Wingman has very small, delicate, childlike hands... that's actually creepier than the rest of the pages implications, and that's REALLY saying something...

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

Forgive me, the first thing that came to mind was

Moses supposes his toeses are Roses,
But Moses supposes erroneously,
Moses he knowses his toeses aren't roses,
As Moses supposes his toeses to be!
Moses supposes his toeses are Roses,
But Moses supposes erroneously.

Which is distinctly less deep, but a lot harder to say...

And less creepy, given the circumstances.

Also, Moses needs to be medicated, methinks.

You mean

Moses has loadses of Nembutal doses
As Moses composes erratically
Moses he knowses he must take his doses
Or he's taken to electroshock therapy

Oh, that's how you wanna throw down, is it? Because I brought the rock.

I saw a bus marked XANADU
And climbed aboard to ride right through
To see the great Kubla's pleasure-dome
And all his world of polychrome.
With eager eyes, I once or twice
Glimpsed golden towers of strange device
And caught, or thought I caught, the sound
Of Alph's vast river underground

Despite of all the driver said
That moved me much to strike him dead,
He told us why, as on we flew,
The Khan had rationed honey-dew
And even clapped a ceiling price
On malted milk of Paradise.
With Kubla's frosty caves in sight,
He lectured on the troglodyte
And made such talk I couldn't hear
The horns of Elfland blowing clear.

Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread.

Awearied much, the bell I pressed,
Leaped to a bank of thyme to rest,
Then laughed to see my dream come true,
For, lo, I was in Xanadu;
As Kubla Khan came riding by
With press of urchins all about
His golden court and goblin route
But when the Abyssinian maid
Her dulceimeric music played,
I raised a daemon-lover shout --
The driver stopped and threw me out.
This much I learned in Xanadu:
"CsH5OH eschew."

I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

"Those who speak know nothing;
Those who know are silent."
These words, as I am told,
Were spoken by Lao-tzu.
If we are to believe that Lao-tzu
Was himself
one who knew,
How comes it that he wrote a book
Of five thousand words?

Okay, I'll bite. Where's that poem from? It's really interesting.

It's an old poem by Roy Davis that I found in the Pocket Book of Humorous Verse, originally published in 1945. There's loads of fun stuff in there, most of which I've never seen elsewhere online.

Yeah, I was really shocked when I googled the poem and nothing came up!

Thanks for the info.

Here's another gem:

To Minerva (from the Greek)

My temples throb, my pulses boil,
I'm sick of Song, and Ode, and Ballad -
So, Thyrsis, take the Midnight Oil
And Pour it on a lobster salad.

My brain is dull, my sight is foul,
I cannot write a verse, or read, -
Then, Pallas, take away thine Owl,
And let us have a lark instead.

-- Thomas Hood

Ha ha! Thanks for sharing that! It's great when they make fun of the classics.

Here's one you'll like, then:

The Bards We Quote

Whene'er I quote I seldom take
From bards whom angel hosts environ;
But usually some damned rake
Like Byron

Of Whittier I think a lot,
My fancy to him often turns;
But when I quote 'tis some such sot
As Burns

I'm very fond of Bryant, too,
He brings to me the woodland smelly;
Why should I quote that "village roo,"
P. Shelly

I think Felicia Hemans great,
I dote upon Jean Ingelow;
Yet quote such a reprobate
As Poe

To quote from drunkard or from rake
Is not a proper thing to do.
I find the habit hard to break,
Don't you?
