Else - Poem by Douglas Scotney

I found no 'else' in the index
of my rhyming dictionary.

There's a good rhyme for 'else'
in the short form of Chelsea;
and one in my nephew Kelsey,
minus the y.

'But what a pity, ' poets sigh,
'Celts, belts,
Weidenfelds and Roosevelts:
what rhymes!
Gabrielle's bells and bagatelles:
what times!

if 'else' were 'elts' and 'ells'.'
