A Poem - Hub Junkies

Updated on July 11, 2013

.

somewhat appropriately

the hub junkies sat in a circle

occasionally one would howl at the Moon (maiden)

i just want to livelonger LiveLonger said

that's semi onomatopoeic called Robin from the tree top

for example;-

what would one wear

what wood won where

beside the camp fire

on this the 75th anniversary

of the launching of hubpages

75 long days for hub junkies

75 long days for hub junkies

you're repeating yourself Drax

Webber said

that reminds me, we know the Rolex we want for Christmas, Paul, thanks James

and where's Ralph

he's off sailing around the lakes in big wide circles that are reminiscent of hubs - obviously because they are circles, sorry was that answer too long ?

said Drax smiling sardonically, where's Goga by the way..

Goga got stuck in the Mud and can't make it said Chyna Doll

are you THE Paul Edmondson a newbie called far far away in the back row

yes said Paul beaming as she shot him

we all reacted negatively

well most of us did

Cam said.. cool lookin chick, dramatic entrance !

StuartJ led the flying tackle

the Hummer Winblad rep fainted

our spokesperson said;-

look you can't shoot a central character like that

it is simply very bad form

(can he hear this).. oh ok

you have no idea how long it takes to build up an avatar like Pauls

because this is anniversary night

we're going to rewind the game

you can speed up the slow CEO Mr Stankevicz - Geek will be able to help

YOU, you horrible newbie, (is that right Robin) you can apologise to Paul

..when we bring him back - else you'll be expelled

no no cried the newbie anything only that

I was in warcraft pseudo mode and forgot myself

tell Paul we chorused

beware the links of Drax Moonmaiden intoned

we all howled...

................................. :-)

Hey people, buy some poetry books

.. these poets will provide long hours of entertainment over the winter and books never go bad...

      Jimmy, I don't think I changed it, in fact I'm looking at the original txt file now dated 9.29.06 and they look the same, what is different about it ? ....Drax

      Give us about 4 weeks and I think we'll have some interesting new stuff for the poetry community.

      Hi Paul thanks very much, it was great of Jimmy to highlight this, I was just reading it again myself after the newsletter and Jimmy's great interview/ It seems like such a long time ago, it really was fun writing it. I keep promising to contribute more poetry, just not enough hours in the day. Now with winter approaching I hope to be able to spend more time writing.

      Jimmy mentioned this Hub in a little interview we did with him. We've got a new feature in the works that I hope brings more poetry back. This is a nice memory...thanks Drax.

      Hey Robin, thanks, I would never have thought I would have reached 100, but here I am, 400 is a lot of hubs,,, you never know - winter and all that, plus I'll be out of dial-up (33k/sec) in about 2 weeks, or so I'm told by the local cable co. Expect more output !

      Thanks James, I think links are the essence of the Hub, if people like stuff then it gets linked vertically and horizontally...

      Hey Paul I wanted to introduce some melodrama, sorry we had to shoot you, but we brought

      you back :-) when I saw the ranking table I thought how could you ever write a 100 hubs, being #1 is a major plus.. a big thank you to all the readers out there and to all at Hubpages for a nice friendly uncomplicated fun product... Drax

      Geez Drax, did you have to shoot me with poetic prose, when I really wanted a Rolex. Well, I don't really want one. Sorry, James, but way to climb the rankings. Suorek, would be proud since they are a bit impractical. Remember, I don't own a TV like moonmaiden used to or have a car, but Robin does. Livelonger, will less give me more? Vic, is there a power protien I should take to read all these Hubs. My EPO levels are low. Cam, how about some dating advice for Georgia (my 3 yr old daughter). She asked for a boy friend today. I asked her to settle for a brother. Hey Jimmy, we have a computer for you to fix. Webber, meet Hummer. See what you can do. StuartJ, we need a wikipedia listing, what can you do. A list of facts would be nice. HubPages 75 days old...
