You're wasting your time, Verschip.

But do as you will.

Well, bloody hell, how come I learn this now?

The Episode from Buffy has a key.

I'll read more carefully the next time here.

You thought the sonnets pointless?

Not too smart, Verschip.

You mean the sodding Sonnet of the Day?

CONGRATULATIONS, Verschip.

A sonnet keyword.

The tribe of Hollywood requires a code.

If you do not conform to all their rules,

they'll quickly SHUN you, say "Jack, hit the road.

They see outsiders as a bunch of fools.



The Oracle says . . . HS

Another point well taken.

But I will decide.



Mister Verschip says . . . BV
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 15, 2002, 7:43 PM 10 of 26

Then maybe I will broaden my appeal.

You speak of soul in Hollywood. How strange.
But I'll embrace the concept if you like.

You seem to have the power I require.
My faultless logic will, I'm sure, persuade.



The Oracle smiles . . . HS

The Oracle speaks truth.

That's all I will say.

Well, what in bloody hell has that to do
with getting transport through that PORTAL there?



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 15, 2002, 7:37 PM 13 of 26

The powerless require charm.

This is Hollywood.

Well maybe now the shoe should be replaced
on someone else's foot who has more charm.

A point well taken. Fine. Then you can stay.

But I'm appointed to care-take the gate.

THE PORTAL here. The shimm'ring wall, right there
is under my control. I am the key.



Mister Verschip says . . . RC

I quote the Powers That Tea law on this point . . .

That ALL are welcome in this sodding joint.

I make no claim of "fairness."

I am what I am.



Mister Verschip says . . . RC
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 15, 2002, 7:26 PM 18 of 26

I'll match you rhyme for rhyme, so please take care
or people will not think that you are fair.

Although you speak in verse so I can hear,
you are not what you claim. So, disappear.

Well, I'm the best you've got, mate. Don't you see?
...
In any case, this bus'ness of a soul
continues to be one criteria
for passage through the PORTAL. But what else?



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 15, 2002, 7:19 PM 21 of 26

I hear a human soul claimed . . .

But truth is not there.



Mister Verschip says . . . BV
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 15, 2002, 7:17 PM 22 of 26

My friend, why do you slander me right off?

My soul enjoys the view. Hear what I said?



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 15, 2002, 7:15 PM 23 of 26

I hear that Mister Verschip.

He is not human.

Quite pretty here to today with all these views.

The ocean . . . and the ferris wheel's in sight.

The Terrace is open
