CAPS LOCK WEDNESDAY ??????????????? EDITION
« on: August 30, 2017, 01:24:26 PM »
THIS MAY BE THE SHORTEST CAPS LOCK WEDNESDAY THREAD IN HISTORY, SINCE I AM NOT ANYWHERE NEAR IN DAN C. RINNERT'S LEAGUE AT STARTING THESE THINGS.
ANYWAY, HERE GOES. I'M TENTATIVELY CALLING THIS ONE THE "JUMBLE EDITION".
 HOW TO PARTICIPATE - TAKE A POEM AND ADD SOME SONG LYRICS TO IT - JUMBLE IT ALL TOGETHER.
(ALTERNATE TITLE OF THREAD COULD BE "BAD POETRY EDITION".)
ANYWAY, I'LL GO OUT ON A LIMB AND START:

ROSES ARE RED
VIOLETS ARE BLUE
O DANNY BOY
WE MISS YOU

TO ALL THE REST OF THE CAPS LOCK WEDNESDAY REGULARS - FEEL FREE TO IGNORE THIS, START A DIFFERENT THREAD, OR TAKE IT IN ANOTHER DIRECTION. I'D BE THE FIRST TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT NO ONE CAN TRULY REPLACE OUR (MISSING) FEARLESS LEADER.

WHERE THE HECK IS DAN?  >:(

THERE WAS A YOUNG LADY OF NIGER
WHO SMILED AS SHE RODE ON A TIGER
I GOT THE EYE OF THE TIGER, A FIGHTER
DANCING THROUGH THE FIRE
WITH THE LADY INSIDE
AND THE SMILE ON THE FACE OF THE TIGER

IF YOU CAN DREAM - AND NOT MAKE DREAMS YOUR MASTER;
IF YOU CAN THINK - AND NOT MAKE THOUGHTS YOUR AIM;
IF YOU CAN MEET WITH TRIUMPH AND DISASTER
AND TREAT THOSE TWO IMPOSTORS JUST THE SAME;
IF YOU CAN BEAR TO HEAR THE TRUTH YOU'VE SPOKEN
WOAH, YOU'RE HALF WAY THERE
WOAH, LIVIN' ON A PRAYER
TAKE MY HAND, WE'LL MAKE IT I SWEAR
WOAH, LIVIN' ON A PRAYER

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS DAN C RINNERT, KBOARDERS NEED TO KNOW!!!!1!


BECAUSE I COULD NOT STOP FOR DEATH HE KINDLY STOPPED FOR ME AND MRS. JONES.
THE CARRIAGE HELD BUT JUST OURSELVES. WE BOTH KNOW THAT IT'S WRONG.
WE SLOWLY DROVE, HOLDING HANDS, MAKING PLANS OF IMMORTALITY WHILE THE
JUKE BOX PUT AWAY MY LABOR AND MY LEISURE TOO, EVERY DAY AT THE SAME CAFE.

WE PAUSED BEFORE A HOUSE THAT SEEMED A SWELLING OF HER OWN OBLIGATIONS.
THE ROOF WAS SCARCELY VISIBLE. WE BOTH KNOW THAT IT'S WRONG, BUT THE
CORNICE, IN THE GROUND, IT'S MUCH TOO STRONG, IT'S MUCH TOO QUIVERING AND
CHILL, MUCH TOO STRONG TO LET THE HORSES' HEADS BUILD OUR ETERNITY.

ETA: DON'T KILL THE DOG!

DON'T KILL THE DOG (AND DON'T TURN IT INTO A VAMPIRE HAMSTER, EITHER!)

SO, WE'LL GO NO MORE A-ROVING,
SO LATE INTO THE NIGHT
THOUGH THE HEART BE STILL AS LOVING,
AND THE MOON BE STILL AS BRIGHT
SO, TAKE THE LAST TRAIN TO CLARKVILLE
AND I'LL MEET YOU AT THE STATION
YOU CAN BE THERE BY FOUR-THIRTY
'CAUSE I'VE MADE YOUR RESERVATION...

         (TAKE ONE PART LORD BYRON, STIR IN SOME BOYCE & HART, ADD SOME MONKEES, THEN SHAKE WELL.)

  WHETHER TEMPTER SENT, OR WHETHER TEMPEST TOSSED THEE HERE ASHORE,
THERE'S NO LIVING IN MY LIFE ANYMORE
THE SEAS HAVE GONE DRY AND THE RAIN STOPPED FALLING
PLEASE DON'T YOU CRY ANYMORE
  IS THERE - IS THERE BALM IN GILEAD? - TELL ME - TELL ME, I IMPLORE!'
CAN'T YOU SEE
LISTEN TO THE BREEZE, WHISPER TO ME PLEASE
DON'T SEND ME TO THE PATH OF NEVERMORE
  TILL THE DIRGES OF HIS HOPE THAT MELANCHOLY BURDEN BORE

EVEN THE VALLEYS BELOW
WHERE THE RAYS OF THE SUN WERE SO WARN AND TENDER
NOW HAVEN'T ANYTHING TO GROW
CAN'T YOU SEE
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO LEAVE ME
WHY DID YOU DECEIVE ME
  LET MY HEART BE STILL A MOMENT AND THIS MYSTERY EXPLORE; -
YOU SEND ME TO THE PATH OF NEVERMORE
  BY THAT HEAVEN THAT BENDS ABOVE US - BY THAT GOD WE BOTH ADORE -
WHEN YOU SAY YOU DIDN'T LOVE ME ANYMORE
  AND MY SOUL FROM OUT THAT SHADOW THAT LIES FLOATING ON THE FLOOR
NEVERMORE
  SHALL BE LIFTED - NEVERMORE!
NEVERMORE

ACCEPT MY BED, OR NARROW OR WIDE,
AND FLEE FROM FOLLY ON EVERY SIDE
WHEN STRIDE IS LONG, AND BREATH IS DEEP, AND KEEN THE MOUNTAIN AIR,
COME BACK TO ME! COME BACK TO ME, AND SAY MY LAND IS FAIR!

THE FERNS AND THE FONDLING GRASS SAID 'STAY,'
THE DEWBERRY DIPPED FOR TO WORK DELAY,
WHEN SUN AND THE SHOWER UPON THE EARTH WITH FRAGRANCE FILL THE AIR,
I'LL LINGER HERE, AND WILL NOT COME, BECAUSE MY LAND IS FAIR!

THE CHESTNUT, THE OAK, THE WALNUT, THE PINE,
OVERLEANING, WITH FLICKERING MEANING AND SIGN,
WHEN WOODLAND HALLS ARE GREEN AND COOL, AND WIND IS IN THE WEST,
COME BACK TO ME! COME BACK TO ME, AND SAY MY LAND IS BEST!

CRYSTALS CLEAR OR A-CLOUD WITH MIST,
RUBY, GARNET, AND AMETHYST
WHEN HONEY SPILLS, AND APPLE SWELLS, THOUGH WIND BE IN THE WEST,
I'LL LINGER HERE BENEATH THE SUN, BECAUSE MY LAND IS BEST!

THE DRY FIELDS BURN, AND THE MILLS ARE TO TURN,
AND A MYRIAD FLOWERS MORTALLY YEARN,
WHEN WIND IS IN THE DEADLY EAST, THEN IN THE BITTER RAIN
I'LL LOOK FOR THEE, AND CALL TO THEE; I'LL COME TO THEE AGAIN!

OUT OF THE HILLS OF HABERSHAM,
DOWN THE VALLEYS OF HALL,
TOGETHER WE WILL TAKE THE ROAD THAT LEADS INTO THE WEST,
AND FAR AWAY WILL FIND A LAND WHERE BOTH OUR HEARTS MAY REST.

IN CASE CURIOUS ON-GOOKERS WANTED TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SEEING IN THE PUBLIC ARENA WITH 'CAPS LOCKS WEDNESDAY' WE WRITE CODED MESSAGES TO ONE ANOTHER ABOUT BEST TACTICS TO DOMINATE THE 'ZON AND ALL OTHER OUTLETS.

IF YOU CANNOT DETERMINE THE CODE FOR CHEESE AND GENERATING VAST AMOUNTS OF $$$ ITS ONLY BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T INSERT

WILD POETIC HEART OF MAN
HE ENTERS LIGHTLY
DAMN
HAD THE NIGHT SEEMED SO LONG
A TEMPTRESS ENTERS
WITH SHEER THONG
A BOY SEES THROUGH WILD DREADS
A SNAKING SNARKING CAPS WEDS OF STRANGE THREADS

WE PRESUME IF YOU CAN DECODE THE ABOVE 'POETRY' THAT
YOU HAVE JUST FIGURED OUT SOME OF THE MOST POTENT MARKETING, WRITING, PUBLISHING, AND _WINNING_ TECHNIQUES THAT ALL THE VERY BEST WRITERS ($100K PER MONTHERS) IN THIS FORUM KNOW. NOW THE VAMPIRE FROG NAMED BURPS MCTAGLEY HASN'T CHIMED IN, SO POSSIBLY THIS ISN'T A COMPLETE LIST, BUT ONCE DECODED YOU'LL BE ON YOUR WAY TO EARNING VAST SUMS WHILE YOU SLEEP AND DREAM OF FONDUE.  :-\

PAINt THE VAGABOND PURPLE AND STEEPLE THE PEOPLE TOGETHER UNDER THE BANNER, IT COULDN'T COME ALONG ANY BETTER, A FIGHT BETWEEN MAN AND NATURE MEANS A LOSING PARTY FOR BARBIE.
