon your ground coffee into the filter.

Water, filter, coffee, cup,
Close the lid and start it up,
Add your sweetener fore it steams,
For the coffee of your dreams.
And when the brewing tis complete,
Add your creamer or drink it neat.

I made that up after the second or third time that I made a cup of coffee without the cup. It doesn't work well without the water or coffee either. Simple instructions for simple minds. And I haven't treated the counter top to a cup of coffee since.

It involves a human writing/typing/speaking words, and words are offensive, so I demand that it be closed immediately.

jk.

I like it! Your talents are clearly wasted here :) Wouldn't it be neat if appliance manuals come in poetry form? They'd be so much more interesting that the ones they have now, might actually read them for once.

I remember having a go at being poetic in school, enforced I might add, when handing it in for marking I got it back with a comment that it was probably the first example of Vogon poetry on earth, the reference was to the hit hikers guide to the galaxy by mr Douglas Addams, how insulting, but true

Thank you much guys,
something about that thread struck me in the mood.
Evenings I often sit at this, my 21 century window on the world.
Prophets from the past could not even configure that which allows
us to put ourselves into the aether. One might observe we have
created an assembled consciousness of human capacities, much
akin to the operations of the Borg of Star Trek fame. My porthole
allows me to see what the cantankerous Brits are up to, which
way the Coriolis effect has things spinning down under, when the
sheep are sheered in the fatherland, and what old iron is being
passed around the beloved rust belt. It is also a masquerade
party, where everyone has a pen name. Some find it fashionable
to show up under cloak, and some find solace in the shield that
allows them to be the invincible matador that they could never be,
without the curtain of the mighty and powerful Oz. As to the
theatrics of the thespian character Doozer, mine is a name from
the creator of many marionettes. My namesake is a little green man
that adorns a crimson brodie helmet. He cooks raphanus sativus
in his cauldron to create crystalline tinker toys of which he constructs
marvelous structures, only to have his masterpieces eaten by more
dominant herbivores. Doozer's do, and so do I. It was contrived as
a moniker by my peers, and seemed so appropriate in it's application
that by some I am only known as Doozer, and introduced at social
events as such. Mine is a cloak not to allow cower in the twilight, but
one meant to pose interrogative synoptics to the passers by. The
pause to consider the uncommon conundrum almost always leads
to engagement, which is my social way to sort out those who share
common curiosities. For those who know me, the enigma has revealed
it's prime numbers. For others, I am pentagonal peg in the barn beam.
But my window on the world has so many colors, more than any of
you could dream of seeing. I must make progress every hour, every
day, and every year to uncover the mysteries of my universe. Every
interaction is just another stroke of the tumblers closer to the universal
key fitting the lock that has been closed since the beginning of time as
we conceive it. I do believe that itself is another clue. Time as we conceive
it is the mystery and the solution. Scientists have identified this as the
source of the hum. We don't exist. We just think we do. The universe just
provides us with too much evidence to make us believe that we do. But I
know better. As we come closer to finding the engine room, the light bulb
will be broken, to prevent the works being relieved. This is why some are
afraid of the light. They don't know why, but it keeps them away. Others
seek the light, but don't know what it is capable of doing. They just seek a
different way, a way away from mediocrity. But I know about the light and
why I should only come so close. We all give in one day, and make like the
moths we have seen do the same. I have a few things to do before then.
I think most of you all do too. Let's continue our quests and be kind to
out fellows along the way.

Doozer, you must go through a lot of keyboards. What brands have passed your severe-duty testing?

Probably an I-phone app (speech to text) ;)

This Luddite has a flip phone and refuses to text message.
(FWIW, text is a noun, not a verb.)

Dozer those two sentences:

<, I am pentagonal peg in the barn beam.

(FWIW, text is a noun, not a verb.)>

are sufficient to endear forever in my book. :-)

OK he's covered for this week and it was a lot like Vogon poetry. How about this for the next one, how a metaphorical Caterpillar (D8 possibly) hatches out of it chrysalis as a Monarch lathe.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
If you wear gloves on the lathe
Your remaining fingers will be too

You guys... Must be the weather. We need a B12 injection to the creativity node. If it's this bad now, what will winter bring?

I myself have always believed that barn pegs should be octagonal.
