Ahem, ahem.

To those of you who don't know, I've been watching Aladdin.
And I'm in a Filk-writing mood. So I propose...

A [S]peculation Tag
TTTO A Whole New World, Disney's Aladdin

I think we need a tag
One to mark speculations
Tell me, alt.fan, now what do
You think of this suggestion?

It can stop posts like these
If we had a new [S] tag
I just got the idea
From this near-by carrier bag

A whole new tag
A new letter for me and you
So please don't tell me 'no'
Or where to go
Or say I'm only dreaming

A whole new tag
The dazzling [S] you never had
But when I read this here,
It's crystal clear
That now we need a whole new tag for us
(Now we need a whole new tag for us)

Unbelievable threads
Sometimes weird ideas
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through a metaphoric sky

A whole new tag
Don't you dare use it yet
A hundred thousand things to post
Though it'll spoil the note
Aquarion wrote
I can't go back to non-[S] afp

A whole new tag
Every [S] thread surprising
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment exciting
I'll read them every time
'Cause it's sublime
To get to share this whole new tag with you

A whole new tag
That's where we'll be
A thrilling [S]
Won't be a mess
For afp

HTH,
Catrin
