And those whose limbs have not been speared
And yet in life unscathed
Shall enter not into the Halls
Of other men so brave

TAKK SKAL DU HAR MIN VENN

Gefjon ploughed, the virgin's queen
Mother of kings
And hosts unseen

Oxen of 4 heads from giants
Sons they were
And born from sweat - not science
This island, now called Zealand

Odin's words to Loki brash
Do not anger Gefjon so
For each man's journey on this earth
As well as me, she knows

Disguised as beggar
Often seen
And yet lives on, this aged queen

Immortal

Count it a token of my respect that I'm sharing this but much as I like Coke too (or the PC brand of it) cut with a slice of lemon, I'm especially fond of Brio Chinotto. Now, if you've never had that, imagine a combination of Coke and oxblood shoe polish. I love it,
BUT
I'm a type 2 diabetic and Brio doesn't offer a diet variety. When I realized that chinotto was Italian for quinine, the solution occured to me: a glass of PC diet cola to which I add about a fifth of a glass of Tonic Water and - IT TASTES LIKE THE REAL THING!

once upon a time so very long ago
there was a teeny and tiny princess
with time ahead of herself to grow
that knew not yet she was a work
in progress of herself 'n her life's truth

for you see she knew back then not
even the smallest spilt bit of an inkling
of her worth and value for she knew not yet
grown up things but learned most quickly

as she grew up making her own mistakes
as all humans must in their ways do
yet not understanding simplicity that
her every action bred and had a reaction
good and bad with strength and power
to help or hurt others through and through
thoughts out loud which made herself
in the end sometimes but not always proud
for sometimes she threw tantrums very loud
till she learned it made other's ears bleed easily
so she looked inside her heart, learned and
then she was horrified so she decided only
she herself could change her ways to truly
make her own heart sing bright whether
in nights or days and it indeed helped greatly
so she could relax and live and breathe again
satisfied she could easily always strive to be
best in all challenges life throws at all of us

she had been in many conundrums n plights
before she realised one day whilst peering
deep outside passing time gazing at ocean blue
vastly seeking truths now known most fully true

life has a way of bringing kindred in
and lessons abounding all 'round too
part of the mystery of a well enjoyed
journey is in the friends and scenery
as well as collective reflections of two
smiles, jokes and laughter are equally
important in this maze we traverse
no matter if we believe in caste or not
classifications disappear as fog and dew

erik is so very gallant; this much is
indeed true and easily agreed upon for
any who've had pleasure of his presence
and his easy spirit, and by whatever means
we are all in our own ways blessed within
by his sincerity and honesty he lights up
all he shines upon; we all feel it too!
thank you kind sir, for being such a dear
and evolved gentleman with gleam in your
eyes and sweetness of words bestowed here
and there and everywhere you go, i'm sure!

Hang too much weight
on the neck of another
and both of you will drown.

Not even the woman you love
–though she be as fine or as strong
as you see her–can save you
if you are ready to be lost.

Tell a woman you want her,
by all means, and she might respond,
but tell her you need her
and she will, understandably, flee...

Skoal Erik, I lift my horn to thee
You'll see it in profile merrily
Lifted up as all mead horns should
Skoal! Drink deep! Ferment of bees.

Forgive the dawn for sins you commit
When under the spell of that thick spirit
Any who've drunk this brew will know
Tales wicked, incredible and ribauld

Lo, come to shore awhile
Let us drink to those gone
Ivon, Torvald, Hetva and Cahn.
Spill some drink for our friends
Who've beaten us, the **stards,
To Valhallas bastions.



Nice digs you've got here Eric. I especially like that christian in the cage, and the Orkney lass pillaged from the Isles.

May your spear and shield be always close to hand. May your blade never break. May the mist not hide your foes.

Woe-ahh... I loaded up the page and saw the archer-art. Thought it was for me. Twitched an eye-brow and remembered...

Viking prow upon the shore

Grab the children, flee!
Leave the fish, the goats
Barley, trinkets 'n oats
Haste to the caves above the sea!

But lo, wife, why do you pause?

'Because yon Eric, by ears I see'

What matters this dear, run with me!

'No, I'll stay--those ears my dear
So wide and big!
Made for wee hands
To hold and jig!'

Arrrgh wife yee wanton wench
Yee be nothin' but trouble e'er since
That damned Eric came whorin' ashore
Left me two boys and some awful sores.

For coinage of gold
I'll open my pocket
as wide as it goes
wouldn't want to drop it

money can't buy love
but it can purchase stuff
so I'll give fate a shove
so it gets off it's duff

When I'm swimming in trinkets
perhaps I'll look pretty
and sway the kinkettes
to forget that I'm witty

And forget that I'm old
and forget that I'm wrinkly
life belongs to the bold
and not to the stinkly

and now that I've posted
I think I'll go tinkly

Our scandalous viking
you may have a nibble
reply to her posthaste
and don't try to quibble

she's a cutie I see
so you won't need enhancement
just let things be
and wait for advancement

if I'm reading it right
she'll do all the work
so try to relax
and enjoy all the perks

^^^Liked this one Eric. The use of the heavy 'oh' sound throughout lent it weight, a kind of somber eloquence.

Merry Christmas to all!!!

And if you don't like the idea of 'christ'mas, what's not to like about St Nick, patron saint of wh0res, drunks and the playful?

Eric, I hope you don't mind me including the following piece in your thread. I thought you and those who are kin would enjoy it. I have to confess I published it some time ago, so if there are any naughty little elvish thieves out there thinking about stealing it, go ahead. Just put down 'written by S. Savage' or some such thing. No biggy. Pass it on if you like it.

Through the dark and dingy halls
The little roaches creep.

" Keep close to the walls! "
Yells Master Sergant Sneep.

In single file low
They make their way toward

An open door a-glow:
The kitchen of the human Howard.

A scuttling leap
And each one's through
To behold such a heap!
Of yummy christmas chews.

" Now listen up! " Says Sneep,
His brow furrowed and stern
" Grab only the good eats,
Or I'll feed ye to the worms!
"

Pincers click as all agree
And up the table legs the go: oh so quickly.

And behold! What a feast!
As few had seen before...
Candies, vegies and meats
And Oh! SO much more!

Then came the sound
From through the other room
Of Howards hound--
The hound named Gloom

The roaches stopped in dread
As they heard his clicking tread
Approach closer to their room
Till in the door he loomed.

" Quick! " Yelled Sneep " Into the turkey breast! "
And there they did scamper to make a little nest.

Then Gloom the hound
With a leap and a bound
Did jump upon the table of fable

With slavering jaw he did pant over it all
Till finally he decided the turkey was his to maul.

With a crunch and a munch he bit into the bird
And that was the last
The little
Roaches
Heard.

Glad you liked it PoetFriend.

Years ago it got read out on cbc by someone who caught the timber of the poem well. That published version was a lot tighter than the original draft which is unfortunately the only copy I had left, and one that I tapped off to the good Vikings thread yesterday. So my appologies for it being a little clumsy in spots.

Perhaps the Viking is off to the Isle of Man to search some plunder. You know you'll tide cheer.

Hey Erik, posted this on First Line Last Line but thought you might like it, since you're so naughty....


Rutting Hour 12/31/06


Juniper of julys Angst
fresh water sluice the summers skankst
breasts rise in appreciation
core heats in anticipation

watching from beneath my lashes
tractor making endless passes
shirtless farmers gleaming muscles
daydream of erotic tussels

sweetheart, throw a glance my way
lay a blanket on the hay
your field can wait another hour
surrender to the rutting power

LS

If you can have angst, you can have skankst, it's the presence of skank...

How's this for subtle? 1/13/07

you call yourself subtle
I'm sure tongue in cheek
well here's my rebuttal
and it's not for the meek

my knock-kneed legs and pigeon toes
would never stoop to winding
round you, my wrinkled boney foe
I know you won't be minding

I saw your lolita trolling post
and all the nubile honeys
responding to the horny host
ya better have some money

you post here with impunity
regardless of the egos crushed
beware there's no immunity
I hope your nasty voice gets hushed

You've hijacked a review thread
and insulted the OP
and now you post full steam ahead
insulting obliviously

You claim the posters here are dull
and lacking in intelligence
insulting those you stand beside
reveals your lack of common sense

you seem to know some ten cent words
you use them well to denigrate
you're just a monkey flinging turds
I really wish you'd emigrate

go somewhere else where aged men
look longingly at little girls
pedophiles have always been
go live among the other squirrels

LS

Erik, is that a submarine on bottom, or a cruise ship? I guess it's a matter of depth perception, or looking at it from a horizontal or vertical viewpoint.....

My ode to you Autumn

Autumn could teach you of manners and class
but you would never absorb it
you enjoy behaving like a solid gold ass
but soon you'll be sent into orbit

The lady has more class than you ever will
residing in her little finger
just keep continuing being a pill
and see how long you'll linger

LS

PS: You really shouldn't have insulted Erik, and Autumn is a class apart.....quit picking on my friends....

Good god, the windows are all fogged up in here! What have you been up to all by yourselves?

Ode to salsa

Oh I miss my pineapple-mango salsa
mixed with my chipotle
I had to go bare on my chimichanga
and on salsa I'm fairly dotely (it's my poem, I can make up words!)

It doesn't taste the same at all
I really miss the spice
it makes it rather bland and dull
and that's not very nice

I buy it at the Aldi store
it's in another town
I simply HAVE to get some more
It's really got me down

LS 1/25/07

PS. If Jimmy Buffet can sing about a cheeseburger, I can write about salsa.....

addendum

and if Jimmy Buffet buys my words
then I'll go buy a case
hope he looks at the words of nerds
so I can stuff my face

Skunks are actually sort of curious about us....I had a family living in the culvert at the end of my drive for a couple years. More than once I fed the cats only to realize one of the cats WAS A SKUNK and carefully backed away. The other cats did not seem to realize they were eating alongside a varmint...and really, would you speak up if you were a cat? Nossir...

My daughters boyfriend live trapped them and moved them to some wooded acreage seven miles away....they were eating all my cat's food...and I didn't want to call animal control because they would kill them.

Hey Erik, had this in the limerick thread, but I know you likes the silly stuff....

there was a gal with two legs
who came in to play with the wags
they made fun of her gams
the bunch of great hams
she'd show em her butt, but it sags

the neighborhood has
it's own little skunk
eating the pet food
and being a punk

he's not really small
he has a great diet
he waits for nightfall
when all becomes quiet

cats as you know
leave food in their dish
to finish it up
is Stripes fondest wish

He waddles between
the various farms
getting larger each year
and escaping harm

he's becoming a legend
in our little area
so far uncontested
stop him, I dare ya

Paris Hilton's too easy to sack....

tongued into kisses
I drink you
essential
my water, my air
starving hands
scooping flesh
ravenously
my heart
a fluttering moth
