INSULATE INTANGIBLE

It's important to insulate wires
To guard against shocks, shorts and fires.
With wireless (non-frangible,
Safe and intangible)
You can forget about pliers.

SCHOLAR - SERENE

I once knew a Ten-o'Clock Scholar
Who was never hot under the collar
We all thought him serene
Till a thinking machine
Took his job, with a hood and a holler!

When I was at school we learned Craft;
I remember the other kids laughed
When I sandpapered wood
Much more than I should,
And the teacher yelled: "Scrap it you're daft!"

Doc Frankenstein's nurse, named Babette,
Dribbled HCl from a burette.
The corpse stared to bubble,
Rubbed its palm o'er its stubble,
Mumbled, "Babs, I need a cigarette."

My chance of survival was low
When a street tramrail caught my shoe's toe;
But although I was stuck,
I had some good luck,
For the trams on that day were quite slow.

In the vestry the clerics are dight
In canonicals dusky or bright.
The diaconate's kit
Would never befit
An archiepiscopal rite.

Some youths made a rowdy incursion,
But the innkeeper's timely inversion
Of two of their chairs
Took them quite unawares,
And spoiled their pub-crawling excursion.

A genius, most people think,
Needs constant advice from a shrink.
One such used to glide
Round my college wild-eyed,
But that was entirely through drink.

A shawm will be made out of wood
With a reed reinforced by a hood.*
With its double reed, shallow
It sounds rather sallow;
An ill wind that no one blows good.

*also called the pirouette. See Wikipedia, here,

"Post description in bakeries, as she is a known cake eater."

King Arthur has flour, Sir Galahad;
Whole Foods offers flowers, Bromeliad.
A delicate happening, cake, chocolaty brown;
One can not wear such a heavy crown.
Nonetheless, she sighed, "Best I ever had."

Shucks, I didn't bring my dictionary. Would someone please pick two new words for me, in my stead? TIA wink
