You Fancy Bugs in Iambs, You
All Dressed Up and Going Nowhere
Why, you can jitterbug here on demand!
Or boogie, bebop, hop, or cut a rug!
Or strum a banjo down in Cotton Land!
Or blow on any jug with any slug!
Or rock a concert out at every gig!
Or sing a cabaret in a beret!
Or holler Pagliacci in a wig!
Or croon a tune and croon it your own way!
Or paint a modern abstract when in debt!
Or Herod Hamlet or a Hamlet ham!
Or method act and truly break a sweat!
Or be the punning sonneteer "I am"!
Or in a buggy G-string find romance--
With daddy long-legged love in antsy pants!
