Sorry for the thread stagnation

Took fam on epic fail vacation

Started off all amped, fist pumps

Ended with all getting the thunder dumps

Wishing for time to hone my craft

Instead about died from broke drive shaft

Next time without any inclination

Will Instead opt for a nice "staycation"

 

 

Really like that one Dale. Time to get this thread cranking again!

Thanks Pat & Retro. (thumbs u

 

I took my family and hit the road

and even brought a mighty load

of cash that is, to see the sights

and glare of onrushing cars headlights.

 

But then my car began to wobble

I got out and began to squabble

wife said "this cars a latent clunker

we oughta take it in and junk her".

 

Then after this had happened a few more times

The wife checked her purse and said there's no more dimes

"Well" I said "The only good thing is the tires are fat

but now the problem is .. my wallets also flat".

I’ve been catching up on some classic yarns in my Readers; so here’s an instaverse encomium to editor Donald A Wollheim

 

O dragon-rider, show us the way;

Take us to fantasy worlds today.

No far realm could be as crass and worn

As this poor sad place where we were born,

Where life is a long looping sales pitch:

The broken wheel steers into a ditch.

 

Take us to where the stars shine as bright

Precious jewels flung into the night;

Enchant our souls with a wonder quest,

Wild adventure and evils to best;

Wrapped in rainbows of romance and glory,

Show us the magic myth of our story.

Excellent! (thumbs u

 

Where hero's are flung into mad adventure

without a care and no need for lecture,

rushing out into the wildest regions

without the benefit of strong armed legions,

soon to conquer or die in vain

at least they will not rot under channeled chain.

Very nice Pat and I forgot to tell you that earlier. I appreciate all the veterans keeping this thread chugging along and hope to see some new blood share some work soon.

a little instaverse for Ray's B-day

 

‘It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.’

Hold your tongue. Into the fire it goes.

Fahrenheit 451.

 

We always knew that thoughts were crimes;

The skull makes a hell of an oven.

Into the fire it goes.

 

We will burn all the evil rhymes;

They crackle even louder than prose.

Fahrenheit 451.

 

Haters of darkness, we know your names;

By your shining you will be undone.

Into the sky the black smoke rose.

Fahrenheit 451.

Excellent insta-verse Pat. :applause:

 

 

 

 

Up in smoke those books are toast

they might have held you quite engrossed.

But now we'll never know for sure

as only those memorized may still endure.

Excellent guys

 

Those establishment goons sure made life a drag

For Clarisse and our hero, Guy Montag

For life was harsh one needed just a look

Except a select few who could escape with a book

Todays people should especially take heed

Pop on the Kardashians and do not read

Voluntarily without knowing giving up their rights

And fall into that nightmare world without a fight

Go out today and visit a library

Take a note from the great Bradbury

AMAZFEB58_zpslg00tywb.jpg

 

Unknown to man an alien race drew near

Fiery militaristic men, and they had no peer

Through the endless cosmic dust they sped

spreading fear and utter dread

 

solely intent on adding to their glory

they had yet to meet an unconquerable quarry

They'd fought and persevered in Altair

with light losses and they had reserves to spare

 

With long months gone on this endless flight

the men were itching for an epic fight

then the forward observer said

"There's a green planet, and that's where we'll head"

 

The admiral barked "Break out our latest weapon"

"we'll go in and give em a taste of armageddon"

The new saucer launched and soon approached Earth

with laser cannons loaded, ready to prove their worth

 

But before the ships cannon could get off a shot

the saucer was struck and all was for naught

Pilot to commander "this saucer is riddled with holes"

"and not only that but they have ruined the controls"

 

The admiral interrupted and loudly spat out

"Men this is nonsense, no need to fear a rout"

"That ship's a prototype, one fortieth full scale"

"Unleash the real squadrons, and we'll see who will prevail"

Those Ziff-Davis digests are hard to resist,

And you’ve given this cover quite a twist.

Though the smaller saucer has taken a dive,

I’m putting my money on Galaxy 5.

 

 

Fun one! Good job. Pat

 

Thanks Pat,

 

That Galaxy 5 invasion will not quit

until their science officer researched surface samples for a bit

"It seems that we now recoginze this world

as our long lost planet from whence we were hurled" :blush:
