The Asylum on the Hill

Burnt on his last day at work …

           Some individuals might suggest that the years of toil in this wretched Asylum, that was Burnt’s  home for so long, had caused a significant change in Burnt’s general appearance and hence his gaunt look …
But his close relatives unfortunately know otherwise



In this rat-infested house

Lived a disillusioned Mouse

Whose diversion when perturbed

Was the written English word

He began each day by playing:

‘Choose a word, a line, a saying;

Multiply it by illogic

And divide its logarithm

By the sum of its iambic

To the base of rhyme and rhythm’

With himself.
