Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We’re still riding the crest of the Oz the Great and Powerful wave here, reminding Grey of a catastrophic Kansassy storm on its epic comedy-fantasy journey across Oz; not to be mixed up with Grey’s original journey from the Greenygrey world to Oz, which was even more like the classic Kansas to Oz journey.
And funnily enough; and hopefully funnily enough for you; here’s the second of the Kangaroo Island to Tasmania tetralogy/quadrilogy literary nonsense epic poetry narrative of that very storm, and fifty-fifth chapter of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.
Without foresight, writing of fives reminds me of the four by four question in the previous Werewolf of Oz blog. The four fours were: four travellers, four rocks in the image, the first of four poems and the Granduncle 4 image. Now, on with the fives… and twos:
55. TAZ-MANIA IS A SAVIOUR AND STORM ABATER
Taz-tastic Treat for Two Times Two
For two days the storm did blow
waves and spray like driven snow,
we did our best to hold on tight
two to the left and brace to right.
Barracuda and tuna flew past
as if fleeing from a deep line cast,
I began to fear all was surely lost
seeing a storm from a distant coast,
approaching at an incredible speed
I thought that’s all we need.
But it was the storm it repelled
and with giant waves quelled
the new spinning fury did land on deck,
and when it calmed above the neck
we could clearly see it was cartoon Taz
along with his friends, Baz and Caz.
