    Ode to Tony
    (Or Sonnet or Posie or Dittie or Whatever)

    Tony-o, Oh Tony-o...
    Wherefore art thou Tony-o?
    Donít listen to all that baloney-o!
    Without you here...
    its very clear..
    The neps are going dry
    from tears falling as they cry.
    The vines are limp and sagging
    and the seedling growth is lagging.
    We fumble with our potting
    and our pitchers are all rotting.
    The forums are rife with sin,
    without a BONK now and then.
    Without you here to teach,
    Forum life is a such a beeeech!
    I hope its just a rumor
    Ďcause we sorely need your humor!
    Youíve got us in a dither,
    so please, you must reconsider.
    Iíve done my best to beg and cry,
    to keep you here and not to fly.
    Youíre highly respected, you must know,
    So please donít leave us, please donít go!


    We love you and miss you Tony! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    (Hey...didn't that last part sound like the Pets.Com sock puppet...singing "Please don't go!.." ?? I loved that sock puppet.

    Put a sad smiley in your sig if you want Tony back

    I would like to second plant a kiss.
    I just read that Tony has left the forums. I am very disturbed to hear this.
    The opportunity to benefit from his knowledge, experience, is the main reason I joined these forums. I'm not sure they will be the same without Him around.

    I want to let Tony know that there are many of us here that really appreciate your time, and advice, and don't want to see you go.

    Same goes for all the other mods here, and the owner of this place. I for one apprecciate your time, advice, and this site.

    Thankyou.
    Robin

    Whose nepenthes these are I think I know.
    His has left the forums though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his neps fill up with bugs.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a sundew near
    Between the greenhouse and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound's the cries
    Of venus flytraps victims: flies.

    The neps are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And plants to buy before I sleep,
    And plants to buy before I sleep.
