I must go down to the 'ry again, to the home of the bone and the bun,
And all I ask is a new idear, and the chance for a bit o' fun,
And the Panic Pin, and the Film Noir Home, and the cry of a newbie's raking,
And the puzzled crease on csea's face, and the bustle of bakers baking.

I must go down to the 'ry again, for the call of the Hullaballoon
Grips me like the Sonic Varminter with Unabubba Collimator's croon;
And all I ask is a half-baked thought, or a vision not too blurry,
And a fresh croissant, or a fishless bone, and a bowl of Half Bay Curry.

I must go down to the 'ry again, to try my hand at baking,
To the siren sound where ideas bound, where trolls are left a-quaking:
And all I ask is to join with thee and keep the 'ry free of ranting,
And allowed therefore to be proud once more of Pyrotechnic Planting.

shameless self-promotion [csea, Nov 16 2004]


       I'll admit to this being mostly a vehicle for the possibly bad pun "Half Bay Curry" - but how could this have been missed for all these years? (Or maybe it's been emeffdeed on previous attempts!?)   

       I awoke one day with the phrase in my mind, and could not get it out until I penned this piece of doggerel - thanks for your understanding.

       Notes on performance:   

       Of course "Sonic Varminter with Unabubba Collimator" doesn't scan; but it is one of my favorite ideas, and I had in mind a delivery similar to many an Ogden Nash poem, which often have too many syllables.

       Catchy...+, and I don't usually like songs, cept bubbalyrics.
