The ones that haven't been posted so far, and are mine to put up; Joy Green did a great job with Copperhead and Sto Lat. It's not my place to post those - I'll leave it up to her to do it if she wants to.

Anyway, here are the all-new ones, first performed at the Con, covering Uberwald, Ephebe, Djelibeybi and Pseudopolis. I'm proudest of Uberwald, I think, but Ephebe got the best reception:

Pseudopolis
===========
TTTO God Save the Queen (or My Country, 'tis of Thee, for 'merkins)

Glorious Pseudopolis,
Mythic metropolis,
Name on a list -
Nebulous, ill-defined,
Figment of Terry's mind
Soon we expect to find
You don't exist.

We don't know where you are
But in the books so far
Rumours persist;
Sometimes a page contains
Ref'rence to your domains
But still our hunch remains -
You don't exist.

And that's all.
