From February 2017. A whimsical epistle to a friend, chock-full of private jokes, but as I feel the whimsy might prove infectious even to those not in on the jokes, I'll post it here!




Here Endeth the Lesson

Yoda-coda, sparkling soda,
be my pink champagne:
rumble-jungle, Art Garfunkel,
sing me "Summer Rain"!

Heather-feather, winter weather,
grab the nearest shovel:
Cadillac and Kerouac, please
tidy up that hovel.

Debba-doodle, belly-boodle,
get your fix at Dunkin';
slender, ample, bad example,
time to bring your junk in.

Mostel (Zero), nine-point beer, oh,
dizzy me with antics!
Fascist state or Make It Great? A
matter of semantics.

Mister Riddle, play that fiddle,
hear the tenor bellow:
Catholic "Workah", glad mazurka,
louder than a cello!

Elmer Fitz's greatest hits'll
top the Billboard charts.
Xerxes Riff gets awful stiff while

throwing Red Hat darts!

Yes, I think I'd better sink in-
to the green recliner,
prop my head in someone's bed in

toasty Carolina.

Not only did this make me smile,
Thought this was so cleverly written
Your poem stands out a mile.
May your god go with you Tom.

What wonderful fun! I love the word play. Zero Mostel was such a great comedic actor, thanks for making me smile Uncle.

Not only clever (structure, words, rhymes) but also made me smile. What more could I want at the start of my literary day. :)
