  1. Beautifully done… But why peril? Why can it not be something else? Of course, wanting it to be something else does not mean that’s the way it’s meant to be 😉

    • Peril has two syllables. I could have used “Flushed away by wind” (iffy on the syllable count) or “Annihilation” or “Total destruction” (but then I couldn’t include wind) or “Breaking with the wind”, etc. But “Peril waits on wind” seemed more poetic. Thanks, Dale.

      • I thought we determined that you can play with your syllables as you see fit?
        I think it does sound perfectly poetic!

      • Still need to try and keep those syllabic verses in line and make sure they are down for the count.

      • I wish I was as funny and witty as old Dangerfield was. He could rattle off the one-liners.

      • I didn’t care much for his movies, but he was a stitch on Johnny Carson, where I saw most of his routines.

      • A lot of comedians are like that. I could only take people like Robin Williams and Jim Cary in small doses. Some of my favorite comedians were Flip Wilson, George Carlin, Cheech & Chong (I didn’t like C&C’s movies), George Burns, Tim Conway, etc. I don’t like most of the contemporary comedians. Iliza Shlesinger is clever and funny, and Brad Williams is a stitch.

      • This is true. I loved Robin Williams as an actor, I never saw a whole set of his stand-up act, so I don’t know. Jim Carrey – depends on the movies because he can also take up too much space! George Carlin was brilliant. George Burns, Tim Conway – classics! I don’t know Iliza Shlesinger or Brad Williams…
