Christmas in Fertile Florida
There's a world of difference
between palms and pines, isn't there?
GRANDEUR of a SORT
(a tribute to the blessed spirit of Rabelais)
Grandeur of a sort so rarely seen
Nostrils flare and eyebrows start to raise.
Under no constraint to withhold praise
Harridans and hustlers turn pea green.
Ladies feel the breath stop in their throats;
Looking fixedly at everywhere,
Except the spot where others gape and stare,
While he who has it calmly stands and gloats.
Ogleworthy ones have special rights
Sparking fights whenever they wear tights.
Still they occupy a favored space
Inimitable, above the commonplace
Exhibiting most coveted delights
Half pityingly as they gaze down from the heights.
