Runcible Doom

Sunday, 09 December, Year 4 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu
    The Beast of the Mist with a lemonade twist
       And the Very Flat Carpet of Yore
    In very great hurry proceeded to catch
       A boat they had already missed.

    The Carpet of Yore, his fringe very sore
       And his drawings especially flat
    Exclaimed in disgust, with a shade of distrust
       Oh, what a bore! And grumbled and swore.

    His good friend the Beast proposed then a feast
       And forthwith hurried to gather
    A cat and some fowl and a tamburine whole
       Wood shavings, glue and a good chunk of yeast

    The Very Flat Carpet brought over a garnet
       And various pieces of tin in his pocket
    Smoked cheese, Insalata Caprese
       And nary a quart of Dover Street Market.

    With this they sat down at the edge of the town
       And danced and pranced and then ate
    All that good stuff and then had some snuff
       Dressed up in gowns all ruffled and brown

    Then the Carpet all round, not a little bit flat
       Looked at the Beast which had muchly increased
    And giggled and fell over dead.
       This is the Risk of the Bisque : it ends in a twist.
