Subject: RE: REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT POEM
From: Bard Judith
Date: 08 Nov 05 - 09:55 PM

i opened my eyes and looked up at the rain
and it dripped in my head and flowed into my brain
so pardon this wild crazy thing i've just said
i'm just not the same since there's rain in my head

i step very softly i walk very slow
i can't do a handstand or i might overflow
and all i can hear as i lie in my bed
is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head

Two REALLY, REALLY important poems from Spike Milligan

To the lonely sea and sky.
I'm going down to the lonely sea,
To see if my socks are dry.

"The breezes, the breezes,
They blow through the treeses.
They blow the girls' skirtses
Above the girls' kneeses.
The college man seeses
And does what he pleases
And spreads the diseases
Oh Jeezes! Oh Jeezes!"

I know that Woody Guthrie knew that poem, because his song, "Old Chicargo" features a verse about the "breeze that tickles the knees of the little chickadees." It's interesting to see the sources of some of the songs we know and love.

Another example is "Union Maid," which does not start like the clean version of "Red Wing," but instead parallels the bawdy parody. It's obcvious which one Woody had in mind when writing that one.

Oh, so many contributions I have failed to make! First, up by the Edgar A. Guest submission, I should have added my suband's favorite:

I'd rather flunk my Wasserman test
Than listen to a poem by Edgar A. Guest.


Here's an old favorite from my childhood:

I shot an arrow in the air.
It fell to earth I know not where.
I lose more damned arrows that way!



And another, from G.K. Chesterton:

TRIOLET

I wish I were a jelly fish
That cannot fall downstairs;
Of all the things I wish to wish
I wish I were a jellyfish
That hasn't any cares
And doesn't even have to wish

Little Willie from his mirror

(pedant alert!)

The Dorothy Parker poem has been posted twice, 8 years apart, and still not gotten precisely.

Ahem:

"I'd rather fail my Wasserman test
Than read a poem by Edgar Guest." (no 'A'...it ruins the scansion)

(/pedant)

Why pedantry? Because...ummmm... mere memory can fail, and the durned WWW/internet leads to C&P proliferation of slight differences from the original.
(Now, I have different versions of some items above, but there is often no known author and thus no one 'authentic' version.)

I learned Dick Greenhaus' poem about bees as:

"The bee is such a busy soul,
He has no time for birth control.
And that is why, in times like these,
There are so many Sons of B's"

Scholars bicker......

My favourite is Isherwood's 'Common Cormorant' quoted above, but I also like this one:

What a wonderful bird the frog are!
When he stand he sit almost;
When he hop he fly almost.
He ain't got no sense hardly;
He ain't got no tail hardly either.
When he sit, he sit on what he ain't got almost.

Ogden Nash's complete reply to Dorothy Parker was:

The girl who is bespectacled,
She may not get her necktackled,
But safety pins and bassinets
Await the girl who fascinets.

*

Hogamus, higamus,
Men are polygamous.
Higamus, hogamus,
Women, monogamous.

Often attributed to D. Parker, but actually a good deal older.

*

Piss and fart,
Sound at heart.

*

When in danger or in doubt,
Run in circles, scream and shout.

*

Life is a jest, and all things show it:
I thought so once, and now I know it.

*

Suck, squeeze, bang, blow.
Internal combustion makes it go.

*

If I were a cassowary
On the sands of Timbuctoo,
I would eat a missionary,
Coat and bands and hymnbook too.

*

Army version:
Six days shalt thou work and do all thou art able:
The seventh, the same, and clean out the stable.

Navy version:
Six days shalt thou labor and do all that thou art able,
And on the seventh holystone the deck and scrape the cable.

*

Life is ever, since man was born,
Licking honey from a thorn.

*

Always some flakes rise,
But it is correct to say
The snow is falling.

*

Said Sir Christopher Wren,
"I am going to dine with some men.
If anyone calls,
Say I am designing St Paul's."

Said Sir James Dewar,
"I am smarter than you are.
None of you asses
Can condense gases."

Said P. A. M. Dirac,
"I will *not* call it a brac."
Like many Brits,
He had a thing about tits.

I like the "Ruthless Rhymes" of Harry Graham(1874 -1936). Here's a quick selection:

"There's been an accident!" they said,
"Your servant's cut in half; he's dead!"
"Indeed!" said Mr Jones, "and please
Send me the half that's got my keys."


Weep not for little Leonie,
Abducted by a French Marquis!
Though loss of honour was a wrench,
Just think how it improved her French!


That morning when my wife eloped
With James, our chauffeur, how I moped!
What tragedies in life there are!
I'm dashed if I can start the car!

Our governess - would you believe
It?-drowned herself on Christmas Eve!
This was a waste, as , anyway
It would have been a holiday.


When Mrs. Gorm (Aunt Eloise)
Was stung to death by savage bees,
Her husband (Prebendary Gorm)
Put on his veil, and took the swarm.
He's publishing a book , next May,
On "How To Make Bee-keeping Pay."

Quite hard to believe a Victorian poet could be so "sick"!
