  • His Masterpiece

    “A masterpiece by Jove!” Well, so, said he.
    His tour de force, unique, and he as much.
    And who were we, to dare to disagree,
    Though no one ever knew of it, as such.
    It suited him, the fame, and all of that,
    And he enriched the club’s esprit de corps.
    A portraitist, assigned, he thusly sat;
    Bestowed on him the title of a, ‘Sir’.
    His masterpiece was hailed to great applause,
    While far and near, we searched, ’twas never found.
    In private hands? Who knows, one could suppose;
    A cult perhaps, who kept it underground?
    When passed away, he sallied forth with wit,
    “A masterpiece!” He laughed, and that was it.

    he sallied forth with wit,
    a Wildean skit
    no doubt, as such
    even in Saint-Germain-de-Pres
    wallpaper can prove too much

    Either this wallpaper goes or I do.” — Oscar Wilde.
    First of all, what he actually said was, “This wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death.

    RhymeZone Forums was extremely important to me. When I joined the site – in April 2016 – I was truly humbled that so much talent would accept a Simple Rhymer. However, a few months ago I decided to pull away due to – what I felt – was an abundance of SPAM postings and comments.

    Recently, I was asked to become a Moderator to assist the other Moderators – and Administrators - in combating these SPAM postings and comments. It was my honor to enthusiastically accept.

    I pledge to take the time to review the site daily (multiple times) and take appropriate action when necessary. I thank you for your contributions, and if you are considering withdrawing your talents – or have already done so – I sincerely hope you will reconsider.
