No Comment - a Tale of Two Bloggers

"You never comment on my blog!"
She huffed a bit and sighed.
"And that means that you don't like me,"
She stamped her feet and cried.

"But," he ventured, quite perplexed
"You know that isn't true.
I write about you all the time
And chat for hours too."

"Not good enough!" she snapped, in tears
"You commented elsewhere.
You comment on your other friends
The ones I won't go near."

"I'm Alpha Male!" asserted he,
While puffing out his chest.
"I comment where the hell I like
And where I think it best."

She lectured him, she whinged and whined
She spat her dummy out
"All right," said he, defeatedly
"I'll write away your doubt."

He commented on every post
She'd written the past week
So now she knows just what to do
To keep her Alpha meek.

I see all this and shake my head
Watch Utopia fade
The inner workings of the clique
Are not as they're portrayed.

a sensitive touch for a delicate subject.
let the lion roar, i say.

Luka said...

Well, as I always say, fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

Ms Robinson said...

Luka this is a radical way to stop the bags of fan mail arriving at your home. You could just say send a card to charity or something.

Luka said...

Hello Ms Robinson - back from your travels, I see! Sometimes I witness situations so bizarre I can't even remeber there is such a thing as a conservative option.

The Man With Secrets said...

And that, Luka, must explain why no-one wants to fuck me ...

Luka said...

Man - I am raising my eyebrow in your general direction.

n said...

Now i naively thought blogging was about freedom of thought, is it just the same as real life, full of ever so needy people exerting their authority?

Luka said...

N - blogging is just another facet of real life, with the same mix of honesty, freedom, insecurities and angst. Most of the time we are blissfully unaware of what is going on beneath the surface. In some blogging circles people are free to write what they think, as long as they write that they think certain people are just *great*.

It's no biggie, I just felt the need to express my surprise at the situation through the medium of rhyme.

Freddy said...

I love the way you capture
The sense it's all unreal
But if I were an alpha male
I'm not sure how I'd feel

Your rhyming skills are legendary
Your insight so precise
I'd hate to be in your sights
That wouldn't be so nice


damn I knew it was foolish to attempt to rhyme my reply, but it's too late now

The Man With Secrets said...

Don't you just love the way that a post - nay, a blog - that targets blog cliquiness has managed to build its own clique of resolutely non-cliquey folk, busily deriding every perceived clique, other than, er, that is, their own. Ironic.

Just an observation. As our gorgeous hostess would say, needed saying, I think.

Lady in red said...

I'm sure there must be a mirror blog doing that elsewhere

sorry I cant stop long need to go find some more arse

bittersweet me said...

oooh!! does that mean i'm in a clique? how exciting ... what happens next? can we shag?

Luka said...

Freddy - I enjoyed the tribute of rhyme, nonetheless.

Man - I shall post fully on this, so it is not lost amid the comments.

Lady in Red - yay! You spotted I blogrolled you!

Bittersweet - not until you have written a beautiful and evocative post about how much you want to, first.

Freddy said...

how about if I write a beatuifully evocative post about wanting you both?
or indeed, why hold back - I'll write a fantasy involving MsR and EmmaK and lir and n and angelalalala and Jackie and ohhhh hmmm i think I need a lay down

Luka said...

Freddy - you'll be Shitasmed and WobbleArsed for sure with a humdinger like that!

Lady in red said...

Freddy said...

having my cake said...

God, I go away for two days and Im included in neither the Boudoir Bitch clique nor Freddy's Fuck Brigade! Im distraught!

Luka said...

Having My Cake - I am chuckling at the phrase "Freddy's Fuck Brigade". Don't be distraught, be in my splinter group, Luka Against Bloggers In Alliance, or LABIA for short.

n said...

Fuck thats funny. Shit! Sorry i meant to say, mmmmmmm, that's hot!

Freddy said...

cake cake cake - of course you're in my Fuck Brigade
I am of course mindful of Marie Antoinette's instruction ...

Luka, be careful with your new group - the last thing you want is a splinter in your L.A.B.I.A.

Curvaceous Dee said...

Leaving aside the topic of your rhymes (which amused me mightily), I just wanted to note that you're damned talented with that sharp pen of yours, Luka!

xx Dee

Luka said...

Curvaceous Dee - thank you, I am basking in the glow of your kind words! xxx
