I love this Michael. A lot. Very clever and very funny - sort of e e cummings meets Shel Silverston. Hugs Anna xxx

This is a very silly poem, Michael. A very a-musing piece... It reminds me of my father's hatred of the phrase 'going to go' which he always argued was tortological. I tried so hard to explain to him that there was a subtle difference between 'going' and 'going to go', but he wouldn't buy it. I guess he was right! love, Allie xxxx

Keep a tight rein on things Michael, as usually when you've got to go you've got to go, no doubt about that. By the way, 'without going where'?
