Clue Spork In It

I got bored with a troll called Salvage on a Rott thread, but he was at least livening the place up with his leavings. So I dashed off this parody of the Eagles' "New York Minute". I generally prefer to parody better known songs, one's that have achieved ear worm status, because if a person doesn't immediately remember the song then the parody is just really crappy poetry, just like the original lyrics. Of course, nothing quite matches the anti-war poetry for absolute, mind-numbing incompetance, but then what would.

Clue Spork In It

Salvage post up
tressed all in flak
Spat out his creation
And we never cut slack
They found his trollage
Scattered somewhere down his crack
But he'll still be spamming our site
in the morning

He had a meme
The depth of a knurl
But memes get tossed sometimes
As jeers unfurl
One day he crossed some line
And he was too dense for this world
But I guess he's troll splatter anymore

Stick a clue spork in it
Intriguing as mange
Stick a clue spork in it
Thing's damn well pretty strange
Stick a clue sport in it
Revolting exchange
Stick a clue sport in it

Lying here in the darkness
I see the moon bats flail
Somebody posting insurgency
Somebody's post gets nailed
If you find some baddie to shove in this world
You better gang on good and well
The Rott is always at the door

Stick a clue spork in it
Intriguing as mange
Stick a clue spork in it
Thing's damn well pretty strange
Stick a clue sport in it
Revolting exchange
Stick a clue sport in it

And in these days
When darkness falls early
And people rush posts
To the ones they loathe
You better take a fool's advice
And take care of your trolls
One day they're here;
Next day they're gone

I wrote my gloat down in the comments
And took a cruise down through the web
The memes were falling behind me
The groaning hippies in the gathering dark
On some solitary rock
A desperate blogger left his mark,
"Baby, I'm bored. Please come back."

What the web makes cloudy
The 'tard makes very clear
The threads were so much brighter
In the time when it was here
But I know there's somebody somewhere
Make this bandwidth disappear
Until that day, I have to believe
I believe, I believe

Stick a clue spork in it
Intriguing as mange
Stick a clue spork in it
Thing's damn well pretty strange
Stick a clue sport in it
Revolting exchange
Stick a clue sport in it
