a parody of an old song
One fine day, as I was searchin' for my Muse,
the Storymaster wrote some code that he could use
to build a sanctuary for writers,
so we could tarry and pull all-nighters,
trying to light the creative fuse.


         May the goblins of gab ignite your conflagration
         with a gallon of pyrotechnic inspiration.
         May the witches brew a ton of titillation
         in the cauldron of your imagination.


The folks at Writer's Cramp will test our wits,
and Stormy Lady's words will give us fits,
but kansaspoet's ghost still lingers here
to make it absolutely clear
that quality counts in a poetry blitz.


         May the goblins of gab ignite your conflagration
         with a gallon of pyrotechnic inspiration.
         May the witches brew a ton of titillation
         in the cauldron of your imagination.


While the werewolves are howling at the moon
and graveyard residents moan their gruesome tune,
we'll write it all for posterity,
each and every monstrosity,
thanks to Storymaster's creative boon.


         May the goblins of gab ignite your conflagration
         with a gallon of pyrotechnic inspiration.
         May the witches brew a ton of titillation
         in the cauldron of your imagination.

Larry passed away on Nov. 23, 2009, but he is still remembered by many who knew him back then. Here is what he left us after returning from an absence due to illness: Lawrence
