Hello, Mr V, sir.
Not read any apology
Heading there right now

Fearing that you will
(as usual) slip away
I will say right now

That I'm all too glad
To make the peace with FP
So farewell for now

The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip . . . and anyone listening <smile>)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:58 PM 3 of 29

A good strategy there "friend." <smile>
Quit while you're ahead.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:57 PM 4 of 29

With your approval . . . I might change the world. <smile>

But time is running out, so I'll shut up. <g>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip . . . smiling)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:54 PM 5 of 29

If you keep this up, Verschip
you might gain a pass.
<smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:53 PM 6 of 29

OK, I understand. You're like a ref.

You can't let friendship color what you rule.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding "friends")
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:51 PM 7 of 29

Within this room . . . I cannot.
My duty comes first.



Mister Verschip says . . . (HS to The Oracle in semi-disbelief)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:49 PM 8 of 29

Well who's inhuman now? You have no friends?


The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding "friend")
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:47 PM 9 of 29

No gatekeeper can
allow friendship to evolve.
And still do his job.



Mister Verschp says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:45 PM 10 of 29

I leave that judgement to your call, my friend.

If you'll excuse me calling you that word.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding "a special toast")
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:44 PM 11 of 29

I wrote a sonnet for it.
That should be enough.
<smile>



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:42 PM 12 of 29

Hey, Mr. O., I think this should require
a special toast in honor of your goof. <g>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to himself)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:40 PM 13 of 29

I'm delighted for the chance
to clear up that goof.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV introducing himself to yelnif)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:39 PM 14 of 29

Hello, Ms. yelnif, I've heard much of you.

It seems the Oracle did kiss your feet
for making a mistake a bit ago.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif who's just walked in)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:36 PM 15 of 29

I'm so glad to see yelnif . . .
I hope you have read . . .

. . . the apology
that I wrote to you back in
sonnet 39.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip regarding today's rhetorical verse re EOTD)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:34 PM 16 of 29

I heard it throught he grapevine
it took too much time.



....
Posted by: yelnif - Apr 20, 2002, 7:33 PM 17 of 29

Oh hey, it's FP
seems he has a new play mate
How interesting



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle regarding "Mummy Girl "Haiku)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:32 PM 18 of 29

That kind of think is easy for my mind.

But there was only one act of the show
converted to this form. Why only that?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip about today's rhetorical verse)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:30 PM 19 of 29

Could you follow the sequence?

Was the story clear?



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:28 PM 20 of 29

Let's shift our focus to the game at hand.

I read the "Mummy Girl" haiku just now.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:25 PM 21 of 29

The only insanity
is our big HEADER.

I sincerely hope
the producers shrink it down
so it will load fast.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:24 PM 22 of 29

I much appreciate those kudos to my brain.

Good Lord, do people think we are insane?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:21 PM 23 of 29

My! Your intelligence grows.

You are quite right there.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to The Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:20 PM 24 of 29

Well, as you know, I seek a PORTAL PASS.

But I don't think you're ready to allow
my passage through that WESTERN WALL just yet.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to Verschip)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:17 PM 25 of 29

Ah, there I hear you well now.
Why have you come back?



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to the Oracle)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:14 PM 26 of 29

I must have time to get my verse in gear.
I don't always speak verse when not in here.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to nobody in particular)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 20, 2002, 7:13 PM 27 of 29

Again I hear verseless noise
babbling about what?



Mister Verschip wanders in . . . a bit later than usual . . . and mumbles to himself (as usual)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 20, 2002, 7:11 PM 28 of 29

Good Lord, the producers messed up the header again.

When will they get this right?
