    Long-Locked Pirate Muse (or) Lighthearted Limerick Lover’s Plea to Writers – Part II

    In past when frustration was heightened
    With dry-run of words meant to brighten
    An impish rogue muse
    Appeared out of blue
    And flung several threats meant to frighten

    He teased us to beg inspiration
    While recklessly skewing causation
    He cackled with glee
    Flew off to the sea
    Free swilling his latest libation

    In months intervening we wondered
    What distant poetics were plundered
    But hearing no news
    (and singing no blues)
    Perhaps first critiquing had blundered?

    By chance in my travels I founded
    My initial worry still grounded
    He still may return
    Intending to burn
    Though tale needs more details expounded

    Old Malcolm, he got him a girlie
    By name of Penelope Surely
    She hasn’t a care
    Nor worry to spare
    Though some would describe her as burly

    She’s known for her skill as a smithy
    That may sound fantastic but prithee
    Just open your mind
    And maybe you’ll find
    The notion most charmingly pithy

    When forging most functional tooling
    Boganges observes her with drooling
    He finds her a catch
    In meeting his match
    Their antics they seem to be pooling

    He’s still making mischief with musing
    His tempting and teasing profusing
    So be on your guard
    He targets the bard
    Who thinks he’s above any bruising!

    Strewth! How do you do it? You're like the Mozart of rhyme, Rhymist; it just bubbles out in streams. You would be a star at some Elizabethan tavern, extemporising verbal play in reams; you'd have all the beery poet habitués cheering and toasting.

    And that Boganges I seem to recall from comment threads past.

      Yes, that plucky little fellow has returned (or at least his memory) and reared his long-lock head. I see this with multiple possibilities for further adventure, and am quite excited, though I'm not consciously privy to the itinerary. Thank you for the generously kind comments and the like. Writing like this is pure FUN!

      Thanks LG. I've never tried a pirate story before this one - it just kind of evolved.

    Ah, the link takes me back. That's right, the piratical Malcolm Boganges (a.k.a. Beauchange).

    It was also a sad reminder of folks who've been away from the Zone for too long: Brainwreck, Odonko-ba, Graydon A, and where's imrogue these days?

      I've been wondering about that too. Hoping some of the 'old-timers' (those who were here before me anyway) come back.

    This is great, RLW, Effortlessly unspooling limericks like so many fine threads!

    When I read this, I thought you were speaking of Robert Wendt, grant Sensei's tormentor. Even on a second read that terrible time comes vividly to mind!

      Oh no, I never had anything (or anyone) but the frustration of being unable to write as the intended protagonist. The whole limerick format came about because someone else (as usual) was doing it (it may have even been YOU) and I wanted to play along. That, plus the frustration of what to write - and the initial limerick string and pirate, aka Malcolm Boganges, was born!

    A litany of artful rhymes.

    You are consistently adept at painting vivid images, with impactful diction.

    Well done!

      Thanks DWAYNE. I know these longer reads, even if a sequel (maybe especially because a sequel), take time - so I appreciate that you spent some reviewing it. Thanks also for the like and kind comments!
