Loc: Louisville, Kentucky
A whale I am, I admit;
The name is a dismaying fit;
But I ain't no Norwegian,
My older collegian--
Now swishing my skirts, I will git.

My electric was off for two days
I couldn't get online to metaphrase
Now Jackie's a whale?
She wants a goat, not a male?
Is this some new kind of craze?

Candi may be a bit of a dandy
But if liquor made him quicker
-- oh my poor ticker.

It is a rare and marvelous thing to be a latinate criticaster.
But I, unfortunately, am no unerring polylingual.
