by horace p sternwall

illustration by rhoda penmarq

i wrote a poem to pass the time
it didn't scan and it didn't rhyme
i had absolutely nothing to say
but i went and wrote it anyway

i thought it turned out kind of nice
i looked it over once or twice
i finished it off and set it free
on wings of immortality

o little poem, boil and bubble
at least you kept me out of trouble
maybe you need a little friend
another poem - will they ever end?

That Horace P. is one mean bastard. Licking my wounds, after that blast of truth. Most enjoyable.
