I must not filk.
Filk is the thread killer.
Filk is the little post that causes total obreferentialness
I will face my filk.
I will let it rhyme over me.
And when the tune has passed, I will set the MP3 player to it's path.
Where the filk has gone there will be nothing.
Only rhyme will remain.

Yours in total sincerity,
