Earlier you stated that most of my poetry is based on that of others.
I can only go by what I've *seen* of course, but, yes, most of the
poetry you've posted here has been non-original reworks of other
people's ideas.

I don't have psychic abilities to see what isn't there like you claim
to have, Cythera, so I can only go by what I've seen.
Post by Cythera
Let's see the link.
Sure, here's the link & the actual poem:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Njes_L9ZDgQ

Corning Town

I'm out walking again,
ignoring the pain.
Living like a poor boy again,
streets and sheets of rain.

In the early twilight,
dewdrops on the glass.
Her lazy hazy sway,
through Midsummer past.

She's still there,
in her underwear.
But my mem'ry and I
can't make contact again.

Where ever you've been or
what you're doing while you're there.
I just can't concern myself,
or pretend I care.

Under a jinx,
black cloud of Charlie Brown.
Sometimes I'm up,
most times I'm back down.

Deep river monkey
anyway you look at it.
Just too concerned,
to let her go.

Looking through a mirror
somewhere in Shadowville.
Pocket full of quarters,
payphone is my thrill.

Knocking the Union,
seen serpents fall.
Out in the distance,
among the croaking frogs.

Deep river monkey,
across the divide.
This is the year,
we shall be blamed.

Fair thee well my butterfly,
I'm bound for Corning Town.
Let me watch your eyes smile,
for a minute or two.

That's not me,
I'm not on YouTube no more.
Some other Touchdown Jesus,
is breaking her heart.

Bon voyage, my Bluebird Girl,
I'll hit the road a while.
Up to Russell County,
with the little red fox.

Mist in the snow,
mist in the snow.
Missed her I know,
on these shaky streets.

I'm out walking again,
ignoring the pain.
Living like a poor boy,
streets and sheets of rain.

In the early twilight,
dewdrops on the glass.
Her lazy hazy sway,
through a sweet summer past.

"Cythera, from what I've seen, most of the poetry that you've posted
here you've based on Morpheal, Rainshadow, Hearn... me. "
Link to four of those poems total.
No, Cythera, now it's my turn to ask you a couple of questions.

How many poems have you posted here over, say, the last year? Out of
those, how many were original poems not based on poetry by Morpheal,
Rainshadow, Hearn or me?

More than four? Less than four?

No, Cythera, you don't make the rules here, and so this is just

I answered your question:

"Cythera, from what I've seen, most of the poetry that you've posted
here you've based on Morpheal, Rainshadow, Hearn... me."

Now, answer my question:

How many poems have you posted here over, say, the last year? Out of
those, how many were original poems not based on poetry by Morpheal,
Rainshadow, Hearn or me?
More than four? Less than four?

After you answer that, then you can ask me another question.

Then, I have another question for you... since you pretend to be a
mind reader you no doubt already think you know what that is, don't
you, Cythera?

Drunkery.
About this recent choice to lower your level to name-callng, Cythera,
I'll remind you of my statements on that from yesterday:

http://groups.google.com/group/alt.arts.poetry.comments/msg/da8efba54159d9c3
Post by Cythera
Post by Will Dockery
Should I think up some nasty names for you to respond to this new smear
tactic of yours in kind, Cythera?
Aren't you happy with the ones your online friends use?
I'm not really "happy" about any of the name calling, but the fact is
your "friends" began the trend, Cythera.

You've probably forgotten when they called you similar names when you
weren't on their side of the fence. Here's one that's surfaced, which
even includes a rare poem by Barbara's Cat... written to you!

http://www.n-n-a.com/recreational/post-552668.html
Post by Cythera
I really don't care
That's fine, then, Cythera... and since you "don't care", I expect you
won't be continuing to post the smears & misrepresentations about me
that you have been lately, either? Either way, just understand that if
you post them, I'll simply come later and correct them, and also note
that you're spreading them.

Hmmm... maybe you did, after all.

now Batty has two hats
neither of them stolen
a red hat that is good
and a stripy hat that's new
but let it not be said
that the red hat is old
or the stripy hat is bad
both are good and in fashion

his striped hat is blue
for Dunce's misery and green
for Dunce's envy and bile
not even I hear Batty speak
but perhaps he says
fuck off Dunce and die

lafcadio had a white hat
Lafcadio Hearn, interestingly, also had a "Cythera" connection.. he
was born there!

http://www.jstor.org/pss/2920285

Lafcadio Hearn's mother was from "one of the best families from the
island of Cerigo: the antique Cythera, just south of ancient Sparta in
the Mediteranean Sea..."

And from:

http://tinyurl.com/Hearn-Cythera

"Cythera, the birthplace not only of Aphrodite but of Lafcadio Hearn,
both hovering on the water as insubstantially as puffs of pale blue
smoke..."

References linkig Hearn to Cythera are multiple, in fact:

http://tinyurl.com/2c3qlz5

Interesting coincience, eh?

Awesome.

I guess that's what really smart people like george like to do: infer that
other people in the ng are gay.

I say *like to do*, but that would infer that such activity makes george
happy, and we all know that's not the case.
Apparently, he does it because he thinks it demonstrates how intelligent he

Well, gg may want to pretend to know it all, but hose types always
stumble evntually, such as..

Wonder if Cythera will pretend she *didn't* know what a connection she
has to Lafcadio Hearn, naming herself afer his mother's home and his
birthplace, not to mention what led me to learning about him in the
first place, her obvious borrowing of his ideas:

http://www.freak-search.com/en/thread/1386312/fuji-san_george_dance/3

"Lafcadio Hearn had the idea that Fuji looked like a straw hat in
1898...":

"They supplied me with a pilgrim-staff, heavy blue tabi (that is to
say, cleft-stockings, to used with sandals), a straw hat shaped like
Fuji, and the rest of a pilgrim's outfit;--telling me to be ready to
start with them at four o'clock in the morning."

Wonder if Cythera will pretend she *didn't* know what a connection she
has to Lafcadio Hearn, naming herself afer his mother's home and his
birthplace, not to mention what led me to learning about him in the

Name two of those ideas and show, don't tell, that I have ever read
anything by Hearn.

In other words, you will not back up your claim that I've borrowed
multiple ideas from Lafcadio Hearn.
And no, you won't show I've read him.

Betty's 14 Days of Christmas
http://gdancesbetty.blogspot.com/search/label/Christmas
21 - A Christmas Greeting - Walt Whitman
20 - Santa's Letter - Bernice Ann Page
19 - Now thrice welcome Christmas - William Winstanley
18 - It is the day that he was born - Alfred Tennyson
17 - The Burning Babe - Robert Southwell
Good old Betty..!
Hey, when it comes to "notable poets" and/or "notable poems", I'd pick
one of Betty's lists over one of ggamble's any day. 8)
Betty has a stolen hat.
now Batty has two hats
neither of them stolen
a red hat that is good
and a stripy hat that's new
but let it not be said
that the red hat is old
or the stripy hat is bad
both are good and in fashion
his striped hat is blue
for Dunce's misery and green
for Dunce's envy and bile
not even I hear Batty speak
but perhaps he says
fuck off Dunce and die
--
PJR :-)
lafcadio had a white hat
george told us
[I'd put one on Mt. Fuji
to keep the mountain cool]
george read "hat" in lafcadio
he told us
he stuck one on my poem
what a tool
"it's in the archives"
I think yours is funnier than mine.

Will Dockery's "Fawn Greyhound" (parody by Cythera)
Post by Cythera
Fawn greyhound ---
your magic oven
Kenner Easy Bake
The shimmering minutes
til cookies are ready
making your acquaintance
under the shade tree
Coming to your smile
greeted at the door
welcomed with my green shoes in your mouth.
Fawn greyhound ---
sweet golden cookies
some with blue sprinkles
fresh from the oven
swim in your darkened food bowl.
Fawn greyhound ---
greeted at the door
there by your door-flap
Glad-eyed lady
of the lowland
wild running child.
Fawn greyhound
to lie repeatedly in your smile
sweet glow of your presence
did you like your biscuits?
Based on a poem by Will Dockery

Thanks, Will. I enjoy reading and finding these poems, and I think
others will enjoy them, too. That's the whole point here; to get poems
to readers. It's a good day to remind everyone that TBB is not just
shutting down Christmas the day after, but that we'll be running
Christmas poems till the 30th (followed by two New Year's poems).

I updated Betty's list, above, so that it's current as of this
morning, as this will be the only post I'll send to aapc about the
series today.

Yes, the bittersweet holiday standards... at his Christmas party at
Woolfolk Mansion last night, flautist Geno played for us one of the
tapes of the performances we did last year with other local singer-
songwriters of X-mas standards, at an old folks home, the Rivercenter
For Performing Arts, Idle-Hour Park, and on, including my cover of
"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". I didn't know any tapes
existed of those shows, but maybe next year we can release some of
that, or at least mine as a single, cover art something like this:

Anyway, proably it won't happen because of copyrights and so on, as I
asume "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" isn't a public domain
tune. Perhaps someday I'll write my own holiday tune...

Thanks. I'd appreciate that; as always I'd like to get as many readers
as I can. And I think I've got some really good works in the hopper
for Christmas Eve and Day, and Boxing Day, I'd like readers to catch
those.

Tell you what: I know you're on Betty's announcement list on facebook.
I'll send out a general announcement from there within the hour, and
message you there that I've done so. If you can "Share" that message
with your (probably hundreds of) friends over there, that would be
most excellent.
