Washington is known for the apple,
Wisconsin for cheese,
Maine for lobster,
Iowa for corn,
Maryland for crab,
Hawaii for pineapple,
Vermont for maple syrup,
Kansas for wheat,
Massachusetts for cod,
Florida for the orange,
As for Arkansas, just for sooie.
Not exactly a favorite,
“Prepared the way it should have been”
Is in the garbage bin.
Living to suck blood and procreate,
The high jumping flea is really easy to hate.
So instead of fleeing where they mate,
People whose dreams are pie in the sky,
Normally end up grounded
Face down with a mud pie.
The character actor Malachi Throne
Once had a guest appearance on “Batman.”
Not then knowing him from Adam,
When the credits appeared with his name,
I thought that it was malarkey thrown.
Lacking the concentration,
If not the fine arts appreciation,
Heaven forbid, I’d rather watch Oprah
Than painfully sit through any opera.
This being said without any diva-iation.
He of the fashionable long hair,
Unfashionably attacked French society
With a sharp polemicist satirical wit,
Repeatedly naysayingly displaying he was no reactionary twit.
Nor was he a dope,
As from his unique iconoclastic slope
He was the day’s leading philosophe.
Of the thousands that I have viewed
I’ve never met a specimen of nephrite,
Whether unworked, polished, carved,
Bookended, treed, or jeweled,
Ranging from all shades of green plus creamy white,
That I didn’t like.
Which only proves that it’s microcrystallinely unimaginabled
For me to become jaded about jade
However it is displayed.
