There’s grumbling down in Piney Flats:
“Whence came all these M.T. gits?
Why make us look a bunch of prats,
And joke about our slivovitz?”

Muttering, "The drink in Piney Flats
we sip all night (as time permits),
with dinner, breakfast, midday chats:
it's not a joke, our slivovitz!"

(Pretend this post is one earlier, okay? ^^)

The internet came to Piney Flats
and across the MT forums they did click,
in shock and anger they spat
spraying their screens with slivovitz!

"Smurd's head on a pike!" went the call
"Teach him to mock our slivovitz!
Trace his packets, trace them all!
Find him through all the IP bits!"

The town was as angry as wet cats.
They marched and called smurd a twit,
they marched and waved their bats,
they marched and drank slivovitz.

The anger did rise in Piney Flats,
but it can't outlive the slivovitz.
Back they headed to the vats
only to find empty, empty pits.

The rats did drink all the slivovitz!
The town had to quickly fix the vats,
they had no time to waste on twits
so smurd was spared the wrath of Piney Flats!

(My apologies to English majors everywhere...)

There is in the town of Piney Flats,
a ledgend fit to give you fits,
of vam'pire tiny, spiney bats,
that seek not blood, but Slivovitz!

There are exams in Piney Flats
The students there with zany zits
Are tested on, by barmy bats
The brewing of good slivovitz

The vats they boil, the little things
They pour into the slivovitz
Are papers, books, and even rings
For some, not healthy, also nits

For those who fail the brewing test
And cannot make good slivovitz
They are exiled, and sent off West
Or even worse, they join the Brits

For those who pass, the praise abounds
A party thrown, inside the Ritz
The students, now all wearing gowns
Pass out their new-brewed slivovitz

They've graduated, joined the ranks
Of a town containing many twits
In ceremony, they give thanks
For a drink as great as slivovitz

Apologies to anybody English. We really should set up more 'random verse' threads like this one. Oh yes, just got back from LotR - go see it, everybody! It's great!

The it's cold down there in Piney Flats!
The kids all wear their wollen mitts
And toques (the famous pom-pom hats),
But nothing warms like slivovitz!

Before more verse on Piney Flats,
I pause, because, it's Friday; it's
The time for one more chore, and that's
To buy myself some slivovitz.

Not slivovitz from Piney Flats?!
Won't Piney Flats convulse with fits?
And tear their kilts? Take up their bats,
Because I've spurned their slivovitz?

I bear no ill towards Piney Flats!
I cannot make my booze from kits --
Montgom'ry County Liquors: that's
Whence I must go for slivovitz.

Thinking now of Piney Flats,
I strain the chunks through homemade slits
And find I miss the spiny bats;
I drink inferior slivovitz.

Some visitors to Piney Flats:
The learned Rabbis Bruskowicz!*
They're making sure it's kosher: that's
The way it is with slivovitz.**

The good rabbis at Piney Flats:
Each takes a sip, and swirls, and spits.
"Gentlemen, we doff our hats!
You make a sterling slivovitz!"

* Any resemblance to persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
** Yes, slivovitz has to be kosher, or it ain't slivovitz. In all deference, the principles of kosher (and the very similar Muslim halal) are ancient forms of quality control and are not to be taken lightly.

Ever have genuine schnapps? Not that peppermint-flavored abomination, but a clear, powerful brandy distilled from fruit; it's very similar. My fave is Himbeergeist, distilled from raspberries. (Slivovitz is distilled from plums.)

The citizens of Piney Flats,
They sit upon their bums,
Gaze idly at their suits and spats,
And drink brandy made from plums.

Whilst drinking their beloved slivovitz,
They ponder things absurd,
Like silly cures for zany zits,
And the many deaths of Smurd.

The citizens of Piney Flats
We mock an awful lot.
But, people who can vanquish spiney bats
Be trifled with should not.

The citizens of Piney Flats,
With valor great indeed,
Run screaming from the spiney bats,
At full and frightened speed.

So much for the folks of Piney Flats
Escaping all our mocking jibes.
But, they don't care, since the spiney bats
Are starting to form tribes!
***

I can't believe it took me this long to discover this thread. I love it. happy.gif Great work, everybody! Especially you, Smurd.


PS- "Beloved" is three syllables in this verse.

Today I'm visiting relatives in Waynesboro, Virginia, a little town in the Shenandoah Valley that's like... like Piney Flats; they have their pits, and fatty bits, and they have folks what sits and spits; and no, they don't have slivovitz. Oh, O.K., no spiny bats either, although they do have tiny bats.

I'll not be going by Piney Flats
This Yuletide season. Home I sits;
I've mothballed my suit and spats;
I'm stuck with third-rate slivovitz.

But... Season's best to Piney Flats!
And to all my fellow M.T. twits; *
Such riotous verse! I think that that's
Much finer than fine slivovitz!

* Poetic license. For all those contributing verse of any kind, be they brand new to this or old experienced hands, there are truly no twits amongst us. Thanks to everyone who's contributed or left comments, thanks very much, I enjoy it all, more than you realize.

Creating something from nothing, using the basic tool of language, is a good thing. It keeps one's brain buff and one's soul supple. Speaking personally, it gets me through life's weird patches even better than the slivovitz.

To all the poets and poet-wannabees, all the forum readers, Fred, Rodney, ladies and gentlemen: Have a wonderful holiday.

Happy holidays to Piney Flats,
That noble little town
With folks bedecked in suits and spats,
To festive meals a-sittin' down.

Season's best to Piney Flats
All aglow with winter cheer.
Drink and be merry, Piney Flats,
Slivovitz kicks the arse of beer.

When Santa comes to Piney Flats
He hands out toys, and treats, and kits
He gives the children stocking hats
And gives their parents slivovitz.

Or else, in years less full of cheer
He storms into the drug markets (sorry)
Ignores the milk and juice and beer
And raids the stores of slivovitz!

To everyone in Piney Flats,
Old, young, and wise, and on the fritz,
I wish you this, and tip my hat:
Have comfort, joy, and slivovitz!

(and now the nonYuletide batch)

Composers live in Piney Flats!
They pine away in aural fits
With piney sharps and piney flats,
Inspired by their slivovitz.

You may play ball in Piney Flats,
Or watch those munchkins play with mitts,
And chase their friends with wooden bats,
And share their parent's slivovitz!

Young couples there in Piney Flats
Will get eachother into snits,
But soon forget their little spats,
And make up over slivovitz.

Soon churchbells ring in Piney Flats;
Announce impending wedded bliss!
The wedding party wear silk hats,
And mix champaigne and slivovitz.

Not Bedford Falls, but Piney Flats;
Not factories, but vats and pits.
Not ZuZu's petals -- spiny bats;
Not Martinis -- slivovitz!

When visiting fair Piney Flats,
About you you must keep your wits;
It's hard to do, I know, but that's
The price for drinking slivovitz!

In far Piney Flats, they grow lucious poTAHtoes
which fermented, produce a fine alcohol.
Combined with imported russian toMAHtoes,
to make bloody slivovitz drinks for us all.

Oops, it's not vodka they make in that town
the finest of plums they grow there with care.
Fermented, distilled to a brandy renowned:
the infamous slivovitz they produce there.

Stolichnaya's not slivovitz; what was I thinking,
to make jest in a previous ill-thought out verse?
Perhaps I can blame on holiday drinking,
the bane of all poets (and Piney Flat's curse).

On holiday in Piney Flats
they sits and drinks and lose their wits
and sets their watches back, and that's
another day of slivovitz!

(On Piney Flats Day Piney Flats
they celebrates in warm outfits
and shouts in clouds of steam, and claps
"It's Piney Day with slivovitz!")

A belfry stands in Piney Flats,
A roost of Spiny Bats there sits
And looks out through the tiny slats
'Tween which a Spine-Bat snugly fits.

From up on high the Spiny Bats
All watch betwixt the tiny slits
And cast about for men in spatz
Who check the vats for fatty bits.

"The coast is clear!" proclaim the bats,
And out their number duly flits
To sup from the unguarded vats
Of sweet, beguiling Slivovitz.

[!verse] Congrats Smurd and everyone - another splendid thread... [/!verse]

With "auld acquaintance" long forgot
And never brought to mind
We'll tak' a jug 'o slivovitz,
And leave our wits behind!

...
"The day after" in Piney Flats:
The citizens are on the fritz
(They're hiding from the spiny bats)
And everything smells of slivovitz...

[!Piney_Flats]
A sincere, heartfelt, and noncynical wish for a wonderful New Year, everyone, especially those who participate in and read the poetry posts. You do This Olde Farte a great favor. Kyou ga shin nen!
