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.


Love it, Peter.

Writers who have no more to say, say it with metaphor
Thus Faulkner('tho dead) will live obscure forevermore
But when I say "mess of greens"
What I mean is "mess of greens"
And folks in Aberdeen know 'zactly what I mean, fer shore

And in Aberdeen "fer shore" (for sure) rhymes with "metaphor" smile

DEGAGE - DEMONETTE

from the Endangered English Dictionary:

degage (day-ga-ZHAY) casual or easygoing
wearing a plaid cap with a degage air

demonette (DEE-mo-net) a little demon
a wild younger son who is a demonette in training

A debauched demonette dégagé
Drank a dozen dual daiquiris a day.
"Though my devilry's horrible,
Described as deplorable,
I define it as 'deemed déclassé.'"

*bows deeply* Thank you. It took tons of time to tune!
Now, if I could just remember to update the subject line…

The men of one Iron Age tribe
Would here and there neatly inscribe
A V-sign, quite small,
On an inner cave wall –
A symbolic two-fingered gibe?

The patter of feet which are tiny
Across floors that are polished and shiny,
Though we hold the sound dear
And so pretty to hear,
Will leave a patina quite grimy
