My first post by PedAunty
Comments wreathed in mystery
I didn’t know the history
Baffled but I am no shirker
I remained a silent ‘lurker’
Who is Melmoth? What are nests?
In-jokes that cannot be guessed
As to 'splother', is it free?
What on earth is E.P.T?
I learnt a wealth of English words
But only understood two thirds
Had a lot of burning questions
Needed answers and suggestions
Tension mounted. Should I post?
Perhaps I should, I am engrossed
What about my views Teutonic,
Slender grasp of things ironic?
I first replied to SillyAunt
With knowledge meagre, weak and scant
Later when I checked the thread
No one had torn off my head!
My second post had less success
With spoiling you don’t want to mess
It left me feeling quite astonished
The verve with which I was admonished
But, I still admire this forum
Most folks post with fine decorum
If you don't utter words like 'clique'
You'll find this web-site quite unique
I still do not quite get the 'Caff'
But Germans are not known to laugh
At English jokes so smart and slick
I much prefer my humour slap-stick
