The Raving (Part 2)

September 22, 2005 | 6 Comments

Next to “give,” the miser Mijae, younger but not wiser, she’d pay
More to sip upon a latte than to the depise’ed poor;
Broke her piggy bank for pennies, didn’t dig too deep for many,
So damn cheap, she begged advice from anyone she could implore
Sadly peeped, “who’ll match my five, relieve me from this awful chore?”
Quoth the Raving, “Grocery Store.”

[Pathetic as she is, I’m not done with her yet.]
[Part 1 here.]

    Once upon a morning dreary, reading at a godless blog, she
    Read a thing so pain-inducing she fell down wailing on the floor
    What, she wondered, could be meaner than these lines of stolen meter
    Driving every raving reader from the mentioned godless blog?
    Driving them like Freud’s complexes out their burning eyes to gore?
    Quoth Viole, “Please not more!”

    Sorry, RA, I had to. You really aren’t doing that bad.

    It’s time someone told America, with all due respect, that Mr. E.A. Poe is in fact a crap poet.

    Sorry about this, but I felt you should know.


    P.S.: It’s MxyzPTlk, I think you’ll find.

    PPS: Er. Hmm. Actually, on closer inspection, the situation appears more complex:

    Of course he’s a crap poet. But he’s a moody, gothic, easily-accessible crap poet, which accounts for his continued popularity.

    Hey, Raving,
    My friend is hosting a Rita Party tomorrow night. INhonor of some of her family coming up from Houston to stay a while, we’ll be making and selling cheap frozen margaritas. All proceeds will be donated (to the Knights of Columbus, since they’re matching donations right now). We’ll also be collecting clothing and houseware donations for recent relocations. And there will be frosted cookies with pictures of the Doppler radar hurricane in sprinkles on the tops.

    Should be a blast.

    Well, I certainly hope Rita doesn’t fizzle out and ruin everything. Let’s pray that it goes Category 6!

    Where is “up from Houston?” Oklahoma?

    Up from Houston is Dallas.

    And Rita fizzling would ruin nothing. She’d still sound like a good excuse to drink, even if she were just a thunderhead.

    Besides, the cash will be collected in the Katrita Relieta Donation Hat, so it applies to both hurricanes. But Katrina doesn’t have a connection to booze, and none of us knows how to make a hurricane (nor do we have any of the glasses).
