Sondheim on SondHeck # 8 .

This is a parody on Gee Officer Krupke from West Side Story .

   Dear  Doctor  Grumpee
   Nobody  knows
   Why  I'm  hooked  on  this  site
   Writing  poetry  and  prose .
   I  write  sonnet  and  haiku
   Short  tanka  and  monoku
   Golly gee , to  me  it's  poetry flu .

     Gee  Doctor Grumpee , I'm spewing' out  words 
    I  know it  sounds  crazy  and  really  absurd
        I  ain't  no  Shakespeare
      Don't  misunderstand
   This  weird  word-flow  ain't  planned .

         It  ain't planned  ;   It  ain't  planned 
         It  ain't planned  ;   It  ain't  planned
         No.. It  ain't planned .
NURSE ICEMAN ; " His symptoms are so gory ".

SISTER AKSHUN ;" Lemme tell it to the ward " .

NURSE ICEMAN ; " No!  Tell it to the Surgeon " .

   Dear  Surgeon  Flick-Knife
   My words  simply  flowed
   Epigram ,  quatrain
   Tetractys  and  ode 
   Elegy  ballade
   Nonet  and  rhyme
   Suffering  scalpels ! ,  now  I'm  feeling  fine .
