I Am The Very Model #4


I am the very model of the pop in popularity

I’m consistently consistent as a postman’s regularity

I’m never lost for words, I am by far the word-i-est

One look at my physique, you’ll agree I am the sturdiest


Been told by many lovers they adore my similarity

To Shakespeares Romeo they discern familiarity

 Romeo had only Juliette, short-sighted and monogamous

My D N A informs me that’s sexually anomalous


I supervised Al Einstein in his work on relativity

Electrified Tom Edison with advice on electricity

My expertise was put to use on Henry Ford’s ignitions

Being shy and very humble I asked for little recognition


Not to overwhelm you, I’ve toned my exploits down a lot

Many of my greatest thoughts my brilliant brain has just forgot

Now you’ve read this modest understated transcript of my legacy

I hope it hasn’t overwhelmed you with my obvious supremacy

I enjoyed the rhyme and flow of this, it was very good. But then, you already knew that, didn't you? ;)

I am overwhelmed by your humility Stan, but as my dear old mother said "you have to blow your own trumpet." You've sure got a lot of puff.
