No. Looking at the Gudmundsson painting everyday for three years would have made me a better person. How wonderful.
But no, instead my wall spoke the lanquid pathos of three skinny long-legged fatigued dancers without tutu's painted in a style that could be described as latter-day art deco.
Even today I am depressed. frown

The scoreboard starts at birth on the hour
The question; is your life yours or our?
All good and bad deeds
We score to our needs
And at death the scoreboard we will scour

SCOREBOARD – SCOUR


The washing contest’s under way,
There’s prizes to be won;
Tubs and soap-cakes boldly lay
On trestles ‘neath the sun.
No marks yet on the scoreboard:
Laundresses darkly glower
And, hunched up o’er their wash-boards,
The dirty vestments scour.

FOLDER - FOLIAR

I've a folder of hapax legomena
And other rare verbal phenomena;
Its great foliar size
Gives much happy surprise,
Like the term henpecked husbands use: "Domina".

POSSIBLY – POSTHUMOUS

I've been struggling, almost from my birth
To write words of some lasting worth.
Possibly this rhyme game
Is my ticket to fame;
Otherwise, I'll have posthumous dearth.

CROC – CROSS-CHECK

I wonder: just what is "a croc?"
Terra cotta pot, chipped by a rock?
Before I cross-check
I'll stick out my neck:
It's a 'gator that's going "Tick-Tock!"

Where to go from here? What is my choice?
I feel as if I've lost my voice.
You've made us bereft,
No guideword right or left.
I'm thinking that's not very noice!

A remonstrance on me you've served,
I fear that it is well deserved!
My mind was in foment
From a Senior Moment:
I think I was slightly unnerved.

Forgive him, tromboniator. Anyone who concocts a "croc" as a "crocodile who goes tick tock" needs a well-earned rest.

Most men go their entire lifes without such an exalted construction.
