Exulting in Authority

Oh how I love the garbage to delete!
The process fills my pulsing soul with thrills
With which naught ever could hope to compete.
'Tis quite like taking aim from window sills ––

High above the vulgar madding crowd ––
At mischief-makers' furtive machinations
Engaging in atrocious acts unbowed
By decency or prudent calculations. 

What fun to act the role of unknown sniper
Picking off the brigands self-directed!
Better that than letting vicious vipers
Nurse on blameless bosoms undetected.

Exulting as I wield my scimitar
I lop the heads off trolls who’ve gone too far.

    1. The Head Always Comes Off, of course, what else could it be?

      You know I maintain an anti-Initial, anti-Acronym policy in the interest of promoting clear communication. I only let this stand for two reasons.

      1. We haven't seen you in quite some time, and I am glad you are, apparently, still alive and reasonably well.

      2. Im hoping you may return and tell us what you are taking about, because I have no idea? Unless it's the USA, the FBI, the IRS, the CIA, the UK, or NATO, I haven't a cue,an frankly I don't like using even those all-too-familiar initials all the time.

    2. THACO = To Hit Against Armor Class Zero.

      I've been feeding my inner geek and replaying Baldur's Gate lately.

    3. Oh! Well, I think "The Head Always Comes Off" is far more appropriate in the context of scimitar-wielding, Islamaniacs. But thank you for coming back to clarify, even though the explanation is nearly as cryptic and abstruse as the bare initials.

  3. Another great poem, FreeThinke.

    A few trolls spoil the whole thread...

  4. Tinkle tinkle in a can,
    sprinkle sprinkle a little sand

    Words like water flowing from a sage,
    across the scripted page

    In daylight sun we bask,
    night darkness takes us to task

    Truth awaits the finding,
    against the onslaught of the blinding

    1. Alas Alack, though you tried hard,
      We have to say, you are no Bard.


      The Truth is harsh, but always matters
      Even though it never flatters.

    1. Not completely true, Rusty. Ducky -- sometimes -- behaves himself very well here and enters into legitimate dialogue about non-political subjects.
