Call and Response: A Rolling Eye Gathers no Teeth

*****

(Though we hasten to affirm him as a most excellent man and mentor in — well, nearly — every other way, original first-gen Awesome Reader Family member Paul Vincent Cannon, or “pvcann” as he is known to his adoring readers and all the other ones as well, must be admitted to possess a sense of humor nearly as out-of-control, inapt, inept and generally inappropriate as is this poet’s own.

The combina — ah, collision — of the two, mid-Web, has been known to produce the type of distrous results to be discovered below)

Call by pvcann:

(Quotation included in recent poetry post “No Solution”)

“A shocking crime was committed on the unscrupulous initiative of few individuals, with the blessing of more, and amid the passive acquiescence of all.” – Tacitus –

Response by Ana:

Awesome quote, too!

*****

pv:

And to think how old that quote is, astounding.

*****

Ana:

Heeeey — some of us “oldies” are still “goodies’!

*****

pv:

Lol, yes indeed

*****

Ana:

Eh? Speak up, sonny, I don’t hear too good any more…

*****

pv:

Lol, hope your teeth are fine, my eyes are dim.

*****

Ana:

Just a minute, I’m trying to remember what a teeth is.

*****

pv:

Them bitey things.

*****

Ana:

Ohhhh… I DO remember them! Been a while since I had any. Last I saw of ’em, they were sett’n peacefully in their glass a’ water, just like every other dang night — only, when I got there in the mornin’ they had RUNNED OFF… If you see ’em go by, tell ’em I kinda miss ’em, every time I have to eat anything but oatmeal, and I hate oatmeal, so hurry home…

*****

pv:

Ah, yes, they just passed my rolling glass eye.

*****

Ana:

HATE when those things pop out! Hope it didn’t happen in front of company…

(Readers: Stay tuned — this poet can’t imagine more idiotic silliness NOT coming out of this increasingly unfortunate juxtaposition of two such– for lack of a better word — “wits”)

This poet is so poor that she can’t even pay proper attention. The littlest contribution, believe her, will be vastly appreciated —
