TENNIS TWEETERS TAGGED

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 31, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Serena

The game’s afoot

At Flushing Meadows

A shadowy figure
tags the stars

Serena can grunt
But she mustn’t tweet

She ain’t allowed to tweet no more
no more

She ain’t allowed to tweet no more

HIS QUEEN WAS THERE

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on August 29, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Edward Kennedy

His queen was there
for the last reel
but where
was Arthur

He was near
when the center broke
and there
when the square broke.

Where
was Merlin then?

Still the Lady of the Lake gazed
outwards and upwards
but where was Galahad

The court was there
keeping watch
but where was Lancelot

The silenced lambs gather
but where
was Camelot

TWITTER HOLED

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 28, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Wreck of the Deutschland

I knew it.

Twitter leaks
A rusty hulk
to be boarded and sunk

Pirates are scanning
for the main chance

Can its holes be plugged?
or will the ship
slip quietly away

UNREST THE AYATOLLAH SAYS

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 27, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Spiking the guns

Unrest the Ayatollah says
was played for
planned for
by the West

Who knows what’s going on?
The first image of a death
dominates

Twitter was spooked
into inaction

and was it spiked
in a reaction?

TWITTER SEVEN TWITTER BOSS IS SHE COOL OR WHAT

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 26, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Evan Williams

I had to

had to
Look at twitter
whatever the cost

Found the Head man
there

He is most high

He invented The Blog

He won the election
for Obama

Does good by stealth
In Iran

Who would find fault in such a man?

His wife
Tweets Evan
while birthing

Twitter Boss
Is she cool or what?

Am I blind
to leer as I do?
To fear as I do?

TWITTER FOURTEEN THE STALKERS OF TWITTER

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 20, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Lurkers

Not what I thought
in the beginning

Twitter is perhaps
more sinned against
than sinning

If that’s the truth
that truth is also bitter:
Out there there’s someone
stalking

someone stalking Twitter

Hari Krishna

to really get Twitter

You need a detective

Maybe a magic detective

A Harry Twitter

Harry would be brave
And his friends would help too

Even if they faced
The raindrops of Ruzima

I HAVE A CUNNING PLAN

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 16, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Baldrick

The twittering creature wakes

How to speak out
but not risk everything?

I must risk something

Twitter is a cuckoo
laid by whatever bird devil
in the world-wide nest

It grows stronger
tweets to be fed
before the rest.

Who will act?

I have no chioce
I shall act

I have a plan
A cunning plan

It must be
an oh so
cunning plan.

I will go
disguised
into the world of twets

Seeking a holy worm
of hope

To find oh yes a follower
a following

A following
for words
I will not
dare not say

Who
would that follower be?
