“JB is the ruler of this place
Dig his rules or he’ll smash your elbow.”

Sorry, I am not allowed to confirm or deny that fact.

Yep,

I second the nomination for Jey to be Australia’s very own Poet lorikeet.

If Britain can have a Poet Laureate, we can have a Poet Lorikeet. I nominate Jey.

A poem by all RiotACTers, Maelinar said to write
start it off with the first line though, he said he would not;
So it fell to Jey to make the first lines rhyme,
But HER efforts are sadly those of a poet in decline.
Them came Hasdrubahl, schooled in North Africa,
But his verse is worse than a mouthful of paprika.
JB is the ruler of this place
Dig his rules or he’ll smash your elbow.
After a shady start, the poem did go,
and bring it into line, did Maelinar with prose,
…??
Terubo threw in some random punctuation,
trying to get it back on track.
But all were clicking elsewhere,
looking at the new shiny ads.

We need to build on this RA poem. So far, it goes like this:
A poem by all RiotACTers, Maelinar said to write
start it off with the first line though, he said he would not;
So it fell to Jey to make the first lines rhyme,
But HER efforts are sadly those of a poet in decline.

Let’s do a multi-disciplinary, multi-input poem from all RA’ers !

(I’m not going to start it with the first line though)
