A Walking Play

THE MAG # 239

The soul exists partly in eternity and partly in time." - Marsilio Ficino

Autumn in Maderia by Jacek Yerka

By Spoonerism in a Car

There once was a thing called courtly love
and it could be had at the Renaissance Faire
if you dare.
Characters are-
He- (The Four of Hearts, She- The Queen)

At the Renaissance they have the flags hung out.
She'd become his golden fleece.
Seeing her and biting his lip
yet her lips are zipped.
He lingered a peek at her breasts
admiring a half-formed wish
is this damsel busy
lighting a fire
by her cozy little nook?
This is the fun part
before the end of day and it's pouring with rain
oh dear old Queen
and this Four of Hearts
We hear wedding bells.

As for this poem
I say ho hum swell- you may be bored, and truly screaming and crying
*      *      *      *      *      *
this version you may not be bored, and truly creaming and sighing.

Now by way of Spoonerism

At the Renaissance they have the hags flung out.
She'd become his folden geese.
Seeing her and lighting his bip
yet her zips are lipped.
He lingered a beak at her pests
admiring a half-warmed fish
is this bamsel dizzy
fighting a liar
by her nosey little cook?
This is the pun fart
before the end of day and it's roaring with pain
oh queer old dween
and this whore of farts
We hear bedding wells.
