Literary Nonsense Poetry fills Waiting Time Void

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s Werewolf of Oz time, with the last episode no doubt keeping you on the edge of your seat for the last few days, as our travelling trio faced a crucial decision that would decided their timequake fate on  the edge of what humans know as Adelaide, South Australia.

Remember Wally B’s Marauder t-shirt at the end of Rainbow Valley in a previous episode. It’s relevance is revealed in this episode; or that’s what the travelling trio hope anyway…

With 142 chapters in the Werewolf of Oz, there’s only 100 more to go after this. And the literary nonsense just keeps flowing…

Time will make you Wait, and never be Late

Tick, tock, tick, tock,
time waits for nobody
even in a state of stagnancy
of an alien world strange city.
Crows can fly
redbacks scurry by
if they fought beyond Y
which one would die?
It’s a dilemma, my oh my,
could easily induce a cry.
What temperature is ice meltable?
No, their choice is more hypothetical
than some real world conundrum
that is scientifically measurable.
We cannot help, or advise,
for our words would become lies
in a land where time waits for no-one
and only flies when it’s having fun.

Had time stood still? It certainly seemed so, and I was none the wiser. Then Elle looked up and pointed to the Marauder t-shirts; before reminding us that Wally B had said he thought they’d be useful in Oz South.

Tension was replaced by relief, as we looked at each other with knowing grins. Elle confirmed my thoughts, ‘Crows are birds, and the Marauder t-shirt features a bird image, so according to Wally B theory, the Crows will win.’


We rushed over to Theold Gumtree
and said we’d wager our timesanity
on Crows to beat Redbacks
confident we’ll make tracks
back to our own place in history…

Literary Nonsense Poetry Perfect for Decisionmaking

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s time for the second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps of the week, and with its sporting theme its the perfect warm-up for the weekend… and if you’re in Britain you’ll need some warming up!

The literary nonsense poetry is really warming up too, with this episode another one that is completely poetry.

With the Rainbow Valley extended adventure a recent memory, this episode sees the travelling trio trying to choose between Crows and Redbacks, with their chances of escaping the timequake tumult dependent on the decision. Here it is:

We got in a huddle
and a bit of a muddle
working out a preamble
to finish our ramble.
I rubbed my hat
until it was flat
and then it shone:
a sign of game on?

The crows have two wings
talons and beak,
redbacks have eight legs
a fiery streak.
Who will win the contest
it is difficult to decide;
could be down to injury
or a contentious offside.
Choosing could be
a hat-trick calamity
for three travellers
trapped outside normality.
