    This was written as a justification for a poem, some years ago.

    Perhaps modern readers might like to supply an alternative (loosewire?)

    I like a challenge,I can do a measurement poem for you when I
    get ready.I cannot help your lack of---------that you address
    to me.I am surprised that you would lower your coat of arms to
    the blade of my -------. Shakespear was a student of my
    gemini body of work.Woe to the ------ that dare Impose on the turf
    of the Moor of loosewire HEAR YE HEAR YE -There for,Where as
    Loosewire has been ---------- to a match of wits,in the Land far way
    he shall gather the words for that day.The match is so poor,the
    Challenge he adore.Such an outward task,the cannons shall Blast
    to announce to the world.

    At the risk of being OT, here is some verse for you. I penned these while at a friends cottage a couple of years ago. They are loosley based on the meter of some Tennyson classics. Can you guess whitch ones? Also, can you guess what took most of our time that weekend?


    #1
    He clasps the mug with crooked hands;
    Off in his own imaginary lands,
    Amidst the other drunks, he stands.
    The sticky floor beneath him crawls;
    He gazes at the spinning walls,
    And in a heap he falls.


    #2
    Smoke and putrid air,
    And another last call for me!
    And may there be no whining from the bar,
    When I get the drink in me,

    Too much I slide as I pass into sleep,
    My mind spins round the room,
    The spark that drew me like a feckless creep,
    Departs this gloom.

    Dim light and beery smell,
    As my vision goes dark!
    And hope there’s no madness in Hell,
    For whence I embark;

    For when we’ve passed out of this grimy place,
    The drunk may bear me far,
    I hope I’ve not left in disgrace,
    When I have closed the bar.


    #3
    Half a litre, half a litre
    Half a litre downward.
    Into the Valley of Delirium
    Stumbled the Six Drunkards.

    "Forward, the Gout Brigade!
    "Charge for the Tyson Trophy!" he said:
    Into the valley of Delirium
    Stumbled the Six drunkards

    "Forward, the Gout Brigade!
    Was there a man dismayed?
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to overdo or die.
    Ill-advisedly manly to Delirium
    Stumbled the six drunkards.

    Empties to the right of them,
    Empties to the left of them,
    Empties behind them
    "Nose tokes only!"
    Then sneezed with snot, Oh hell,
    Badly their heads did swell,
    On to relieve their Baldder,
    Into the inky gel
    Stumbled the six drunkards.

    Flash’d their dinkies bare,
    Flash’d as they pissed in air,
    Splashing the rocks out there,
    Farting and belching, while
    The passer’s by wondered;
    Plunged into the cabin’s-smoke,
    Right through the screen they broke;
    “Cock-sucker, quit pushin’”
    Reel’d from the sudden poke
    Sputter’d and blunder’d
    Then three fell back, and out
    Not the six drunkards.

    Empties to the right of them,
    Empties to the left of them,
    Empties behind them
    "More tokes? Holy!"
    While ‘nuther of them fell,
    They drank another spell,
    Come to the true Delirium.
    Time to ring the bell,
    All that was left of them,
    Left of six drunkards.

    When will their headaches fade?
    Oh, the wild night they made!
    The passer’s by wondered.
    Honor the binge they made.
    Honor the Gout Brigade,
    Noble six drunkards.

    Mr. Transistor

    Mr. Transistor sat strong and sure
    his sturdy die with bits unpure
    spent most his life with but one thought
    he had a say what went on and not
    then one day he thumped his chest
    to claim status above all the rest
    from far away across the board
    a big IC gave such retort
    "Of course, you make think this mean,
    but you're just a cog in this big machine.
    You prance, you dance with confidence bold
    but all you can do is what you're told."
    The very one once so proud and sure
    was hit with truth too raw to endure
    bzzzzzzzzzzt....poof..were his last words.

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Who got his foot stuck in a bucket
    Instead of lie stagnant,
    he glued on a big magnet,
    stepped on a beam and unstuck it.

    "First day at school"
    -------------------

    Who are U?
    Volta I R ....

    Miss Watt matched up Volta with Ampere
    While Mr Siemens sported a Mho

    Then with some resistance
    Ohm pushed Volta onto Ampere
