You heard her, Bones.  And give her another one to chase it.  Rose is a beautiful name, I think.  What sort of drink does that make?

Well, I don't know much about it, except that I like how it tastes. :D

It's a lovely, red Martini cocktail. Has a light, soft taste to it which is why I like it so much. I'm not too keen on the strong stuff. And you usually drink it in a romantic atmosphere, that's why it's red.

I looked it up.  It has gin, rosewater, liqueur, vanilla, fruit sugar, another kind of sugar, and fresh rose petals.  Now, that's a sweet drink.

Sounds good to me,
but don't flee
and go for a pee
behind the tree,
'cos I don't like to be lonely.

;D ;D

i shall not find a tree
if you do not flee from me.
i won't pee much, you'll see
even a Fogarty sampler.

mine's good enough but yours's better.
as usual, in an argyl sweater.

nor will i hide in the wind
or go dipsy dumpster diving for some binned

cans of leftover tuna turning brown around the fringes
for lunch by a dowager, homeless and down on her whinges

stuck in the woods by a robin's hoods,
done slick in a mackinaw back
playing hacky-sack in your woods
with god's clock, tick tocking over the universe
what's worse, it wasn't first, there were other clocks surf
ing around the boot-heel pull-ups in the craven weeds
at the truckstop wide spot station brothel gas and house

of Madame Toussard's wax machine ...
for assignation peregrination and the nation's bean

but that's not here nor there just now
let's go across the mountain
let's let the ship have its prow
let's find a local fountain
and get soused

A shot of tequila, a slice of orange and the pepper pot please. ;D
Just a quick fix for my hangover from hell, red wine and gin last night.
   Cheers. :D

Take a goat Eric, add peppersoup, sip slowly with the freshest take of palmwine and you will all stop talking.
you could mix some potash with the ground tobacco and the ladies put it in tthe middle of the tongue.

Back for another evening. Although I have asked Bones to please keep me in check.  ;)

I don't write poetry, but I do enjoy reading it. It is very philosophical.

The Onion poem this morning. I have compared my life to being my choice of either the layers of an onion or the layers of a pearl. We all experience life and have "layers" of maturity that create who we are every day. We can be either an onion that makes people cry or a pearl that makes people smile.

Daryl,
you are one of those that made 2009 bearable. I would be honoured to listen to the music.
D, it is fantastic how you understood the onoin story. I thank you. care for some peppersoup? it our speciality and the palmwine is eco- friendly as there are no additives nor preservatives. It is more potent the next day so best have your fill now.

Greetings Biola,

I will accept your offer of peppersoup and palmwine!

The onion and the pearl metaphor have been trailing me for about 4 years now. I was excited when I read your poem. I may not know exactly how you feel or what your meant, but I do know that it had meaning for me.
