That's OK, the only people who could possibly appreciate my song are me. It has its own unique sprung rhythm a la a demential Hopkins and the last line follows my patented technique that I call "break off", wherein another concluding line is called for by all the known forces of poetry and song-writing, a prosodic call that I purposefully turn my back on and thus call attention to the line itself. Though highly criticized as simply bad writing, this technique has won me accolades among many inebriates.

I thought it was a good baptist gospel rejoicing rhythm. The only things missing were the handkerchief to wipe your brow with and the "de uh's" as you sucked wind at the end of every three or four words. I think this is one of the best to date and so QUICKLY constructed too. Bravo Skipper!
