Ode To Glenn Reynolds

What, you want ME to write a poem, Alliance. Well, okay! (Obnoxiousness and bad poetry warning.)

Ode To Glenn Reynolds

If only I
could summon nimble
words to pluck away thyne pups
before you siphon vitals from their wares.

A listless sigh escapes its
sound. It queries not a dogged
paw - a fading yelp.

Clouded sky erupts!
A lightning bolt askew
might frighten off a gnu
and separate your pup from you
(and leave you shaking sad and blue)
So true. So...true.

Still now. The blender whirs its final sound.
A rapture grasp'd in canine breath.
Escapes his sure intended death.

The blender now holds crystal meth?

Nay, a false alarm most fit to
stop a fiendish scam - exposed
this lawyer as a man whose penguins
were his biggest fan. Who
blends your puppies 'cause he can.

So on this chosen solemn date let
InstaPundit's newest fate be
Something dressed in utter hate (for
Father Time is drawing late). Such wrath'd
befall a solemn state whose blighted
fortress shared its fate and
Richard Simmons watched his weight
(For surely you must not berate the
kindred folks who guard your gate)


Uh, I think I'm done.

I think the best line is "Who Let the Dogs Out Woof Woof". I generally wonder when Glen is going to have to work for a living. Not that I hate him or anything, but I want something fun to be popular. His site puts me sleep. Am I a bad man?

That's either terribly brilliant, or brilliantly terrible... I'm still deciding...

Either way, color me terribly amused :-)

Two words: William McGonagall.
I hope Glenn archives your ode for his grandchildren.
Color me giggling.

Hey, now. I wouldn't stoop to end rhyme even in a poem as obnoxiously, intentionally bad as this!

Awesome or Aweful? I haven't decided yet, but htat was an outstanding effort!

I'm in awe. That was pretty funny, and well done.

All yours?

It emerged from the same strange recesses of my mind that brought the world this (though it's only half mine).
