T for Tricky

I get asked a lot what the heck this "Tricky" thing is all about.
And in honor of the  Fifth of November I thought I'd let Tricky answer for himself (I usually keep his paws off of the keyboard, but I was home sick and delirious with flu and fever today and he got the drop on me. I apologize ahead of time...)
Warning--whatever comes next is Tricky's handiwork please don't coming groaning to me):

Tricky, who or what are you?

...on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.

Ta-da! In truth a humble thespian talent, cast tenuously as both target and trickster by the tarots of fate. This totem, no mere token of theatricality, is a trace of a Time now terminated, taboo. However, this tremendous trip of a bygone troublemaker stands tenacious, and has tendered to teach these thugish and tarnished traitors, trademarking turpitude and tolerating the torridly treacherous and tremendous transgressions of trepidation. The only turnout is toxic; a tribulation, held as a tintinnabulation not thwarted, for the tolls and tariffs of such shall one day triumph the thoughtful and the taintless. Truthfully, this taratur of terms turns most talkative, so let me simply add that it’s truly my good honour to meet you and that you may call me T.

Well, I'm glad we got that cleared up.

This is the original
