To Her Highness
These here are the facts, very nearly true,
all about this lady I knew who
ate kale. She thought it was good for you.
Of course she grew quite mad, but that's not all,
she grew far less short than she grew tall,
and had more than a little way to fall.
So when she became not wholy sober,
one day, one month, before October,
surprise, surprise ... she toppled ober.
She claimed to be only a clumsy goose
but did she get so tight her gait got loose
from that old familiar juice abuse?
And ought her mother have taught her daughter
to be more erect and grow more shorter
and to eat less kale and drink more water?
