Doing the Dishes

I rightly heard tom toms' honey matter pier.
It's from an ancient Hindustani beat:
the tam tams of East India,
changed to accommodate the English,
who never liked our hats.

But pom poms?
Dwarf pommels from Pomerania,
harvested from hoed beds,
to give good cheer?

No clue.


German cheerleaders.
The mind boggles.
