  • Twas The Night Before . . .

    'T was the night before concert, and all over the world,
    forum members were stirring, their nerves a bit curled.

    They had purchased their tickets, and now had to wait,
    for Sabbath was coming on a particular date.

    Most were content, but not everyone, still.
    Some were displeased with the absence of Bill.

    So what will they play? New songs or old?
    What ever they choose, it's as precious as gold.

    I'm hoping for Spiral. Wow, that would be great.
    But anything's fine, from the great 8.

    War Pigs for sure, and of course Paranoid.
    But how about Sweet Leaf, or Into The Void?

    The Wizard or Warning, for those I would fight.
    Symptom is out, but maybe The Writ.

    Supernaut, Wheels, and Never Say Die.
    Fairies Wear Boots, and Hole In The Sky.

    Under The Sun, would sure make me glad.
    Then finish with Hard Road, but then I'd turn sad.

    For it's the final time out, no more to be heard.
    No more together, at least that's the word.

    Butler's bass, which I love, and not just by choice.
    The riffs of Iommi, Ozzy's sinister voice.

    It's the final farewell, the last chance to attend.
    The time has now come, and that time is --> The End!
    Nobody I know is gonna take my rock & roll away from me.

        One Sabbath Day in 2027

        Ward's not on the bill
        There's no one else to play with

        Sharon's given up dictating and playing Yoko
        Full of years worth of loot, she heads to Acapulco
        ... and emails a divorce notice.

        Ozzy has stumbled to the floor
        He's had one too many the night before
        ... singing backup for Kelly.

        Tony's fingers won't play again
        He's now wondering ... ballet? Or just pool
        If only he were in contact with Martin or Gillan still alive.

        Geezer doesn't have to work, he has his own butler
        And a chauffeur, a maid, and anything else you can think of.

        Rick Rubin now performs all instruments himself
        He sucks and harder than ever
        He has no debut album to rip off.

        It was good while it lasted
        And while Ozzy lasted
        Dio made it out just in time

        A postcard arrives from Sweden
        Thank you for the music, it says
        Signed, Abba.

          Guys, as always, ripping each other will eventually get you banned, but the band, its members, et al. have always been fair game. If you don't like a negative post, write your own positive one without slamming the member who pissed you off. If you must flame,go to PM, it is working once again!

          Happy Holidays!

                    I enjoyed reading that. Merry Christmas!
                    You tried to suppress me
                    But nothing holds me down
                    Just when you think you're happy
                    I come around

                        Damian is perhaps referring to a post that has since been removed.

                          I'm reminding you and anyone else, NOT to flame. If someone needs to be singled out, that person will know, believe me.

                            A very healthy reminder indeed!

                            And Typhon great little poem there! And SCS that one gave me few good chuckles! Good job!
