Agreed. And anyway I must now blow
off on an errand promised for a friend.

Good-bye until tomorrow. Sleep well, chap.
Of course, I don't believe you sleep at all.

A little late or too late?

Oh well! C'est la vie!



The Oracle says . . . (BV to Verschip)

The hour of Eight approaches.

Perhaps when glow's here.

You spoke of Hollywood last time we met.
You spoke of tribes and rules . . . so please go on.

And if you would, this time, include the point
that glow -- the only one -- raised in the realm
of art and power . . . though I paraphrase.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)

At last . . . some intelligence.

Use those smarts better.

OK, I get it. You see what you want.
You saw that sodding ad. I know you did.
But if you want to play the game that way . . .

Alright. This is your room. The rules are yours.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:46 PM 8 of 26

I did not see anything.

I see only verse.

I TRIED to pay you CASH the other day.

You're taking SODDING ADS! Is that OK?

We now return you to our production/connection in progress.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:37 PM 11 of 26

I am the appointed one.

Not many takers.

Oh, bloody radiation is it, mate.

And you're the one who judges how I rate?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:33 PM 13 of 26

It's gamma radiation
that can cause a glitch.

And I would think your "English chip" would know
just where and when apostrophes should go. <g>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:29 PM 15 of 26

I thought you're verse processor
would function better.
<smile>

I see you shift the manner of your speech.
I'll follow your example. . . . You're the god. <g>



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

Invoking the word "fellow"
will not make you one.

Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 17, 2002, 7:23 PM 18 of 26

I see you're still stuck on that bleeding point,
though I'm the only fellow in this joint.



The Oracle says . . . HS (to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:20 PM 19 of 26

And if you were a human,
I'd take better care.

I would appreciate it, Mr. O.
if you would spell my name right, if you please. <smile>

The VERSE RULE applies always.

All must obey it.



Mister Verschip says . . . BV (to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 17, 2002, 7:14 PM 22 of 26

Just testing, mate. I thought you'd let it pass.
The two of us is all I see right now.



The Oracle says . . . HS
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 17, 2002, 7:12 PM 23 of 26

I now hear a STRANGE noise.

But I see no VERSE.
