…is my favorite line from the movie, “Face Off”. I’m just saying.
I had one too many cappuccinos, and this little ditty did materialize in my insane brizain. It may not mean anything, but seems rife with possibilities for deconstruction.

Piper’s Prize

Pete Piper Packed an Uzi,
Squeezed the trigger, wasn’t woozy

Spun around within a crowd
causing noises, oh, so loud.

Clip ran empty, bullets spent,
to the Pen Red Peter went

Fed’ral Judge did think it fair
that Piper’s feet should dance on air

Now under daisies Piper Lies
his Uzi a prime eBay prize.

I blame my apparent fondness for this simple sort of rhyme on Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes, who used them to spout such silliness as

How many boards would the Mongols hoard
If the Mongol hordes got bored?
