From the Vaults: Solo Flight

If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will not come back.

The sun might be shining in the most exquisite way,
But
If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will not come back.

You might have just won tattslotto,
scoring yourself a cool million,
But
If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will not come back.

You might have the sexiest thighs in the world,
But
If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will not come back.

Flowers might be blooming in the park.
Children might be running around in innocent bliss.
Dogs might be sniffing other dogs’ arses.
A complete stranger might come up to you
and tell you that she loves you,
But
If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will not come back.

If you throw the frisbee by yourself,
it will
not
come
back.

    Unless you are super-powered and it travels all the way around the earth. And hits you in the back of the head. Mwa

    But when the temps are mild
    And the air taste wild

    And the goose is flying high

    I’m gonna be where the winds not slack
    And all MY Frisbees come right back

    When the goose is flying high

    My apologies to the evil villain of the sand in “The Little Drummer Boy”

When I was a younger fella i put lots of swears in me poems... the lovely @benjamindodds scored some anticlinal poetry in the post this week. and so could you if you have a desire for geological poetry zines. just @ me and the magic will happen! "As part of the Warlords of Wor 5th Anniversary Collection, here comes ROCK GOLEM BOG-NAR! With his new IMPENETRABLE GREY GOLEM ARMOUR in place, thanks to his SUPERCHARGED EMERALD SWAMP-SPEAR, the malevolent muck-menace swirls his FOUR-BOULDER BOLO FIST overhead as he commands the very rocks and stones of the planet Wor to go forth and conquer!" #warlordsofwor #bognar "Just in time for the 5th anniversary of Warlords of Wor, here comes CLASSIC SWAMP ATTACK BOG-NAR! With his FOUR-FISTED SLIMEPACK mounted on his back and his MYSTICAL MUCK-SPEAR, the King of All Bogs has never been a more ominous opponent!"
