Nobody's home













Randal's not home in this version.
No, he's not speaking in the third person;
you have reached his answering machine.
After scrubby dubby nice n' clean,
encephalitic noodlery ensued:
read his Frenchie presentation and booed,
the same for poesie script and chewed
on the fat that was self-inflicted destructive criticism, due soon.
So for today, no Prestidigitarianism --
what? 'tis my new religion. Come join, start tithing. Beep.

Graves, you swine!


Roses are picked,
Violets are plucked
I read your lousy poem
And now I am... losing my will to live.


Regards,

Tengrain

Kudos Tengrain ! I thought ensued & chewed & booed were good.

All in all I would have added a little more paparika, wild onions and a dash of tabasco iffen it was my poem.

sunshine said...

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, never misunderestimate the lethal power of crappy verse.

okjimm, Tabasco? No.
Mustard? Sure, don't be a retard.

susan, good, you'll need something to hold your innards once we've removed them.

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, send booze instead. If I'm nice n' sloshed, I won't know how crappy it'll be. ;-)

sunshine said...

Stop it. It won't be crappy.
Don't worry... :)

Cool. Your post reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode (the mid'80s Twilight Zone) where this guy calls his own phone number to check for messages, and a "parallel" version of himself answers the phone.

Cheney's colonoscopy is Louvre-ready! Is there room at the Bush library in Dallas???

David Barber said...

Randal, you lost me at "Randa's not home..." but good luck with whatever you are doing. ;-)

What does Prestidigitarianism mean?

MRMacrum said...

I'd throw my two cents at this, but then what would I have to rub together?

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, don't be going all Bobby McFerrin on me.

tom, I think having a doppelganger would be cool unless it was hellbent on destroying me, then it would be less cool.

christopher, dude, what's wrong with you, this isn't Saw IX!

david, I lost me last week, which is why I bought one of those Hollywood Maps of the Stars.

holte, what, tell you its ancient secrets without any monetary contributions?

BB, that'll work too.

JNRR, gives a whole new dimension to eating pussy. No Tabasco, though.

mrmacrum, your fingers, and what magic they contain!
