Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

There once was a rooster named Ricky
who demanded and got his own sticky
but his Rival in turn,
refused 'crash and burn'
and now he is taking the Mickey ...





come on guys, no way we can do it as great as LaManuka, but we can still have fun!


(We have this celebration/event called SinterKlaas, the small kids get presents from him at december the 5th instead of SantaClaus december 25 < yup similar names and all> they are usually accompanied with a simple rhyme, once you get older the presents get smaller and the rhymes more complicated and usually a bit satirical or just mildly teasing.. so every year we *have* to makes these things up. Not usually in lymerickform though, most of the time it is a simple A-A , B-B or A-B,B-A. Anyway lots of practise... rhyming stuff together )


Whooooohooo Rival strikes again!!!!
(sorry you were to fast for me!)

Who knew such a fuss
Could make such a ruckus
Shakespeare canít touch
The Rickeybird and his bunch
They have more plans I have a hunch

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates



The Rival does like to dress flashly,
But often is known to act rashly,
One night out of bed,
He fell on his head,
Which now is all squashed up and mashly

And Lord Jim, if you're still wondering, there's only one way this thing is going to end and that's BADLY

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Christa... now Rival is taking the Mickey???? He has gone off to church, but he informs me that, if he loses his place in the liturgy because he is composing a ribald limerick, he's ratting you out to the powers that be.

Lea... the roosters here like your style. Rival (my ol' man, actually, for you new readers) says you will be treated with deference when he kicks off his new kingdom.

LaManuka... you are a wizardess of limerickness. Were you aware of this gift before now? If not, the Scrapbook is proud to have unleashed you upon the Forums. Rival says his head is indeed mashly this morning, and he had wondered how that had happened.

I myself will require some more coffee, and possibly some leftover pizza (breakfast of champions here on the American North Coast) before I can muster further appreciations... *dabbing tears with pizza-smeared paper napkins*

Was just playing some catch-up, and LaManuka? These two posts have had me cracking up over here! A poet AND a comedian! Most impressive!

"Anaphylactic" trimeter! Hahahahaha! High comedy!

You are SO right Laurasea!

But really Gail and Rival are the true masters here - it takes everything I got just to try to keep up!

Honestly if I couldn't come here to get a Rickeybird fix every now and then I don't know where I'd be... it was a little green angel called Baci who led me here so you can thank (blame?) him... (mummy loves you baby)

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

From Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"
Romeo: But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

From GaleriaGila's "Rickeybird and LaManuka"
Rickeybird: But sweeet, what rhymes through yonder forum breaks? It is a limerick, and LaManuka is the hen.




I am somehow compelled to channel the Rickeybird.



Oh, Rickeybird!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

So the Rickeybird is penning romantic sonnets now? Or perhaps a loving haiku or two...?

“Moved by Rickeybird,
His plumage and rhymes sublime,
Love is essential”
