“A Terrible Thing to Lose, a Muse:
Unless, of Course, one Benefits
From Morose thus induced!
Because apart from a Muse itself
Sadness will do to spark a poem,
a song, a lyric, a work or two!
A Terrible thing to Lose, a Muse,
But Yourself, all that greater of a Prize
And all that much more a Nuisance to Lose,
And all that much more a Nuisance to Loose,
But sometimes, all it take, is a Muse a-Loose!”
Eh, not too amusing.
Can she hear me be
loved into heat
and potential life to be!
The Greater Mylon Grows in China.
Now you know.
One of these is not a real word.
“Shploop” goes the Cory Cat
And dances a Cory Jig
The bowl, his only theater
All of life a gig.
Do you know who won
The Battle of Towton
of the War of Roses,
of the Island of Britain?
Who’s to say,
Who’s to know?
But Thank You for Thinking So!
