Treasure Island

Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Abbreviation


There’s a drug, now the rage, called Viagra
It’s become famous far and wide
As it’s used from Waltham to Niagara
And over the great divide

“What’s the cause of such appreciation”
I asked an appreciative wife
“It lengthened my husband’s abbreviation
And gave us a more satisfying life”

I asked another young lady
Who seemed happier then most
Her answer was not a bit shady
As she drank to Viagra a toast

There’s no reason to shorten a good thing
It just makes its owner unfit
Ask any couple having a good fling
They won’t want it shortened a bit

So to you, the Viagra creator
For stretching abbreviated gear
You are mankind’s greatest elate-or
And deserve our unabbreviated cheer

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
