The Quabs, At Last, Respond!

Hitana! Oh voluminous writer of Quabbish poetics! You are adored most superlatively! The quabs, so long now without rhyme or reason -- clack their claws at thee, most appreciatively! Poet of exoskeleton and pinnailed eyeball! Wondrous wordspinner of clackity-clack! On our tripod legs we rise; without opposable thumbs, or indeed correct spelling, we nevertheless praise thee from the outside in.

Quabs in favour of poetry about ourselves.
QIFOPAO!
Rise!
All praise the prowess of our laureate Hitana!


(delivered by hand, including working thumbs, to nerfy!)

Squish!

I would love to float in the water
and stare at the fake sky forever.
Alas, I cannot
Ouch!
Stop pinching me you stupid quab!

I wrote a haiku about you
Then it got wet... oops.

KT and pokemon - thank you for feeding the thread!

The thread would like to let you know that it was contemplating retirement. Some time ago, it looked in the mirror and felt that the skin under its chin was sagging a little, and that it didn't much like the look of its knees. It spent the last few months looking out the window and wondering why the train doesn't come by anymore. Just the other week, it starting complaining over and over about "them kids", and refused to eat its lime jello.

But then, there you came, whizzing through the door with your Poetry on Wheels, and it perked right up, figured it would take off its stained track pants, got a haircut and watered the plant.

Thanks for keeping an old thread alive!

You rock!

squish!
nerfy

If you haven't solved Ahnonay yet, this might contain spoilers...

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Vortex Vapor Vacuum Void

The water flows, it guards the isle of rock,
Ending in a pool, where I, and others, like to swim.
Has always been a home to quabs, which flock,
not useful, makes their fate, as destined, grim.

Yet compare them to crystal, clad in Mist!
Been pleasant companions, would dare not shatter!
Written fragile, defect trees will not be missed.
And after silly things are gone? Much better.

I stare now, silent; Awe in view of space,
Hope safety, not cruel death awaits out there.
It surely will bewitch my sense and gaze,
Never just believe, use mind instead and care.

Will see the path of truth, will find the ride.
Be thorough, patient, diligent; No pride.


This is the first time I tried writing poetry in English and I'm not certain I want to do it again, grueling experience :-P

Dear RobertKosten
An ailing thread extends its thanks to you as well. It is indeed a gruelling experience attempting to match the highest lows that this thread has managed to reach in the past, but you are well on your way to the very top of the bottom! Congrats! As to spoilers, I don't think there is a single thing about Ahnonay that hasn't been spoiled, some may even say ruined, by this thread.

We look forward to more of the same!

squish!
nerfy

Is it just me or did I sense some Yodaism in Roberts Poem? Surely that's a lovely touch to the worst of the worst.

As for the others: I as well like to thank you for still poking the quabs, ninging the trees and fuzzing up the water!

And now without further ado..:

Quabs first pink is bright,
It's hardest task the flight,
It's early legs a grace,
But only till seeing explorers face,
Then going on a leave
The quab sank very tief
Then ninging down the tree
Nothing alive to see!

With apologies to Robert Frost...

Oh Noble Thread

Page 6! I cannot believe it
The mind numbs
And years thumb the nose

Also 3 login attempts
All seemingly successful
What a sting!

Oh noble thread
A hiss of breath
You live!

Oh, wait, no
that was just the
sound of bicycle tires
deflating

I must have gained weight
These vereniki are delicious
But mostly starchy

I must get a new patch
which is costly
Poetic justice

Inflated tires
And the tenge keeps rising
My salary only goes so far

Dear Ahnohnay
Your multiple computations
Seem so simple now.


A new Noku by Nyrphame.
