What am I? (9)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Before we leave the young lady from kew -

There was a young lady from kew
A housewife, she knew what she must do
Take up pool
She'd beat them all
Using a broom-handle as a pseudo cue.


A young lad in Kalamazoo
Caused a stink, what a to do
Pogoing with rage
Blink 182 to upstage
He jumped up and played the kazoo

P.S. Being punk rockers they chewed up the sudoku and spat it out.

What's this? I go away for the weekend and suddenly this little competition turned out to be a grand battle and I missed both the exciting last minutes and the award ceremony...? But I'm very happy for the Gold star, PFF and QTip (he works fine).

A light bulb she went on to screw
How many, she asked
To carry this task
Out in the weird world of sudoku?

A lightbulb you want to unscrew
in the weird world of sudoku
to get the job done
there can be only one
or solutions there'll be at least two

Did you mean?

A young lad from Kalamazoo
what comes next is up to you
so take some time
and come up with a rhyme
that includes the word sudoku

As for the young lady from Kew, I think it's time that we all get serious for a while. Sudoku isn't always just about having fun and living in peace and harmony. If misused it can be highly addictive and extremely dangerous. It has the power to turn friends against each other and tear apart families. Here's what happened:

There was a young lady from Kew
with glimmering eyes deep blue
but oh, how she wept
as the one she dear kept
ignored her and solved sudoku

A young lad in Kalamazoo
was stuck in a tough sudoku
when he looked around
this forum he found
and felt himself stuck in a zoo"

There was a young man from somewhere
Who was unable to answer a dare
The riddle-me-ree
Of r-dot-a-e
Had left him up in the air

This frustrated young man from somewhere
Pretended that he didn't care
Said he wouldn't look
While he searched through his books
For the who or the what or the where

Completely the wrong answer, but found this 'rdotae' - at the bottom of this
Sarcophagus from Salona, 425, records purchase a Fl(avia) Vitalia pr(es)b(ytera) sanc(ta) matrona. Also [sace]rdotae on a C5/6 sarc cover and presbiterissa in inscr from Ippona. More complaints about women taking part in liturgy in C6 Gaul.

MCC – that’s obscure! Did you know that the presbytera were the wives of married men who had decided to become clerics and taken a vow of sexual continence afterwards. That must be where the word presbytery comes from - a refuge from wayward women. From the looks of this they didn’t want women in the liturgy either. Hmm.
