Arab Uprising: “Fee Fo Fi Fum”

September 18, 2012

But what about those 60,000,000 Mohammedans that are saying “Fee Fo Fi Fum” to the Christian and Jewish world?

Until they are disposed of, it would be foolish to adopt suggestions about reducing airplane production.

One thousand airplanes would do more than 500,00 men on foot or horseback to discourage Arabs on the rampage.

THE NEW VERNACULAR

By DOUGLAS MALLOCH

People often say to me,
Members of the laity,
They suppose a poet knows
A life of little gaiety,
But it’s not laborious,
Really rather glorious,
For the times are full of rimes,
Many meritorious.

We have inebriety,
And the planned society,
Processing, and ev’rything
In a wide variety,
Such a multiplicity,
Ev’ry eccentricity,
Brand new words in droves and herds
To jingle with felicity.

Yes, we live in wordy days
In these hurdy-gurdy days,
Richer rimes than in the times
We wrote of spring and birdie days.
Radicals oracular,
Senators spectacular,
Took our dough, and more we owe —
But, gosh, what a vernacular!
