* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Sacred Clown Karaoke
« on: September 06, 2020, 10:14:08 am »
Sage and cedar
Perfume a warm wind
A clarinet note drags out across the Badlands
like smoke smudged across the Sky
As the Stars dance within the Medicine Bowl
Sacred Singers gather
bringing Wisdom and Folly
Balance and Laughter
Medicine to heal the soul

“Change! Change unending I sing!
Eternal are
Irony
Chaos
Unity
Hubris
Painful lessons, yes
Keep moving
Relax, kids
I bring my bag of tricks, laughter
to the World’s vast community. 
Wise Fool, Wild Sage
Opposites inverted
Good and Evil
Life and Death
Holy and Profane
Heart knows the Truth
Hidden in a den of lies
Fire Thief, Blanket Shaker
Be mindful, but lighten up
Change is the only constant
you can count on
Trickster, World Maker
Get messy, make mistakes
I dance to my own heart’s beat
I’ll hand you Wisdom on one side
then fall to my own conceit 
Hold an innocent place within your heart
Trust! For I am both the Illusion
And the Mirror that cannot lie 
For you, oh my den mate
I sing with you
Together
We survive, or die" 

For those new to the game, each poem is inspired by a Teacher found in nature; a star, stone, animal, plant, etc that holds lessons and wisdom for us. Can you guess who is singing?
Wishing you laughter

I'm really going out on a limb with this one, but I'll suggest...the Roadrunner's nemesis?
