    Is he off his meds?

    Look what the Old geezer posted.

    I am worried! Let's take up a collection.

    He needs to sail more and type less.

    Those damn nurses must be keeping him away from the sailing pond again.

    A Preface to a Limerick
    By Old Geezer

    You can't use the bain?
    What a pain!
    It would be such a gain
    And now you've flushed Rossums' idea down the drain.

    I can hardly contain
    My disdain
    For how these rules constrain
    A Laser sailor like Rossums who wants to use his brain.


    So to save him any more strain
    Let's start a campaign
    To allow use of the bain
    And to elect Rossums for President of the whole damn global Laser domain.

    The Geezer
    BY Gouvernail

    The Geezer just posted again
    and again and again and again
    and again and again
    and again and again
    and again and again and again

    Gouvernail thinks I post too much
    He has a point as such.
    In my profile it boasts
    That I have made three hundred and thirty posts.

    But who is the pot calling the kettle black?
    How dare he give me all this flack?
    In a similar amount of time
    He has made nine hundred and fifteen posts (but not all in rhyme).

    So please don't criticize me young Fred
    After all it could be said,
    As someone wrote here once before,
    That you're the one who needs to type less and sail more.

    They ain't thick, but then they ain't fast either.
    by Chainsaw


    The excuses run thick and fast on who will be last
    to post the most
    and drain the brain from the laser forum game.

    The older they get, the slower they sail
    and the louder they wail,
    as the young bloods put the final nail
    in their regatta careers.

    The oldsters can but kneel at the altar of zeal
    displayed by Rossums and the like,
    who can still hike hike hike
    while the best they can do is take a rest home trike
    down the club
    to remember what was
    when they sailed more and didn’t keep score
    on the laser forum game.

    Twas all in vain.

    There one thing I still do
    and youngsters sometimes do too
    I hike real hard
    And deliver my word
    and still sail faster than you

    This message my just be a boast
    about Geezer and too may posts
    It may be absurd
    to post rhyming words
    to you poets I still raise a toast

    OK so I'm up posting late
    and the content my not be so great
    But the race was light air
    and I wasn't there
    so in Cleveland Friend Bill could do great

    ...

    Now Geezer.. you are in the thread with us
    And you're right no one posts quite like this sss
    Lest you rhyme more in time
    to get out of this grime
    you still could be writing next christmas
