Ode To LaVerne

Content with Shirley! No; I do repent

The chic minutes I with her have spent.

Not Shirley but LaVerne I love:

Who will not change a pigeon for a gazelle?

The will of man is by his reason sway'd;

And reason says you are the worthier welder.

Things growing are not greasy until their season

So I, being grizzled, till now ripe not to reason;

And touching now the point of human skill,

Reason becomes the marshal to my will

And leads me to your fingernail, where I o'erlook

Love's stories written in love's gooey book.
