Doggerel Dave

He had it coming, some poets will say:

Doggerel Dave, who enjoys a debate

Has a troll on his tail who won’t go away.

This busy boy seems a little irate…….….

    Ouch .. how does one tell these days?

    • Doggerel Dave

      True - but this one is everywhere in evidence - see my back catalogue.

      We have a Troll Bridge a couple of miles away. Not seen any trolls jump out from under it!

      • Doggerel Dave

        Time for an eye test, orchi. If I find a friendly one (hardly likely, but you never know) he will make a quick meal out of Fido - that hound would only be the entrée, you understand.....

        Trolls they seem like they have multiplied these days. I'm glad that I'm not the only one that has noticed. Population control may be the answer.

        • Doggerel Dave

          l'll pay that one, Soren.

          Top to bottom totally meaningless,
          I am shocked by the poet's ignorance,
          How can he write such paltry songs?
          Read his poem to get utter confusion,
          An expert in writing ridiculous poems?
          His poems teach how not to write poems?

          • Doggerel Dave

            From you, the subject of this little ditty, I expected no less.

          • crypticbard

            Oh my. Never a dull moment for you, it seems.

          • Ok Waleed

            Philosophers were the first trolls btw

            • Doggerel Dave

              Care to elaborate on that a little, Ok? Interesting.....

            • Bella Shepard

              I have read that sunlight it will turn a troll to stone. The trick is to use the right bate to lure him from his cave. Good Luck!

              • Doggerel Dave

                I have, and he has as above, Bella. Grateful for the support.

                Over the years, some trolls have effected me more than others - but when I realized my reaction was the food that they lived on I stopped feeding them (or just blocked a few of the worst offenders). A fresh write, Dog, enjoyed bringing it to mind.

                • Doggerel Dave

                  Thanks, Gary. My strategy has always been the supply of plenty of fresh air and light bought to bear, and no retreat.

                  Editorial note: I'm top of the pops at MPS (see 'Trending now'). Never happened before.....
                  Those happy controllers back stage really shouldn't encourage me.... 😇
