I’m inclined to feel dejected
side view wants the unexpected –
Should I be the person who
Sneaks behind and yells out ‘Boo!’?
Or perhaps what I should do
Is insert something that
Simply doesn’t scan or rhyme at all?
German hen-fruit, tapped with beak,
Possibly is what I seek?
Hun-eggs-pecked-at, that would be –
No, it fails quite dismally.
Should I maybe now explain
All about our sudden rain –
Some descriptive prose it warrants
How it’s coming down in torrents?
Or that a school gave me a call
Re my books – and bought them all …?
(With some thought, though, none of this –
I’ll just give this one a miss.)
