Post by: 510bhan on February 19, 2014, 09:42:34 AM
Okay poemsters, letís see how you interpret Ďcontrolí as a theme for entries. Be as creative as you like, just donít make it too long . . . some readers arenít terribly patient, but hey, it might be a masterpiece and Iím not going to cramp your style.

Have fun.

Entries by PM to me before 6pm Thursday 27th March February 2014.

Thank you. :-*

You are such a dork at times  ;D . . . There is no rule which says the numbers have to be posted. I put them up to keep people informed as and when I can, after having copied and pasted the poem into a document with the correct formatting if it's required. So I forgot to announce #2 when it came in . . . maybe I went to the loo, maybe I received another message and got into a conversation -- who knows? ::)

Maybe I'm lying and there are none in at all! :o

Presumably there's three - or perhaps four - members who could leap to Sio's defence here, but that would mean blowing their cover, so I assume they won't.

Telling someone they're a bead short on their abacus has the makings of a fine insult, like being three chips short of a butty ;-)

Or a murder short of a Muriel?
It's ok shvon I'm not offended at your 'dork' snit. I'm working on a cunning plan to pay you back. All will be revealed. B  ::)

Btw, you only omitted 'two' cos you can't spell it.  ;D
