Seven little wooden tiles
hold promise and frustration
lay jumbled in a tiny trough
awaiting your inspiration.
A couple hundred squares
upon which they could rest
and cast their vexing spells
of lexical incantation.
Lucky tiles doubled or tripled
singularly or aggregately
find their true valuation
only through multiplication.
While it’s a game of X’s and O’s
you must mind your P’s and Q’s
RSVP your opponent’s ABC’s
maintain vigil so not to lose EZ.

I came in from the wilderness a creature void of form
“Come in” she said
“I’ll give you shelter from the storm”

So Dupped-Us (aka virtual ceo of Limp Alley) has posted Empire Avenue Introduces V! which is a real yawner of a blog post.
The original “virtual currency” of LimpAlley – the “eave” or “e” – has been so devalued that Dupped-Us had to dream up another one — the “V” … which will soon be as worthless as the “e”.
LimpAlley’s new virtual currency … it’s virtually worthless!!!
We all know these symbols – $ € £ ¥ – to have or denote value of some meaningful sort, and even the new ₹ (Rupee) is worth a little something, but LimpAlley better hope their new V thingie does NOT get confused with the Vanuatu vatu, ‘cuz that thing ain’t worth much at all … that’s just my 2¢!!!
I felt deep down that the only way to have this job security that I heard people speak of , I would have to write my own paycheck….
