    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
