The Feast for Beasts

by Eternal Muse

    The animals gathered for FanStory chat -
    Giraffes and monkeys and Bitty the Bat,
    the lions and antelopes, tigers and more
    to share FS latest and settle the score.

    OK, said the elephant - who wants to share?
    We've got lots of subjects to handle "with care"
    Reviewers, for one - oh, they drive me insane!
    The arrogant losers, they are such a pain!

    You're right, said the lion - I got one today:
    "Review of the century" - blew me away
    He said that my contest Haiku is too long!
    I know his hard-boiled type, they are never wrong.

                      rainbow prism
                      illuminates the sky
                      nature show

     And here's his review, so you know what I mean:
     "Your haiku's creative, and paints a fine scene.
     Twelve syllables, though, I think is too long -
     Though it does have potential, don't get me wrong."

      Oh, yeah, said the Bat - and what gets me berserk -
      the site rules say we can't defend our own work!
      I reckon, the Bible reads "turn other cheek" --
      But I tell you, that doctrine's for spineless and meek!
     Giraffe was waiting for her friends to vent
     They finally finished, all burnt-out and spent
     - With my long neck, guys, it will take me a while
     to get what you said - but you did make me SMILE!
