Mainly Mania, 15

(obsession doggerel)

Lizzie’s Last Lament: toxicomania

“You poison people!” Lizzie cried.
“It’s slow and boring—those are facts!
I wonder: Have you ever tried
A few quick swings, a sturdy axe?”

Lucrezia just thought a bit,
Her anger hot, right at the brink.
“Well, Lizzie, hmmm … Why don’t we sit?
And just for fun, how ’bout a drink?”
