The plant right away struck my fancy;
The odds of encountering it? Chancy:
Just in woods. The expert
Called it false miterwort,
But everyone knew it as Nancy.

Cheap, I know, but I've been a Beatles fan since they showed up on the CBS Evening News in 1963. Can't be helped.

We trudged through a light snowy dusting
To a pool hall, decrepit and rusting,
In wintry Nebraska,
Or maybe Alaska.
That populous den was disgusting.

In the coal furnace fissures had sprung,
Spreading sulfurous gas us among.
The crack menaced luminous
With miasma bituminous,
Pouring vapors of death to each lung.

Far be it for me to bitch and complain
I dance at funerals I sing in the rain
But complain-composite
Has been rhymed, hasn't it
Did your train of thought leave without the train? laugh

At fashion’s last thing you should jump -
It’s bad form to dress like a frump -
But when ‘cutting a rug,’
If your pants are too snug,
You’ll be over-displaying your rump

Maybe so. I wondered when I typed it, did a search and didn't see it, so I posted it. I'm in the best company (Hi, Rhuby!), repeating myself.

The Physiotherapy Section
Has torture machines for election.
Any one that you pick
Makes you sore, weak, or sick,
But purportedly helps you with flexion.

Thanks, Candy. Please tell them that I really do respect their work, but that everything is a fair target for the sake of a rhyme.
