Let's see: if we look really carefully, maybe we can find a clue… Aha! Look at this – the last line has the word rub, which is way too close to Rhub to be coincidence.


Or is it?

Things will slowly return to their norm
Now that Isaac’s a tropical storm.
Those who hastily fled
Can exchange cake for bread;
So do not forejudge – it’s bad form!

Mister Rhubarb Commando: Dear Sir:
I sincerely hope you won't demur,
But I'd like to request
Two more words to digest,
To turn into fine literatur.

This is what I think, Mister Tromboniator:

My rub with the Rhub is his claim to be immortal
The Rhub is a limerick machine with an Awad portal
Yet not to forejudge his form
Be him cold or be him warm
If Rhub can prove he is alive then I'll prove he's mortal.

I think you have that the wrong way around jenny jenny
The Rhub is immortal until proved otherwise.

Limerick machines you all seem to be.
Spewing them out takes more time for me.

My omission I beg you’ll forgive
My memory’s just like a sieve!
It is my life’s fetter
But it will not get better
However long I may live!
