The Most Unlovable Man in the World 3 audio available here: https://soundcloud.com/tom-woodliff/the-most-unlovable-man-inLove Thrives!The last time we spoke I told you about how my life had changed for the better. I had been ridiculed and scorned for years. Never had any self-worth. Never thought about my future. Then, one evening, an angel from above had been sent to me to inform me that I was indeed loved, after all. I didn't fully understand what it all meant at first, but I was overwhelmed with gratitude to say the least. A year has gone by, and I wanted to share with you some wonderful news. If you'll recall, I was raised for a number of years in an orphanage. The director there was a cruel man who beat me often, all because I was ugly and different. After my rebirth, as I like to call it, I got to thinking about all the orphans still left in the world. So I took my severance pay, along with money I had saved over the years performing in

The Ogre and the Leprechaun 2 (Friends Forever)audio available here: https://soundcloud.com/tom-woodliff/the-ogre-and-the-leprechaun-2Now Charlie O'Hanlon was no average leprechaun. He never stayed in one place for too long, a bit of a rover he was. And, truth be told, he felt as if he'd stayed in "ogre land" quite long enough, thank you. It was time to say goodbye to his new ogre friend, Landru. He'd spent the past few months teachin' Landru how to read, and now that the ogre had the basics of language and grammar down fairly well, it was time to leave. So it was that Charlie gathered his things, includin' his pet newt, and prepared to say his goodbyes. But when Landru learned that his new friend was preparin' to go, he said:"Now wait just one fine minute there me wee friend, I mean, well... we aren't finished with our readin' lessons, now are we?"Charlie replied: "Well now Landru, me ogre friend, you've got the basics down lad. I really feel as though ye can take it on yer own from he
Pheromone PhenomenonThe scent of love was in the air that moonlit summer night.We danced the dance of love until we saw the morning light.We promised that we'd save our love until the wedding day.How many times we fought temptation off it's hard to say.The day was blessed, the guests all came, the music was sublime.We said our vows before our God with words that fairly rhymed.But when we danced our first before the eyes of one and all,we realized then and there that it was time to heed the call.We said goodbye to all our guests and headed for the door.The band played on as most remained and tangoed on the floor.The moment that we hit the car the game became engaged.We barely made it to our room, our hormones on a rage.To say the wait was worth it is an understatement, friend.It seemed to us this blissful night would never, ever end.The fiery storm of ecstasy kept thund'ring 'til the dawn.To see the pleasure in her eyes confirmed her heart I'd won.They say that love's just chemicals, perhap

The Raven's Lament (part II)* now available on audio here: https://soundcloud.com/tom-woodliff/the-ravens-lament-part-ii(Ahem! Is this thing on? Hello? Testing one two one two. Poe was a dip, Poe was a dip, testing...)Good evening!Barrymore T. Raven III here, at your service. As many of you may remember, I recently broke my 170 year silence to try and set the record straight on humanity's erroneous view of Ravendom. Thanks to a certain poet (who for the moment shall remain nameless) many, if not most of you, were under the impression that ravens are brainless dimwits who have nothing better to do than say "nevermore" over and over again (for full transcript click here: http://fav.me/d7db1kh). In addition, I had hoped to dispel the notion that ravens are dark, mysterious, and evil by posting the very first (known) raven poem (authored by yours truly) entitled: My fuzzy pillow (for full posting click here: http://fav.me/d7e63sx).Well, two things. Number one, I'm s
