    Sounds like some mischievous things going on here, Grant. I like this whimsical write.

      I can't be a portentous prat all the time, Alexandra.

    I don't view you as vain - the spell check keeps changing vain to Cain, lol. You are a challenge and you inspire us to dig deeper -- I like that. When I have time, I "drink and absorb" what you're saying but honestly most of the days, I don't have time. However I like to be challenged. But you are kind in your comments and that also speaks volumes about the type of person you are. :-)

      That is very gracious of you to say, Alexandra. Thank you for being so generously inclined. Funny, that spellcheck: the computer insisting I have the mark of Cain. Agh! It knows I did in my milquetoast brother. Hahahahahahaha. My own practice of 'drink and absorb' is more likely to involve 'cheap wine and a three-day growth'.

      Not only are you, a consummate poet, you are a funny man as well. I agree with Alexandra, your work leaves one's mouth, agape in wonder.

    With mirth and merry - he now doth tarry
    Me thinks this calls for toast!
    Midst pixie fairy or works more wary
    He's every right to boast!

      I do believe Titania fair
      Would flower you with praise
      Poetic sword you yield is rare
      Bespeaking not malaise
      While fairies play and piskies prank
      Mere mortals stand in awe
      With wit and wile you do beguile
      Through worlds of words you draw

      Poor Bottom bewitched
      But one mischievious strand taled
      Love true - played falsely

      Of ass, man - or both?
      Appearances do deceive
      Mid summer night's dream

    A most charming, fantastical, and lyrical rhyming adventure into piskiedom, grant! I absolutely love it!
    Perhaps, one should google Damask and Ruefoil and see what comes up!
    I did, and was greeted with shock and surprise!

      MHenry, may the piskies never piss you off, but ever be helpful sprites.

    I thought I had invented Ruefoil; no reference there. I know what damask is. I originally made it Disdamask, i.e. an unraveller of damask, but thought it might throw readers off with regard to pronunciation.

      And I think you did... the first 'hit' on google was a reference to your post on Rhymezone! (no help there...)

    Aha! I have coined the pisky name Ruefoil. My immortal legacy to the intertubes! My name shall appear in the better sort of dictionaries!

      What is pisky? sounds a little risky. Not in my dictionary nor is Ruefoil

        It's an alternative spelling of pixie, Brain.

          Thank you. Now I know. You have to explain lots of things to me.

          Well, it is really to understand.

          Could Pixkies be a pesky pixie?
