A poem…

sent to me, which I have been given permission to post anonymously. (The author of the poem, not me. It’s pretty obvious I’m not anonymous *g*)

Warning: the following poem contains language determined by the RWA to be inappropriate for mature, adult readers.

What kind of sleazy writer can’t say breast instead of tit?
And our heroines are virtuous, they don’t use words like shit
We don’t care if it’s a rooster, no cock here will do
And as for that word cunt, if you think it, shame on you
There isn’t any reason for a word like motherfucker
And romance just isn’t like that so yours should never say cocksucker!


In other news, my ReferrerKarma keeps arbitrarily blacklisting people. I try to check it every couple/few days to see if it’s on track, and today I find out it banned Sylvia and Booksquare. Last week it was somebody else, and I know it’s banned Monica at some point. Hello! Why?

I do not like when my computer thinks it’s smarter than me.

There once was a chick who wrote books
But her ‘puter thought she was a kook
So it kept people away
Different ones every day
And tried to pass it off as a fluke.

    I hate those random bans! Mine keeps banning Suzanne M. and Ellen F. but poker spam is okay? I think NOT! :censor:

    Nice limerick!

    I believe limericks are a vital part of being asinine. :dance:

    A writer of some ill-repute
    gave a lecture that’s still in dispute.
    There was fainting and sighing
    and yes even dying.
    and all over hooching the cooch.

    I’d say more, but I’m supposed to be shutting down the computer. Thunderstorms. :shock:

    Thank you. :) Anonymous’s poem helped cheer me up, so I asked her to let me post it. :grin:

    I figured some limericks couldn’t hurt either.

    I’m working on a multi-verse limerick for tomorrow. You know, when I’m not editing.
