The Next Rotation - The Universe of Fenris Fox

Poetry Catch-up, Part I: "Of The Paper or the Pen," "DigiZaster," "My Muse"

I know I'm not one to normally combine multiple works into a single post; however, I have such a huge backlog of work - mainly poetry - in my notebook, that to publish them all separately would be rough. It'd flood not only all the old posts off the page, but also overflow it, so even the new ones won't all show!

Of the Paper or the Pen
By Fenny F. (Jeff R.)
Written 10/27/2006; Original Web Release, First Edition 11/14/2006

A fox of light,
One way I'm pulled;
Shadow-born
This day I mull my choice;
Must I be one,
Can I be both?

Fox of the Paper,
Fox of the Pen;
Is it where I go,
Or where I've been?
One solitary price
Or the sum of them?

DigiZaster
By Fenny F. (Jeff R.)
Written 10/27/2006; Original Web Release, First Edition 11/14/2006

Dive in the digital age
Quest in vain for the sage
Drown in information's drink
While millions watch you sink.

Look around the bend,
Someone's pressing Send
You just got the worm,
Now you'll crash and burn.

Running for the safe
Gotta get the tape
Backup didn't take -
Little fish got ate!

Dive in the digital age
Quest in vain for the sage
Drown in information's drink
While millions watch you sink.

For hours move the 'sor,
Your eyes'll start to burn
Ruffle up your fur,
To get things as they were!

My Muse
By Fenny F. (Jeff R.)
Written 10/27/2006; Original Web Release, First Edition, 11/14/2006

Those of us who write,
Those of us who draw,
And even those of us
Who sculpture what is wrought -
We all have one.

The story upon the cave,
The owl upon the coin -
All is driven by the Muse.

Though the world changed -
Chisel, reed, stylus,
The quill, the fountain & the ball,
Typewriter & computer -
All is still the same,
All is driven by the Muse.

You've got one if you've got the gift,
Deny it, and it's a lie;
It may be something you like to share;
It may be something you try to hide.

For some it was a drug,
For some it was a dream;
For me it is something they never could have seen.

And while it is not internal,
And something that I hear;
That it will still take its toll
Is something that I fear.

But whatever price my Muse will take,
Whatever 'comes of me;
My feelings say that this is right,
So that is what will be.
