I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.

Haha

I can't write poetry
to save my life
But my cousin Melba
a moose of distinction
is poetry in motion
and Jeb's wonderful wife

We wanna be free. We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. And we wanna play games. And we wanna have a good time. And that's what we're gonna do. We're gonna have a good time; We're gonna have a party...

A generous thumber and all-around nice fellow,
He greets animals, not with a fork but with a hello
Even us meat eaters are shown some love
Orangemoose is as wise as a serpent but as harmless as a dove!

"Board Game Related"


I'll always love my gamer wife.
She always wins at every game,
But this will never bring us strife.
I'll always love my gamer wife.

She'll likely beat me all my life
At every contest. Just the same,
I'll always love my gamer wife.
She always wins, at every game.


Inspired by Andy's microbadges.

“A meditation on all the kitty love”

The noble moose stands tall and proud
And he stands alone
Though by his size he seems a crowd.
The noble moose stands tall and proud
And, despite his antlers’ weight, unbowed.
Where weaker beasts would bend and moan
The noble moose stands tall and proud
And he stands alone.

“A fantasy (but not my fantasy)”

Approach ye not the mighty moose
While he in rampant glory stands
For he with lust will you seduce

Watch! Just wait like Winter’s spruce
Make no move in Spring, stand still and
Approach ye not the mighty moose

More tightly than the hangman’s noose
Will he grope with beastly hands
For he with lust will you seduce

To come too close, such sweet abuse
To be in lust’s unbreaking bands:
Approach ye not the mighty moose

His bed of verdant green chartreuse
Beware those rolling languid lands—
For he with lust will you seduce!

Such earthly pleasure will he produce
While his mighty lust expands
Approach ye not the mighty moose
For he with lust will you seduce


(If this bears any relationship to reality I am quite happy to go the rest of my life without Mrs Orangemoose confirming that fact.)

12 inches tall? 12 degrees centigrade on the outside? A badly named science fiction character where numbers have replaced names as some kind of commentary on the depersonalisation of dystopic future science? Surely not 12 years old since there is a minimum age to sign up at BGG. devil

Edit: grammar.

Thanks. Repressive Internet laws in this country are throwing us further back into the second world and even before that I wasn't keeping up with the latest fads, even if that one appears to be a couple of years old at least. Completely didn't know it existed.

I'm originally from Iowa. Does that make rhyming easier?

He games with his wife
Because they're best with two.
For all of his life,
He games with his wife
For all of his life,
He'll have something to do.
He games with his wife
Because they're best with two.
