Marillion is David Nelson Bradsher, a self-constructed Byronic Hero (or Zero), flawed but well-meaning, simple but paradoxical, and still a work in progress.

He graduated from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) in 1989 with a B - more...

The Seal of Quality committee has rewarded him with 5 seals.

The Tripod of Priapus
Two hens came trooping from their coop;
Each launched a raunchy wad—
Alas, their way could never sway
The rod that girds this god.
First, Paula worked to twerk my tongue
(Or, possibly, my jewels)—
You wily girl, the rhymes you hurl
Might fell the tools of fools—
But I, however, stand alert,
Erect and yet unbowed,
So much, you see, my legs are three,
A tripod, high and proud.
Then, Dawn’s riposte proposed to try
Some willy-nilly tricks,
A product built to wilt my stilt—  
The Priapus of pricks.
You’ll never clip or trip me up
Or set my piece to bending;
And neither age nor female rage
Will see my peak descending.
Saltpeter? – please! —you make me laugh!
Potassium abound!
It keeps my big banana rig
From dragging on the ground.
Pray tell, what other ways and means
Can satiate the reader?
What might defeat my mighty sweet
And salty haughty peter?


Author Notes
Yes, the rogue has descended to the depths of absurdity with this one, but he's just answered ripostes from Paulah60 (Knifing The Rogue) and Ideasaregems~Dawn (A Wondrous Thing-for the rogue).

Please take this for the silly verse it is, a fun little exercise between myself and whoever else has been interested enough to roll in the mud with me. The Rogue Series is probably nearing a respite, as there is some serious work I'd like to post in lieu of this, but he'll always pop back up when you least (or most) expect it.

Thanks for reading.
