    As the principal speaker’s talk drones / on and on, in monotonous tones, / the large audience proved / they’re inert and unmoved. / More than half were the other half’s clones.

    The meeting was a huge embarrassment and should not have been held right after the big sale at Sam’s Suits.

    Everyone sat as still as possible, expressionless, and barely even breathing. The painter had spent many hours meticulously positioning everyone, and would spew torrents of loud, obscene invective if any person’s face should happen to, even slightly, overlap another.

    Men in Black

    When the “men of consequence” gather/ if nobody minds, I’d rather / be someplace with color/ – for what could be duller/ than blokes in black, battered by blather ?/// There’s not a rhetorical flourish/ which my starving soul ever could nourish/ half so well as the sight/ of a sprite in tight white / (without women, we might as well perish !)/// Send me not to those serried ranks/ (front and center, or out on the flanks)/ where the orator drones/ in stentorian tones../ would I choose to be present? No, thanks.

    “Now who can argue with that? I think we’re all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I’m particulary glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.”

    “We have gathered here today gentlemen, to decide what Miss Sarah there, can and cannot do with her body. Who has something to propose?”

    “SHE CAN RUB IT ON ME!”

    “Very well. What say you all to the suggestion that Miss Sarah be permitted to rub her body on me?”

    Julia was embarrassed by being the only unaccompanied woman in the room, while Bob, across the aisle, was hastily rereading his invitation to see where it said that black jackets were mandatory male attire.

    Dedicating the observatory, / Everett mesmerized folks with his story. / Widow Blandina Dudley, / knew her Charles was not cuddly, / but their name would be getting some glory.

    The drinks which the comp’ny delighted/ were delayed by the speaker – benighted./ He spoke loud, he spoke long/ but he read the room wrong../ he would never again be invited.

    And now a dediatory sonnet from our Poet Laureate Sir Henry Fustian"

    O That which from Elysian Dells

    Descending, wrapped in radiant spells

    Aloft, as if on pinions bright

    Nocturnal, and of night

    Imbued with glimmerings minuscule,

    Far flickering flames find Faith’s fair fuel,

    Still lambent through the crepuscule,

    Obdurate as the mule

    What indehiscent Polykarp

    Might adumbrate Angelic harp

    Strains o’er and o’er ‘ere interludes

    Of those untold vicissitudes

    Ecstatic rays emitting when

    Betwixt, below, above and then

    Beholden not, nor yet beheld,

    Endowed with scents as yet unsmelled

    Can maunder on without increase

    Or better yet could cease.

    May I present to you exhibit A, the hand that pushed poor unfortunate Ms. Penelope into the water, during this posthumous trial! Unfortunately, the perpetrator met her unfortunate demise due to not being properly fed.
