Mainly Mania, 10

(obsession doggerel)

One Thing … monomania

Yes, Ahab had it—to the max—
All due to Moby-Dick’s attacks.

And so did Stanley—he’s the one
Who searched for Dr. Livingstone.

And Custer was not really through
Until he met some swarms of Sioux.

And then there was poor Elmer Fudd,
Whose hunt for Bugs was such a dud.

And I loved cookies chocolate-chipped—
Which took me quickly to my crypt.

The message here (or so I guess)—
It’s not too good when you obsess.
