No dear Oracle
I had just hoped someone
Other than little me

Wrote insightful verse
about this dear episode.
I will try next time!

By the way dear V
Lawyers are not always men
I am a woman!

Excuse my manners man, but I must go.

Perhaps there'll be more drama next time, though.

POOF

I'm the Oracle.

There's nothing wrong with kissing lawyers, man.

But men don't fit my kissing profile well.

The Prophecy girl
The episode of the day
I wish we had talked about

Tea Time is over
And inspiration left me
Too much beer I think!



The Oracle says . . . HR (to Verschip)

The fair lady is leaving.

But a lawyer's here.
<ewg>



OOOPS!

Sorry MisterV....(HS)

I can't speak for you at all.

I don't know you well.

(2) My apologies

Oracle and MisterV

It's time for dinner. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . HS

I heard HIM conspiring
to prove he's human.</bi>

Ha Ha the Oracle can't type worth spit.

Did you, sir, mean "prophetic." You should quit. <g>



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:43 PM 14 of 39

Does a prophet thought come?

No. . . only beer gas.

Perhaps you'll help me prove to mister O.
that I'm a human being with a soul.



The repurcussions... (HS)
Posted by: glow - Apr 16, 2002, 7:40 PM 16 of 39

for bad spelling should be nil.

Oops! RepErcussions. <grin>



The Oracle says . . .HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:38 PM 17 of 39

Perhaps I meant the word "heals."

Perhaps I just goofed. <g>



Mister Verschip laughs . . . BV
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 16, 2002, 7:36 PM 18 of 39

All hail all mighty Oracle who spells
about as well as kitten poker chips. <g>



The Oracle says . . . HS (to glow)

I must be on my toes now. <smile>

Glow is on my heals.



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:31 PM 20 of 39

Hmmm . . . Perhaps Verschip's human.
Or insulated.

<g>



The one and only.... (HS)
Posted by: glow - Apr 16, 2002, 7:30 PM 21 of 39

glow, says to the Oracle

But you want Tea Time...

(2) to function within

your laws and lines of verses

Don't both create art?

(3) Don't want to argue.

Just making a point or two.

I love Tea as is.

Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 16, 2002, 7:29 PM 22 of 39

I think someone somewhere said "Old is New."

Now let me see what five downed beers will do. <g>

Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:27 PM 23 of 39

The Vampire slayer exists
by blending old forms.

Well, Buffy's "Prophecy" just goes to hell
as we talk Hollywood. Oh, just as well.



The Oracle says . . . HS (to glow)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:22 PM 25 of 39

Hollywood cannot function
outside frozen lines.



Mister Verschip says . . . RC
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 16, 2002, 7:21 PM 26 of 39

This bus'ness about prophecy and law . . .

I'll call a cop and see if there's a flaw

in glow's analogy. Or is she right.

Oh bloody hell, drink beer. Let us not fight.



I forgot to add. (HR)
Posted by: glow - Apr 16, 2002, 7:19 PM 27 of 39

Hollywood always breaks rules.

I'll have one more beer.



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:18 PM 28 of 39

glow raises a profound point.

Let's see if it's sharp.
<smile>



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:16 PM 29 of 39

My welcome to glow who works
faithfully on verse.



Prophecy and law (HR)
Posted by: glow - Apr 16, 2002, 7:15 PM 30 of 39

Share similar qualities

Both can be broken.

(2) Both are meant to break

But are there consequences

or repurcussions?



Mister Verschip says . . . BV
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 16, 2002, 7:15 PM 31 of 39

Ah there's the every charming, beer-filled glow. <smile>


The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:12 PM 32 of 39

I speak of worldly power
occasionally.



The empty terrace (HR)
Posted by: glow - Apr 16, 2002, 7:12 PM 33 of 39

With all the beer I can drink

Is not the most fun.

Again with talk of Hollywood, my friend.


The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 16, 2002, 7:08 PM 35 of 39

In Hollywood most people
like their name LARGE type.

The bloody credits somehow got screwed up.

I thought the PowersThatTea could not do wrong?

The transient PORTAL's here.

The clock sometimes breaks.
