Maryon Wants Me To Write Edgy


Maryon wants me to write edgy

A challenge I cannot refuse

WOLers know I'm not a challenge back-downer

On ones that I know I can't lose


Maryon would like me to write edgy

To which I say shit! you tempt fate

Now fate was against me the last time

Got booted, but will oblige this time mate


Maryon's patiently waiting

Waiting in wings, bate-ing breath

So what can I concoct to excite him

Ensure edginess, not cause my death


He continues, asks, “please Don write edgy”

(Perhaps I could form Edgy Club?)

I'm gonna have to edge up my rhyming

To more than just rub-a-dub-dub


I did fleet a thought, maybe temple?

'The Temple of WOL Edginess'

But Club has a more clubby feeling

While temples fall down in a mess


Desirous of pleasing edge readers

I'll enter my edge-writing mode

And post up some eye-popping rhyming

But still within WOL's moral code


This isn't my planned edgy poem

Just preparing myself, warming up

I want Maryon to stay screen-glued

And waiting for when I do serve edge up


(He's gonna have to wait...screen-glued)

Maryon is our new guy
Life of Brian passe
Scary picture shows us
He's not here for child's play

Brian sounds insipid
For use in edgy poem
Maryon the scary one's
Come back, come back to show 'em

MC I didn't want to
Give Maryon swell head
Bring aristocracy into it
Refer him 'Sir' instead

Maryon I am afraid
You just can't just can't win
Fish is kicking kicking up
Kicking up a din

And I'm listening....?

Come on Don! You can do it!
Take your courage and up screw it.
Push that envelope to the brink,
Over the edge, into the sink.
Pushit down the drain
Then suck it up and push it again.

Be a man! Talk Anglo-saxon!
It's easy just let your tongue run.
Stoke up your anger. Throw a tantrum.
Kicking shins is such great fun.

Edgy! Edgy! Edgy! Go! Go! Go!
Come on Don, join the show.
Edge loving lemmings get in the flow
And to the edge go, go ,go.

Seriously Don - don't take the bait mate! Be free, be wise, be kind and keep creating. ><>

Don't forget what happens when you go 'over the edge' - six weeks of 'One Finger Poems' and mushy mushy.
Mmmm! - maybe that was a different sort of edge

Ah...I've had comments in which I have been addressed by my
last name only. But no complaint...remembering that it is the
custom among the aristocracy to expect to be addressed in that
manner. ?

Hi Don - as till laughing! Going 'edge' and being nice aren't compatible i would have said.

If he wants you to edge
he can jump in a hedge
Did he go to a Colledge?

Just joking!!!!!!

Well, the green shoots of edginess are there Don....the switch to referring to me by my surname.
