It looked like the Greenygrey was hot on the trail of the A.W.O.L Andy Wolfhol in the last chapter of the poetically funny X Files parody XaW Files. I can’t help but think GG has gone a bit off the trail in the sixth chapter, researching and poetically documenting the life of Yerofey Khabarovsk.
Poem about Khabarovsk
Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, fiction writing correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by J.K. Rowling. I know enough about fiction writing to know that a little background and history is necessary, and that it’s best to fit it into the narrative of the story.
However, I also know that it’s important to keep the story progressing, and don’t know if Khabarovsk is going to be important at the end.
Then again, the Greenygrey doesn’t know that either yet, as it’s still searching for our Wolfhol. Some breather chapters and fillers are often a good idea anyway, and there’s some good info and poetry within this chapter, although all done in a loopy literary nonsense style of course.
XaW Files Chapter 6: Khabarov Stroganov Tretyakov Art History Mix
so well planned
I never got lost.
Named after Khabarov
an adventurer entrepreneur
once manager for Stroganovs.
Stroganovs were an important family
remembered in food and art
like latter’s showpiece Tretyakov gallery.
There’s Morning in a Pine Forest
with a bear family looking cutest.
The Bogatyrs by Vasnetsov
has three warriors
and a greenYgrey background.
Alenushka looking demure
reflecting above a pool
was another Vasnetsov picture.
Khabarov was second to the Amur
after Poyarkov’s three-year expedition
three years before.
Khabarov was there in 1649-50
returning from 1650-53
end of history after refusing expedition 3.
I hope there was a happy ending for Yerofey
because his first name has two Ys
and rhymes with Greenygrey.
After the Greenygrey left to search for the A.W.O.L. Andy Wolfhol on April 1st it soon found itself travelling around Kamchatka. We have since discovered that Swedish rock band Kamchatka released an album named The Search Goes On in February.
Greenygrey’s search hadn’t even started, but it’s now in a similar Kamchatka search as Kamchatka the band were three months ago.
XaW Files Episode 4 :
Around Kamchatka Shore
I must thank Karaginsky
for it did release me
in a downward direction
shot out its southern section.
After widening an exhausted smile
resting on the mouth in a pile
I fell asleep dreaming I ran
waking two bays away in Magadan.
I’d never heard of Karcher
until sitting in an armchair
of my mind
oh what a find
its new advert is full
of green and grey so cool
and even has a yellow middling
like the greenYgrey rebranding:
This blog post was created by a combined team effort pooling the resources of the television team helped by Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill and poetry personnel wiling away with William Wolfsworth.
As the sun sets on Australia Day
in Africa, Europe and the U.K.,
but is still shining bright
in Latin America, Canada and the U.S.A.
it’s time for the last episode in the serialisation of the satirical comedy classic travel quest epic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.
Werewolf of Oz Thrilling Conclusion
Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Yes, that means you get to find out what the commotion out at sea that only Grey could see…
really was; as well as reading a couple more little literary nonsense poems and one more example of classic comedy wordplay.
I’m sure you can’t wait, so I’ll let you get on with your virtual rambling. Thanks for following the epic journey, and the book is still available from the links below it, with no plans to discount its price this year.
Chapter 142. The End: of the Werewolf of Oz Era
It was Tazzy! I squawked with joy before flying down to meet him; whereupon I changed back into a more recognisable werewolf form. We greeted before I asked him what he was doing here.
Tazzy said he often swam up this way; after all, it is the Tasman Sea.
I laughed, before exclaiming, ‘Of course!’ The last riddle of the ramble had been solved… as far as I was concerned. What about you?
I now felt free to return to the Greenygrey world.
Tazzy was continuing north, so I shapeshifted into a dolphin-friendly tuna and swam with him.
We swam side by side
until he dived beneath
to turn around
at top of Barrier Reef;
my original Oz
we happily said goodbye
finality’s welcome relief.
I jumped out of the water and shapeshifted into a wedge-tailed eagle for the long flight back to a long awaited reunion with Green in the Greenygrey world.
Two years in the writing
sometimes flying, mostly hiking
Werewolf of Oz kept moving
experiencing, shapeshifting, grooving.
Wolf Family Fortunes
There’s a show in the wolf world
like Family Fortunes
the quiz show on British television
called Pack Portions.
There’s a wolf quizmaster
like Vernon Kay
called Herman Gee
some think he’s a greenygrey.
His alpha female is fit
like Tess Daly
named Howl Nightly
they live in a den most stately.
Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by the great Romantic poet William Wordsworth.
Although previously in Goodbye to WoO week we’ve shown how the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map and changed its culture with the Boomerang social craze, some of you are probably wondering what the WoO’s done for us.
Knowing Me: 70 Poems of Literary Nonsense Poetry
Well, I think the Greenygrey is much happier within itself since its epic Ozyssey, with Green saying Grey seems much closer to it since it achieved the dust sandy path travel quest, and met lots of great characters along the way.
And I think that writing up its journey, and including seventy literary nonsense poems, has made it a better writer and poet, as the above poem suggests to me.
It’s goodbye to the Werewolf of Oz week at the Greenygrey, with just one episode to go in the epic 142-episodes serialisation of the first ever fictionalised virtual travel around Australia by Google maps.
In the words of the almighty Abba, breaking up is never easy, but like them, we’ll still be working with WoO.
Knowing Me, Knowing WoO, Photos for You
Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, creative department head honcho in the absence of the legendary Andy Wolfhol. First of all, William Wolfsworth has done some further research, and clarified that the Parcel Force van logo mentioned in the last mirror poetry blog is ‘making red vans green’.
Your very own travel photos are always good for a trip down memory lane, and it’s no different for virtual travel.
That’s what Grey (as part of the reunited Greenygrey) told me this morning anyway, after a couple of greenygrey photos it saw on Facebook reminded it of the Greycliffe House mouse it met in Sydney. The poem is repeated after the photos.
Virtual Travel Photos: Virtually Greycliffe House
That photo was posted on Facebook rather fittingly for Goodbye to WoO week by the R.I.P. (Research and Investigation of the Paranormal) Files T.V. show, which I noticed has a greenygrey design when I followed it up.
Virtual Travel Photos: Greycliffe House Mouse
And if that house could be Greycliffe House, this could be the mouse, showing its support for the Greenygrey! It was posted on Facebook by the Rainforest Site.
It reminded me of Jerry, from the fantastic Tom and Jerry cartoons I grew up with.
Here’s the poem (and links to the WoO):
Not long after I’d thanked Dr. Watson and turned away,
in a triangular hall containing a square ball,
I was accosted by a small mouse of my colour grey.
It said its name was Cliff and the house was named after him,
I replied it was built in 1852 so how could that be true,
It said it was on a special diet and low-fat cheese kept it quiet.
