The anti-lyrics

I can only hope most of you are smart enough to understand why this (as posted from, below) is so damned funny.

"THE QUESTION of what would happen if poets and playwrights wrote works whose titles were anagrams of their names is one that has been insufficiently studied in the past ..."

WE LONG BONY DORKS::GWENDOLYN BROOKS

The Mathletes.
Seven in the Computer Lab.

We long bony dorks. We
Real big on quarks. We

Quote Python lines. We
Know arcs and sines. We

Not good at sports. We
Black socks with shorts. We

Beat up at noon. We
Out-earn you soon.

And I am reminded that I want to be in a book club again, as I need to read Don Quixote and The Inferno and some William Blake but won't do it unless I'm forced to.

Wow. The time all that must have taken...

I remember a Joyce Kilmer parody from one of my reading books in elementary school. The first verse was as follows:

I think that I shall never ski
Again against so hard a tree,
A tree whose limbs are firmly pressed
In bas relief against my chest.

But hell if I can remember the rest or find it on the internets. :-P

I thought there was at least one highly literate person on my flist! Glad you enjoyed this ...

And your poem is very funny.
