Marmalade Haus


In a Rat- invested Haus

Lived a disillusioned Maus
Whose diversion, when perturbed
Was the written English word
He devised the art of 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 ‘imself.

My! He was lonely
With each every hour
With perversity was solely occupied with etymology
and deviate philology

Analysing quaint abstractions
(Though he was quite often trite)

But the sad thing was his passion
For the esoteric fashion
Of inventing aphorismsWilly – nilly all the day

These included pithy maxims
(Which he signed with his initials)

And did cause High Church Officials
to reflect on their profession.

He inverted hyperglyphics
controverted Mesolithic
Rearranged each preposition
Conjugating as he wrote

Interchanged the grammar syntax

Rearranged the nounal  endings

And devised the adjectival

Formulating on the trot

Took to postulating epithets

Writing strict and overfly

More and more he grew obtuse

Finding less and less excuse

For forgetting ;

in a trance

Eyesight failing

Al things paling

Into insignificance

Why and when and who and what

Answers he had quite forgot

When and what and who and why

Query how we live and die

Who and why and what and when

(Make a listing  1 to 10)

Why and when and what and who

Knowledge elevates the few

These invalid rogatives

these bald interrogatives

Time removed and age defined

Mouse was losing cells in line

Changed from lofty rhetoric

Manners grew intemperate

Write becoming ill -defined

Thoughts were loose xxx mind

More deranged and loose of word

Found that life was quite absurd

Silence came and with it calm

Fresh contentment as a balm
