‘This Charlton Life’ (the rambling thoughts of a relatively new Lifer!)

THE 🗡️🐟 EXPLAINS!

I surfaced a couple of months or so back,
Just after I'd had to stop running,
Having pains in my back, my plan of attack,
Was to rest, but it wasn't that cunning.

The weeks since I stopped haven't been easy,
As those used to running will know,
It's no fun being laid up and injured,
And the self doubts soon start to grow.

Finding I had too much time on my hands,
Being frustrated, I turned to my wife,
I said to her "What do you think I should do?"
And she answered "Well join Charlton Life!"

So I registered creating my username,
Hoping fish puns were not out of fashion,
I hadn't a clue what I was going to write,
But I followed the threads with a passion.

I then took the plunge and started to post,
And somewhat bemused my wife looked,
But she could tell that I really enjoyed it,
And it's obvious now that I'm hooked.

I'm swimming with big fish in here though,
In their terms, I'm more of a sprat,
The most peculiar thing I've seen mentioned so far,
Being a reference to Schrodinger's cat!
(appeared unexpectedly during the Garnergate Comms Saga)

I'm amazed by the number of experts that post,
On most matters someone knows the score,
If looking for intuitive insight for instance,
There's a poster who's name rhymes with sure!

When it comes to house buying analogies,
A certain Bond villain's our main man,
But as his inputs been sadly limited of late,
I find past posts of them where I can.

There are some who's glasses are half empty,
You can tell that they like a good moan,
But when it comes to being consistently miserable,
There's a golfer in a class of his own.

I've learned much since I started posting,
And was starting to write down a list,  
But when's all said and done, the one golden rule,
Is never to post when you're pissed.

Now that I've started to run again,
I'm likely to be on here a bit less,
But I'm still finding time, to keep posting online,
So you're stuck with me now, I guess.

    Nice to see the Mods have brought back the initiations - Very good SwordFish ;)
  • Yeh, but what about the "Would Ya" or "Whose Rack" threads, the good stuff?

    If there's a "Whose Rack" thread, it's clearly not getting the attention it deserves as I've yet to see it 🤪
  • A poem on CL that actually scans. Who’d have thunk it. 
    But maybe more running is a good thing 😉

    Whose, not who's.

    It's all spoiled now  ;)

    I misread it as "Whores Rack"at first, conjuring up unwanted images of Princess Glamour 😎

  • Great post, Swordfish. I doff my carp to you, sir.

    @Six-a-bag-of-nuts - Couldn't resist having a quick listen to some of this last night. Hmm.. bit of an acquired taste,  but wouldn't have looked out of place as an act headlining on the Fast Shows "Jazz Club"

    I'll be honest mate, I've never heard it.
    I have heard a couple of Tom Waits tunes and I think I probably switched to another station.
    That album title though has always stuck in my mind, it is so random. 👌 Nice!

    Correct?

    Well no actually, Selma Hyek bollock tingler extraordinaire...

    I will go hunting the old thread and revive it.  The added bonus being it really winds up the right people on here!

    On your head be it 🤣 I wouldn't want to be held responsible for attracting the attention of the WOKE BRIGADE, but don't mind me! 😎
