....Of Cabbages and Kings
“The time has come,” the Angel said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships – and sealing-wax –
Of cabbages – and kings –
And why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings.”
“But wait a bit,” ATS'ers cried,
“Before we have our chat;
For some of us are hungover,
And some of us are flat!”
“No hurry!” said the Truth.
I have a thread for that!
“Black pudding,” the cody said,
“Is what we chiefly need"
"Tea and coffee too"
NightStar added to that.
"Now if you're ready ATS'ers dear,
We can begin to feed.”
The Angel said "let's sup a while
And rest our weary heads
For we have travelled
With love and laughter
Song and dance
And written many a chapter.
“It was so kind of you to come!
And you are all so very nice!"
The Angel smiled and said
“Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf –
I've had to ask you twice!”
“It seems a shame,” the Angel said,
“To play them such a trick,
But I have brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!”
Tsu said nothing but
“The butter's spread too thick!”
“I love you all,” the Angel said.
“I deeply empathize.”
With sobs and tears she sorted out
Those U2U's of surprise.
Holding her pocket handkerchief
Before her streaming eyes.
“O ATS'ers,” said the Angel.
“You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?”
But answer came there none –
And that was scarcely odd, because
The Rainbows were all done.
