"Special Appearance," my a**.
Tea Powers -- you err!

Here. They are little without,
Breath to give them voice.

They require meaning,
For their music to the sea
And to us. So paint...

Oracle, FP,
or sound us a picture clear
of the meaning here.

I ask for knowledge. I ask.
By what means I pass...

Through this curious
shimmering, tea time portal
with plat'num tea leaves?



Storm this tea portal!

Take action now! Demand truth!
Speak Oracle though...

Time has passed for you.
Tell us -- has Verschip gone through?
Obtained a P. pass?

My vote is all yours!
No debate, opposition...
Ugly as can be! <smile>



Angelus speaks of passion...
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 13, 2002, 7:58 PM 9 of 33

He speaks, that's true, but
Does he know? Perhaps. Just think:
"To kill you must love"



HR to whoever the voice belongs to
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 13, 2002, 7:57 PM 10 of 33

Angelus was made
Of pure nietzchien passion.
"Reason" he has none.



And so I shall vote: (HS)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 13, 2002, 7:56 PM 11 of 33

To SL -- her extra feet
merit three tea leaves

BK's haiku sum
A Gem with insight, I see
so also three leaves

For my spin, I'll ask
No DEMAND, my due three leaves
Plus one for delay

As for Tea Leaves it will wait.

You hear a voice say . . . (HS)
Posted by: ThePowersThatTea - May 13, 2002, 7:54 PM 14 of 33

Angelus spoke of passion . . .

       But what does he know?



Hello To all here (HR)
Posted by: VretilRaduriel - May 13, 2002, 7:53 PM 15 of 33

I've made a mad dash to tea
So sorry I'm late!

I suspect FP
and company want for us
to decide what we...

will vote as to the
most precious plat'num tea leaves
ugly democracy



HR to prunehilda
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 13, 2002, 7:52 PM 16 of 33

I guess we're helpless
Without "God's" supervision!
How disappointing!



SL ! Good on you.

Drumming up a little bit
of business can't hurt.



Can't talk Passions since
Posted by: prunehilda - May 13, 2002, 7:48 PM 18 of 33

I don't watch soaps anymore
There's too much heartache

And too little of
even a remote chance of
reality. HuH?

The first feeling of
Fear and Confusion wore of.
I'm ready to roll.

Would you like to, say,
Discuss Passions or Tea Time?
Up to anything! <smile>



HR to prunehilda
Posted by: Supernatural lawyer - May 13, 2002, 7:40 PM 23 of 33

Just re-read F's words.
Are we lab rats left alone
For him to study?

It's creepy. A test?
The final round of weirdness?
Why no need for O?

F must be curious
To see what his victims can
Do without his lead.



HS to SL) Think we are being

quick and improvise.

Sorry I'm late dear.
Clients, phone calls... the usual.
I made it Thank God.

What's this new Tea Time format
All about? I'm lost.

No more Oracle.
V left me too... souless "thing"!
Give me your ideas.

WELCOME TO TEA TIME ... where the RULE is: VERSE ONLY ... The Oracle's HERE

TOMORROW WE'LL HAVE
"PREVIOUSLY AT TEA TIME ". . .
TODAY, THERE'S NO TIME.<g>

WELL . . . THERE'S TIME FOR THIS:
Mister Verschip has vanished.
What will happen now?

The participants
may have to figure things out
between commercials.

The Oracle's HERE . . .
BUT he may be "hard to reach."
Crazy? Powerful?

SILENCE may well reign
if you do not choose to act.
Sponsors might get mad. <ewg>

But the Oracle
seems not to care about that. . .

YOU HEAR THIS: ACTION.
