I'm Back

Written by: Peter Dorr


                I'm back without a fanfare without a flash 

                and you know in your heart by your hearths  

                that missing me is no laugh so don't pretend 

                to dis me my sisters and brothers of the Muse 

                only Christmas or the New Year could assuage 

                your sighs your annoyance at being bereft of wit 

                and poesy just like that other Bard by a river as 

                well so next time you see one of mine you will 

                either ignore it as no superlative is so apt, or 

                your judgements as before ere on the side of 

                so faint a praise as your green eyed monster 

                cannot help but display but be as it may I will 

                will not ignore all cliches today I sincerely folks 

                wish you all happy  emulation and if you are 

                offended please don't blame me its that Muse 

                Thalia who came to tea and then seduced me.
