#3 "melons labe" Erdy says
While wearing a goat on his head
The Capricorn masseuse
trying to get its bean goose
Would also drive a '69 Dalesbred.

#5 Jan Sobieski gives the finger from the grave
Because Merkal shit warbled as slave
"Go and arrest my peoples
and knock down the steeples
so we can pretend that Recep's not gay."

#6 As far as I'm concerned, the best possible was done years ago.

#7 A wanna-be Calife named Erdy,
Said to his camel, "Yer purdy!"
Let's go out by the tree,
It's shady and free,
And you, me and the goat can get flirty.

#8 Shit shit shit. Fantastic material lately, a clamoring public (!), and now this... as life events (ptui!) have more or less laid me low. Gut nuthin. FWIW, I've decided to actually work at this a bit as soon as I get some breathing room. That's not to say it'll get better -- I may well disappear up my own ass doing the ancestor's bio as a Pearl parody or something -- but at least it won't be forced, Frankenstein parts bucket junk like...

"My yatagan scimitar gimlet,
Bright green with a scriptural inset,
Has certainly hurt you,
O goat of great virtue..."
At which the goat asked, "Is it in yet?"

Maybe try over the weekend if I get some sleep.
