Ezra, This is Silly Stuff (or) Why Willie Moved Away.

~

So my friends in Alaska,

as they like to say,

you don’t come here often,

out to this way.

~

No.

No way.

No way Jose.

I don’t know ’bout you,

but I think it’s no se.

~

Rime me a riddle,

rhyme me a rime;

if no one can get it,

it’s time to suck lime.

~

Silly Willie,

he used to live here;

the last time I saw him,

he was living right there.

~

And now, that we’re finished,

it’s time to return —

Tell me the difference

twixt a dyke and a berm.

~

One can be concrete,

the other just dirt;

fall down from one

and you’re bound to get hurt.

~

Rhyming and timing

is different than meter;

if I to lose one,

I’d rather lose neither.

~

The iambic pentameter,

may just go away,

if Ezra Pound

ever gets his own way.

~

  1. Thanks, Marvin. I’m nicely cheered by your humour – time for lights out now. Ps Thanks for commenting on ‘Summit’. And I’ve skimmed through your genealogy . . . it is extensive. Mine only goes back to 1570!
    best wishes
