Gathering Reflection 4: Round the Bonfire

Those who are acquainted with Tom Vetter know that behind the constant geyser of ingenuity, invention, and geo-topological morphery lurks an imp of Daedalian proportions, a punster sans-pareil, a Trickster of the first order. Earlier this year, your fearless editor invited Tom to instigate and host an informal Gathering Campfire Limerick and S'Mores session, and capture what he could (remember...).

We may never know what actually transpired (what happens round the campfire, stays round the campfire), but we do know (1) Tom has a theory of labyrinthine humor, to be explored over the coming year, and (2) limericks (and verse) were produced round that bonfire. Here is a printable one, submitted by Anne Gordon. 

There once was a labyrinth at Chartres,

Whose image went straight to the heart.

She brought us all back,

When we strayed from the track,

Saying “I’m not just a nice work of art.”
