Light Poetry

When Spammers attack our Dear Forum

We used to just try and Ignore 'um

Now we mark them as Spam

'Cause they don't give a Damn

About Wrecking our Peaceful Decorum

 

 Our Forum The Spammers did Crumble

Our Threads they became all Ajumble

Then sb The Great

Decided their Fate

And reduced their Loud Roar to a Mumble

 

So it Seems that our AntiSpam works

And we Got Rid of Paisley ! Those Jerks !

So Now we can Post

About What we Love Most

Without Fear of The Spammer That Lurks

 

What I do

I nominate jacktheclipper as the BLF Poet Laureate at large.  Foy as the alternate in case something happens to jack.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

YES !!! You are hereby commissioned  to put to print the "ode to the flashlight!" Get to work. It shall be your "finest" hour. It shall garner fame "worldwide" which will lead to greater things..........guest on talk shows, contracts, fame and fortune (or maybe just a cool poem). You can do this!

An Ode to a Flashlight

 

In the Dark , With Nothing to Guide Me

I Get a Bad Feeling Inside Me

Yet I Don't Fear The Night

With my Trusted Flashlight

When it's Glowing So Brightly Beside Me

 

I Wish it was Dark All the Time

When the Sun Sets , my Spirits , They Climb !

Then I Take my Light Out

And I Shine it About

And the Feeling I Get is Sublime

 

Now I Want to Be Perfectly Clear

Out Of all of the Things I Hold Dear

My Flashlight's the Thing

That Makes my Heart Sing

And Fills up My Soul With Good Cheer

 

 

What I do

I love it!   

Now all we need is music to go with it and we have our own anthem.

A cheap flashlight, when done right, is better.

Nice job jack. I love limericks, though most of the ones I know are not suited for this family forum.

Can I play?

 

We ran all the spammers away

For this, I must say hooray

I raise up my glass

'Cause we kicked their a@@

And I hope that it lasts past today

Very nicely done.

I once met a man from Nantucket....let's just say the reports are greatly exaggerated.

A rhymer we have, he is Jack (the clipper)

A limerick he makes very fast (none quicker)

A new member logs on

And Jack rips off a song

A wel-come-wag-on? (send-it-back)

 

Chicago X, he has a lathe (just got it)

Greased Lightning, he plays with some days (Dry got it)

He bead blasts a torch

Was a Solar-force

That flashlight is phat? (I would say)

They did not see the fun that was in it

A prize for ill humor - they'd win it

She said " My name is Greta , and Mister you'd better

A fellow named Jack the Clipper

(Don't confuse him with Jack the Ripper)

Had so many lights

That they kept him up nights

Trying to shine the Big Dipper

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

We have many shills on the forum

There aren't many here who adore them

It's what they do best

To bother the rest

of the members who'd rather destroy them.

-------------------------------------------------

My Solarforce crew is enormous

From weak to the brightest performer

L2P is the bomb

My M8 is real long

But a 502B is a boner.

-------------------------

I like Shadow flashlights, I do

My JM07 is new

It likes a King Kong

That lasts all the night long

Big ass monkey name, it is too cool.

Careful , though , it's addictive .

I limericked a couple of customers today , and they loved it .

Not the sort of encouragement I really need , because it will just throw gas on the fire.

 

I have always loved a good joke

And my friends I just can't help but poke

Now I sit and I rhyme

Nearly all of the time

Knowing all the good poets died broke

We Love Lumens and Lux

We Know Dimmer Light Sucks

A Flood or a Spot

They all get us hot

We just gotta find the Bucks

Keith says that he can't write a rhyme
He knows 'cause he tried it one time 
He got so frustrated
Himself he berated
For creating a limerical crime

But old Keith was too busy to rhyme

He said "Sorry, I don't have the time"

But his buddiesl persuaded

And he became accoladed

For his efforts turned out just sublime! H)

 

In fact Keith wasn't just good, he was great!

And BLF-ers could hardly wait

For the next lovely poem

That Keith wanted to show 'em

But on Jack it was starting to grate! Frown

 

"Who's this Keith?!" asked Jack in a temper

"I'M the poet round here, just remember!

Keith couldn't out-rhyme me

Just you wait and see

If I gave him from now till December!" Silly

 

Now, Keith heard of Jack's challenge and smiled

"It'll be like taking candy away from a child!"

"Oh yeah?" snarled Jack

"You bet!" Keith sneered back

You can tell, they were both pretty wild! |(

 

But at this point sb interjected

He'd been watching, as might be expected

"Now look, gentlemen

Just shake hands and be friends!"

A suggestion that both men accepted Smile

 

Said Jack "How about we collaborate?

Nothing too big or elaborate"

Keith said "Shake my hand

Before we get banned!"

And they both settled down to confabulate Love

 

Their work was so good that it sold

They were literally rolling in gold! Cash

Budget lights began to bore 'em

So they joined CandlePowerForums

And their Sipiks began to grow mold Cry

 

At first Jack and Keith both felt better

They bought Surefires, and a pair of Elzettas

But their joy didn't last

'Cause they couldn't hide their past

And they drew the attention of Greta! J)

 

It began quite innocently one day

When one of them linked to a SkyRay Shocked

Down came a mod

Who thought he was god

And turned our boys' blue skies to gray

 

"We're sorry!" they said, very contrite

"Our offense was ever so slight!"

"You question my law?!"

Gasped Greta in awe

"Banned for life! Get out of my sight!" Yell

 

"CPF is just horrid!" said Jack

Keith agreed, "And the future looks black!

I preferred BLF

We should never have left

I really think we should go back!"Innocent

 

So they logged in, and with great delight

Followed O-L as he modded a Maglite

ILF was still splurging

"Buy A SF!" Foy was urging

Ah, the lovely familiar old site!Cool

 

They agreed that here they'd remain

And that to leave BLF was insane!

"Here's where we belong!"

"Hey, that would make a great song!"

Now lads, let's not go there again.. Wink
