I think the Oracle feels that its fate
may not lead to it getting one good date
in all eternity . . . it sits alone
and guards this stupid portal. Poor poor thing.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to nobody in particular)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:54 PM 3 of 26

I am the PORTAL keeper.

No one gives a d@mn.
<smile>



oops (typo warning).

"punished" of course.


The frat boys (HR)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 22, 2002, 7:53 PM 5 of 26

Anti-rich epi?
Well I did not see it so.
Good point of course, "O."

I guess I just saw:
B's attempt as normalcy
Once more was puniched.



Mister Verschip says . . . (BV to SL with a smile of a kind he cannot spell <g>)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 22, 2002, 7:51 PM 6 of 26

My sweet apologies for playing games
with your deserv-ed fees, I'm sure are high.

The equal of the quality you bring
to these enviorns.

What the hell is "C"?



To Mr. V. (HR)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 22, 2002, 7:46 PM 7 of 26

Dear Mr. Verschip
You can't afford me, trust me.
A pound? Such insult!

Lawyers, male or not,
Have special powers, my dear.
Beware of the "C."



The Oracle says . . . (HS to SL regarding Reptile Boy)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:43 PM 8 of 26

I heard FP defended
the frat boys (somewhat).

Not that they weren't bad.
But HEAVY anti-rich slant.
And for wrong reasons.

BUT as for your points
I would agree completely.
Except where I don't. <smile>



EOSD (poor attempt at following the "rules"!)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 22, 2002, 7:39 PM 9 of 26

I guess Reptile Boy
Was a story of...
weakness. A lesson.

Frat boys seem so cool
And the girls want to fit in.
But what deception.

All that glitters is
Not gold, not fun, not safe, girls.
"Uncool" is better.



Mister Verschip says . . . (RC to SL regarding sneaky lawyers <g>)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 22, 2002, 7:39 PM 10 of 26

I thought a lawyer's hands were in my soup.

To get in here I had to loop-to-loop [g]

But you're a pleasant face to have around
how much flesh do you charge. More than a pound?



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif as she flys out the door )
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:36 PM 11 of 26

Glad we have straightened things out.
Study well, dear Y.

I did not have a chance to read the verse
forensicpopouri put out today.

It usually comes out earlier each day,
what is the schedule for the sonnet posts?



The Power of the "C" (HR)
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - Apr 22, 2002, 7:33 PM 13 of 26

You want to kill "C"
"C" strikes back and gives you Hell...
Or the Terms of Use!



hmmmm interesting
Posted by: Duckwheat - Apr 22, 2002, 7:32 PM 14 of 26

I heard about the new agreement page. So I closed all my Bronze browsers and viola there it was. Well just a test post. Never been in your thread before. Hello good folks.
Later

Well, Oracle, Sir,
Yet again I need some sleep
(Damn bloody Time zones)

Flew by to ensure
A lasting peace between us
Now I must be off

Tea times restricted
To weekends, for me, sorry,
while I'm still at school!



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:29 PM 16 of 26

The rules here are surely strange. <g>

Thanks for your insight. <smile>



Mister Verschip says (BV to everyone)
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 22, 2002, 7:27 PM 17 of 26

The bloody bouncer would not let me in.

Told me the bloody Terms of Use instead.

I've heard some other people say that too
Or I would think I was a criminal. <smile>



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif and all)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:25 PM 18 of 26

There's some Bronze log in problems.
I heard others moan.


Seems OK for now.
On with the show everyone. <smile>
Tech discos will break. <g>



Technical test
Posted by: Mister_Verschip - Apr 22, 2002, 7:22 PM 19 of 26

Indeed I read it
Apology heartily
accepted. Thankyou.



(Ahem) Having read the corkboard...
Posted by: yelnif - Apr 22, 2002, 7:10 PM 23 of 26

Well if it's sonnets you're after
Then I'll give it a go, for you
Yelnif shouts over the audience's laughter
Then reverts back to trusty old haiku:

Dearest forensic
Got carried away before
I really must learn

Not to ask questions.
I'm in your disco, only
fair I dance your dance.



The Oracle says . . . (HS to yelnif)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - Apr 22, 2002, 7:10 PM 24 of 26

No FP in here, my dear. <g>

You read 39?

(Yelnif saunters in)
"Greetings, FP, Sir
Barkeep, something soft."
