The Night Riders of the Hubpages .......

Cyber Justice !

They road hard and fast through everything ...........The Hub riders , the ever righteous men and women , policing of all of the wrongs in this great , this vast and wicked cyber war desert. Dusty , dirty , tired beyond all fatigue ........but yet , they rode on into the darkest night.. Each of them armed to the teeth , gleaming swords dangling from dusty belts , Colt six guns with ivory handled grips , they rode .........and they rode . From each horseback the reflections of laptops with siver conches , gold inlays' and blue hazes glowing around the manes of the beautiful stallions . The cloud of dust that rose into the dry desert air contained the slightest scent of perfume from the tied back hair of beautiful hubber ladies dressed in black leather tights ........but not too tight , and around them like the protective warriors they are............ them ! The real men of hubs ! And yet ALL of them rode on as one . The hubriders..................

Now though in the rainbow colored skies of dawn ........ each of them stood side by side and as that sun that welcomes the day began its own journey ......... yet even the sun following the Hubriders , because of the hard endless ride, seemed surprised at what awaited its own dawn! Old sol'...... too stood , seemingly motionless as the one thing that even the new day awaits, began its awful and yet somehow righteous path...........a vigilante hanging ...........at the base of the one still standing oak tree , and how symbolic that oak tree is ! Like the very soul of the hubriders themselves. .

A cyber hanging ! The once arch- villain ' Bigezine' stood ! head hanging low down .......it's networks tied behind its tricky but boisterous backside .........Its own glow ....somehow dimminished ! And yet ...... as there is no pride in even the do gooders work , stood the awesome and inspiring leader of the "HubRiders " herself ..........or himself , for no one knew for sure , stood the carefully masked rider of justice .........one hand on the noose , and on on the keyboard of the built in laptop on the back of the white stallion ......... And everyone waited for the words that would come .........

" I never meant to hurt another writer , I really only wanted some cyber attention for myself .....said the bigezine " thief , his shifty eye's glittered with a red glow ........." IT's true .....I only envied the style of real creativity , .....the awesome respect that you hubbers have for each other "..........and as he grinned , he dropped his head one more time ........

But the hubriders are never fooled by the deft hands of plagiarism , never conned by the sneaky likes of the dastardly bigezine bullies . No ......not once were they fooled ....for each of them had paid dearly for the talents stolen right in broad daylight ! Right from the very mouthes of the hungrey hub kids they stole !

And. then ......... just as the warming sun peeked over the high desert plains and the dust devils began a day of playing , twisting and turning across the buttes and aroyos ,
a lone coyote howled , as if he too [or she ] wanted in on the final act ..........the final act of justice delivered from the hands of the Hub team.......the writers and riders both .......of the long night !........Just as the rope began to tighten alarmingly around the nect of Bigezine ! And just as the limb of the old oak tree began to take on the weight of the worn old manilla rope .......The leader of the hubriders slapped the rear end of the Bigs' horse .................the rope straightened ....... the horse reared up , kicking its front hooves out as if to take flight .........




To be continued at a later time......

AHB!!

LHM!!! (That's Bishop-Speak for Lord Have Mercy!)

I'll have you know, Sir, you MUST finish this!!

In the reading of this masterpiece of epic justice, I have laughed so hard I've fallen off my ball (the big blue exercise ball I sit on while at my desk, to keep me busy while I'm busy), and have crashed my nose into the floor and subsequently sustained multiple contusions!

I also believe I've separated three ribs from the ensuing laughter choked by tears of pain!!

This is the funniest, flipping thing I've ever read in the entirety of Hubdom!

Gold stars across the board and High-Freaking-Five!!

After all that, you can't stop now and leave your Hub-Brigade hanging, 'cause that's reserved for the Big-Ezee-across-the-seazee, yes?

While I wait for the follow up, I'm gonna need a medic ...

You have outdone even yourself here ahorseback! I was laughing all the way through this seriously comic telling of the bigezine's comeuppance at the hands of vengeful. I was wondering what your thoughts were about this breach of copyright law and simple ehtics, and there you were out in the corral channeling the Durango Kid. This is outstanding and Up all the way. (I'm sure you remember the Durango Kid, right?) (Shared too!)

Yes, yes, yes. Let them swing . for justice comes to all that break the rules with impunity, let all know the law of retribution that rules the land within the cyber community of trust.

I hope it's really true, and the plagiarist gets caught and stopped cold. (Not hung, not REALLY! Just stopped. I hate worrying about sh*t like that.)

Xstatic , I'm sure you know that as a poet we are the least known of writers , so our "art" can be stolen easily and Hubpages should do something about this too , After all they are making money from yours and my writing !. In some twisted way I suppose we should be flattered. But I say hang high anyway . Thank you for sharing this as always !...Ed
