On the Quandary of the Poet,
Desperate to Craft Refreshing Novel Rhymes
"Let me see now...
Moon, June, Goon? No!
Moon, June, Prune? No!
Moon, June, Loon? Drat!
Moon, June, Poon! Yes!
That's got it!"
By PAUL HERTELENDY
All the choicest pairs are long since done.
But poetry, my friend, retains long legs to run.
Ill move new themes a mile beneath the sea, with verses maritime,
Assuring Neptunes treasures penned in rhyme,
Following a whole new paradigm.
