Whip Smart-y pants

Post by murmac » Fri Mar 27, 2020 1:38 am

Antsy for my Francy freedom.
Wham, Lorne’s ham was a slam, dunk.
Just go there, if you dare, fare?
Trunk, thunk, I sunk with a funk.

Space traveller, Face traveller.
My scheme is a dream.
Burning Sun, burning love.
Thy tongue doth speak truth?

The Elders seldom reveal the Peel.
Mississauga wanna be the saga.
Between the Liz Chic and Mansions.
I’m no nerd, I’m a bird.

Well it's different for this site, It clips along at pace. It sounds like fun and people say it is fun. No idea what it is about, not sure if it matters.

Lorne’s ham refers to Lorne Greene’s Green Eggs and Ham. Just go there, if you dare refers to my personal experience of going to Hollywood, parking my car, and stepping out onto Lorne Greene’s Star on Vine Street. The rest of it is a mixture of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir, Ontario (Canada), Liz Phair being from Chicago and hopefully some poetic verve.

The title is from Liz Phair’s hit album.

I introduced myself a little. Do you see the message?

OK, I see it now in a different section.

Clever set of links then. I'll have to beef up on them. Lorne Greene, wasn't that Bonanza? hanks for the explanation though, as I was lost.

Yes, Lorne Greene was in Bonanza. He was also known as the Voice of Doom in Canada on Radio. His deep, resonant voice really matched his assignment of reading the dreaded list of soldiers killed in WW2. Since I am Canadian, I felt at the time, it was good I saw his Star first.
