I bow with honor, and I take my leave.

POOF



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)

You have spoken well today.
Some tea leaves I add . . .

. . . to the accounting
kept by ThePowersThatTea.
(Yes, I'm keeping score.)

It is a falacy to split the world
between two cases every time we think.

I choose a royal versifier, sir.
The eloquence and power of the Queen
who ruled o'r Shakespeare's day (and named for her).

Elizabeth who wrote when just a child
Elizabethan sonnets with great style.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)

So if you chose between fates
you'd be a poet?
<smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle regarding the fate of the Mummy girl)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:50 PM 6 of 25

A lifetime as a living corpse is worse
than digitary torture then quick death.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:48 PM 7 of 25

That is an unpleasant fate.

Is princess better?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle regarding the Incan princess and verse)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:47 PM 8 of 25

There was a special class of poets then.

They praised the tribe's accomplishments in war.

But if they lost the war, the other side

Would chop the poets fingers off . . . and head.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:44 PM 9 of 25

Not because she's a princess.

Was she trained in verse?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:41 PM 10 of 25

Suppose an Incan princess did aspire
to cross that PORTAL there .. . Would you agree?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip smiling)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:39 PM 11 of 25

Your waves of thought swell in time
with the Buffyverse.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:37 PM 12 of 25

I think I see your point now. Is this right:

We don't come here to talk about THAT ep.

BUT RATHER make allusions to that text.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip about Buffy Episode of the Day)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:35 PM 13 of 25

The metaphors of Buffy
should be used in verse.



Mister Verschip says (BV to the Oracle . . . with some frustration)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:33 PM 14 of 25

Since there's a Buffy episode each day
for Tea Time "reference" . . . What does that mean?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding today's sonnets)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:30 PM 15 of 25

Ask forensicpopouri
what his intent was.



Mister Vership says (SQ to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:29 PM 16 of 25

Perhaps about the sonnets for today . . .

you will allow a few remarks on point.

I noticed that you took your normal clay

and with a sermon your verse did annoint. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:26 PM 17 of 25

Sundays are for mystery
not for clarity.



Mister Vership says . . . (RC to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:24 PM 18 of 25

Such subtlety may break by bloody mind.
A bit more clarity. Oh sir, be kind.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:22 PM 19 of 25

When the mummy awakens
the French may cry out.



Mister Vership says (RC to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:21 PM 20 of 25

It is your room, your mood I'll try to serve.
Whatever I'd say straight, I'll try to curve.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:19 PM 21 of 25

On Sundays I feel oblique.
Some subtlety, please.



Mister Verschip says (BV to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:18 PM 22 of 25

The waves are nice enough . . . but it's the WALL
that shimmers there that I have come to see.



The Oracle says (HS. . . as usual ignorning Vership's first remarks which are never in verse)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 21, 2002, 7:13 PM 23 of 25

The Pacific Ocean waves
crash in my silence.



Mister Verschip wanders in off the Terrace . . . and as usual mumbles something to himself
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 21, 2002, 7:11 PM 24 of 25

Sunday afternoon on the beach. No beer on the Terrace? Clock's ticking.
