Jonathan ROBIN (22 September / London)
Mary had a Little Limp
Mary had a little limp
from fall, gymnastics skipping,
she's now obliged to scrape and scrimp
upon MacDonald's tipping.
MacDonald's farm bred little lambs,
that played all day splay skipping,
full circle run poetic iambs
in rhyme that's timely tripping.
In lines offline Macdonalds cram
beef orders, sparsely shipping
shrimp, parsley, horse, as stanza cam
lamb theme on stream grooves gripping.
Grooves lead to rails behooving tram
or hooves as in horse nipping,
removing doubts as on the lam
verse bows out, forelock tipping.
