Edgar Allen Poe - The Raven
"Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore"
For Maggie-Me and the Weekly Photoshop Competition group
Created for the WPC Week 146
My thanks to doortoriver for the awesome "Sun and Storm
Clouds" : )
Thanks also to _FXR for the "Open Book"
Thanks also to ~AmahRa58~ for the "Vault"
Once upon a June day bleary, as I flickr'd, My-Stats weary,
Rummaging through uploads many, some perhaps bound for Explore,
While I cringed and sadly suffered, not howe'er because of buffered
Internetly packets; rather due to Image-Bore,
There came unto my browser frame a picture threat'ning to inflame
Deep passions that remind me while I love this Photo-game,
Stepping back from self-completed choice to end up quite [deleted]
I reasoned once again to wonder--Could I yet increase my Score?
Long forsaken Photoshopping, tinting, texturing, and cropping,
'Til my eyelids nearly dropping, Take me to the Sacred Shore
Where brays The Donkey, harmonizing, chorus to my sharp resizing,
All geared toward the realizing of faves from those who still adore,
And in return my comments flowing back to all who visit, knowing
This indulgence builds the Interestingness yet more?
If I once more take a gander, visit, comment, click, and pander,
Can I be a Stats-Expander?
Quoth the Panda, "Evermore."
