    Loved the way the poem ends:
    'And so 'twill be when I'm aground
    These yearly duns will still go round,
    While other bards, with frantic quills,
    Shall and these annual bills! ; :)
    Yes, @Savita Tyagi, 'we all are entitled to express our irritations! ' - Well said! :)

    Forget annuals talk about monthly bills now and as for onions and chips look at weekly grocery bills! Would be monumental to irk Twain aground! But we all are entitled to express our irritations! (Report)Reply

    i've read lots of twain but never a poem by him. not surprising though he should channel his irritation into a bit of witty verse. -gk (Report)Reply
