Nystrom's Dilemma

Love to all. And forgive the poverty of the post, it was composed with haste. Some lines don't rhyme, and others waste.

Forgive the analogies to divinity, no irreverence is meant. It is just to keep with the metaphor of the ark. Don't get bent!

Love it or hate it, praise or berate it. If you rate it, you are voter, and if a voter, a scorned freeloader.


He formed the site
Out of the word
But when you speak
You will be heard

Other souls will come
Their will, their own
They will speak
They will fight and foam

And sometimes they will
Scorn their god
They have their will
Rough cornered, rough shod

It will not always
Correspond to Daddy's
Foal will run
And swim will Taddys

Poles away
From poppa frog
Hop away
Despite his angry nod

Kiddies will play
Play with fire
Play with hate
Play with envy

Crack the slate
Smash the flint
Alight the fire
Break the tablet

Smash the chain from the rock
The old problem
Rebel against the one who formed them
Toss the stones

Embrace the boredom
And sometimes even
The god himself will shrug
Whether Atlas

Or big M Nystrom
And when he walks
Off the field
What will the clay do

Un baked
Un annealed
Will it seethe
Sink back to Chaos?

Or will it prove
Free will is real
Pathos and ethos
Soon congealed

Nystrom's experiment
His petri dish
He tells his creatures
You are dismissed

In his freedom
There is bliss
In his distance
There is pleasure

The treasure chest
Of collected fools
Souls and wills
Fester in pools

Buyers drool
To purchase his people
But when he's gone
Then sinks the steeple

The people drown
Or swim their way
For greener pastures
Some other day

The creator remains
Laughs with the word
Forgives His Cains

And waits around
To kill the time
That he created
Line by line

Creating more?
Or self sufficient
Finds new digs
Cuz all was spent

Glad you're back

Love you Bill

Glad to see you back.

Sorry about that thing back there.
Sorry about chat.

One thing certain
Buyers droolin'
This much clear
Won't be sellin', just retoolin'

Like the caterpillar
That stings like a bee
And everyone else
I just want to be free

Good one Bill. I missed you.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

missed you too


But I aint back any more than you are.

Let's rap.

Peace, Love, we have in droves
Enough to make a body sick
Restless, packin', seekin' fortunes
But where's the gold? I ask it often
Wheres the gold, wheres the gold?
Where is my sunken spanish galleon?
Where is my reward for all this truth
Where is the payment for me and you
If truth cannot convert to fed bux
Well then tellin it, the job it sux
But for us real artists and fighters
Paid in memory, little stories
Posthumously, wrapped in glory

dedicated to the warrior smudge pot and the unappreciated artist m nys

Bill3, Bill3

Blessed with many talents are thee
You stood strong and saved the DP
From the siren song of Anarchy

Brought down the hammer, did not flee
Spoke a truth few others could see
For that, eternal gratefulness from me

But like you said in your own yuks
If truth cannot convert to fed bux
Well then tellin it, the job it sux

Working and slaving in a salt mine
How can we ever find the time
For all this truth talkin' tellin' & speakin'
Without money in our pockets
What will we be eatin'?

I wish it were different
I know there's a way
To transcend the existence
Of the mundane day

The Daily Paul's not dead, but she's dyin'
Ain't no big deal, no need for cryin'
That is what the Wise Man said:
"You have to die to live again."

All them newborns, little baby pols
They're all cheerin' for Rand Paul
Expectin' the site to be the same
Like a repeat of the 2012 game

But I ain't bitin' - can't live that way
Once was enough
Twice too many
Thrice impossible!
And if the crowd wants to force me
I'll be on my way

But in this dyin'
I see new life
Something inspiring
Beyond the strife

"Peace and love we have in droves,"
Bill3 sayeth so casually.

Peace and Love? I don't see it
Clarification, I ask of thee
I never saw it even once on TV.
Alls I see is screamin an' a shoutin'
Bombs being dropped and heads bein' chopped

The one thing that holds this place together
Are the invisible bonds of the virtual people
Who on their own built the steeple.

Good fortune to you and all...

"Yes, he's made it perfectly clear. Crystal clear."

Now we just need Granger to post something disagreeable...

and it will feel like home again.


She may not realize that she's been un-banned. I was going to send her an e-mail to let her know, but the private messaging thing on the DP seems to have vanished. I liked Granger a lot till she went nuts for Israel. Even then, I had one FASCINATING conversation with her that absolutely made my day. I was arguing that Israel - not Arabs with boxcutters - carried out the 9/11 attack, and I reduced Granger to saying "So what if they did?" Gawp.

Nice Bill!

Dig it - and welcome back.

Good to see ya Bill

Wonderful as per usual. I've watched Nystrom go back and forth and weigh out all different aspects of the dilemma you pointed out. Anyone that thinks he is in an easy position is just wrong. Hope ya had a good summer, thanks for gracing us with your presence again.

It's fun to watch people do their thing.

MN will come out clean regardless. He's just an artist stressing over his pots and creations. Creators are never satisfied, except for some mothers...

Dodge the flood, its coming!! I is curious if anyone has ever committed straight up infanticide/abortion on their own community? Jim jones notwithstanding. But usually a mother will sell the baby rather than drown it, but anything is possible in the human drama. I watch with absorbing interest. Once a week at least!

Good to see you to jrd. Glad to see you're still the knife wielding enforcer around here.

If the DP's a kid

She has to grow
Can't be a helicopter
Parent no mo'

Drown the baby
No can do
Sell her ass
Even less true

Facing a chasm
And jumping is the only way across
Those who seek are never lost
