mad thanks to...

the mad ones that seussed it up on 02.06.08.
a wonderful blend of the usual unusual mad ones
swirling wonderfully with some brand-spanking new mad ones
who came to absinthe lounge this past 1st wednesday
for mad swirl open mic night...


Oh! The Madness did Flow!

They had words in their heads/They had songs that did groove
The mic was wide open/for which ever they'd choose.
They were the Mad Ones/And they showed and they flowed.
And THEY were the Ones/who made the mic glow.

We called all the mad/poets, musicians, dancers and singers
miscellaneous mad ones/(but had no Elvis dead-ringers)
They showed what they got/and they did what they do
we were ready and waiting/as the madness ensued.

(there's even more madness on roll-over!)
