Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

kevin s on librivox
gave me some rather depressing shocks
he hinted to the coffin box
and that the death isn't one who knocks
and that it seems to be safer than fort knox
that you won't get out of this bollocks
when trying to be the task fullfilling jocks
and meanwhile i go and feel the spocks
whispering to me in black tones of flocks
(i never claimed to be good in english or rhyming :P )
en: lay down your arms, essays on art by goethe

I thought of a few rhymes for Librivox, but I'm afraid they're all rather thematically disparate.
Four-o-clocks
Sassenachs
Alpenstocks
Aftershocks
Goldilocks
We are near to electing a LibriVox Poet Laureate. I will add your name!

In recording for old LibriVox
I love to use language that rocks,
But the public domain
Can be quite a pain
By avoiding such words like the pox.
Be kind. Be interesting. Be useful. Morality ain't hard.--Jack Butler, Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock

From poems, prose, to paradox
We find it all on Librivox!
Thoughts for brain,
Public domain,
And recorded on Librivox!
- Antonio

There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –

- Emily Dickinson
