He finally lost it, happens to the best of bad poets. Yep, sometime during the 1998 Bruzer's Poetry/Prose ratio swung heavily to the poetry side of the meter, almost singlehandedly keeping the list in bad poetry for several threads.

I do believe that the "agnus castus tree" is a latinized
mispronunciation of "the o(*&^%*s tree ate my backcast!!!" as in:
I cast the dry fly
heaven-wards towards the rise, but
agnus castus tree!!!

And then, inspired by the sadness of the spinner's fall, and broken body parts, I submit:
Murf broke the tails
no one knows it's name
bruzer - waxing (or is that waning?) philosophically

But, recalling a recent thread:
Catch broken mayfly
Superglue the parts back on
Tie it to a hook
bruzer, sadness past, now getting practical
>Catch broken mayfly
>Superglue the parts back on
>Tie it to a hook
which leads to:
Do the fish care much
taste of superglue and parts?
Take them on corn flies
Yellow husks and thread
just like ephemerella
easier to tie.

and I, with little or no ff content, say
Claude nicely reserves me a spot;
Lim'rick hell? I really think not.
Stuck @ five - seven - five
Is where I have to strive
FF haiku is all I've got.

Sons and Daughters of Dukabore
Their houses and others abhor
With no clothes, don't you know
Dance naked in the glow
I thought that's what Hades is for.
bruzer, don't blame me - Claude stuck me with this 8-8-6-6-8 affliction
