The Ent. Is Near! (2/2)


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

What did weevils do, Curly? I hear you inquire.

Do they truly, maliciously fight fire with fire?

Can I trust an exterminatress with such dire

And harmful suggestions to be on the level?


Well I tell you, my girly, that what I maintain

Is true to the limit. Just let me explain

That a weevil's unholy. No one could retrain

Them to pray to the Maker, or join in a revel.


So kill them, just kill them! Stomp flat their parade!

You could douse them with gasoline or lemonade.

Or come to my shop and I'll sell you some Raid

For a lovely low price on your bill....

Come assault all the weevils and fight off their evil

Aand your life, after that, will be chill!


Come to Garton's Extermin-

Atory Salon to kill Vermin

And you all will find glory!

This went from Don Quixote spouting (part one) to a TV ad for an exterminatress (part two). I kinda like one better. The silliness was more masked, more of an undertone.

~nodding~ that makes sense. Although by now, having finished it (it was all written in one go but without a plan) part 2 makes part 1 seem like the setup for 2, the fact is I wasn't really intending to go in this commercial direction till I actually hit part 2. So if you take 1 as is (and it was written that way), it's loopy but not so mercenary...

Personally, I've always preferred to go with the lesser of two weevils.
