    Although this is a nonsense poem, I wrote it with a point: the idea is that you allow yourself to succumb to the mantra of repeating verse (hence a regular breath at line two) and not think about the superficial nonsense - nor to think at all!

    So Ian - don't stop!

    Alternatively - yes it's a joke... (Report) Reply

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
