The creative genius of LeeJ strikes again! Instead of letting this get buried in the Thoguht for the day thread, I've transferred the few post to this over to here.

Come...addeth thine own verse....

From LeeJ:

Whan that Octobre it's Leaves had shed
That from the gustes of Autumne had falln and flede
Seeking succoure we pilgrimmes did arrive to chatte
within the anciente confines of the Aulde Mudcatte.

-The Catterbury Tails

From Bert:

and to the aulde tavern do we wende
to drinken vile liquour blackke and trende
and bathe inne gelled limoo grene and woubblee
to easen us of alle oure cares and troubbles

From Kat:

thenne wenndeing oure way
we doth threade ande weave
inne and aboot the wordes of
thou beffore and thou abafft

Bert:

and whan thou art abafft the 'possums ende
be shoure to blaw and whistle full and hende
and from the mouth shalle come asound full straunge
that maketh alle folkes minds deraunge

Kat:

the insanitty witche raineth there
was noot for oughte
for greate melodiees issueded forth
and the words, they were a'stranged

One man came before them, dressed in muckle finerie
His namme was Maximillian, and he woulde theire Leader be
Who,with a bolde Knighte Templar, Sir Bertrand was his namme
Vowed to go the righteous waye, and nought the Pathe of Shame

There stood a red-topped Giante, who was a man of Eire
His tempere was a fierie as his top-knotte of redde haire
A cooke of Grete Reknowne he was, for he hadde been schooled in Brussels
Ande he coulde cooke a salmon welle, and also shrimpe and mussels

Drawne and quatereded there he laye
Whene the houndes didst seeke to baye
Foundst we his ghostie did not, for ere we laide
Him in the grave, we piecemeal of him mayde!

Tho', juste to showe our kindliness an' alle
We put the pieces backe together and place-ed him on a pall
Withe bits of thise and bits of that, we strung them in a row
So he could dance a jig, amongst the rig, to our fiddler's wicked bowe!

Then Maximillian did syng out "be-still thy tedious chatter!
And knowe there is no nobler aime than to be a Mudcatter!
Whilst thou wouldst taxe the very byrdes to enlarge thy trove of treassure
We seek to fill each wooded glenne with merrie myrthe and measure!

Our Pylgimmage is one, mayhap, you will not understande
For it is our wishe to save the anciente music of our lande
for doing this we aske no fee, and neither do we charge one
To any roamyng minstrel free,be he a smalle or large one."
