Mainly Mania, 19

(obsession doggerel)

Deep Fears: bathymania

Poseidon? Bathymania!?
Oh, don’t be such a creep!
Of course the ocean God is fond
Of all things dark and deep!

Would you say Noah Webster was
Too mad about the word?
To say such things is ludicrous,
Embarrassing, absurd.

Besides, our own obsessions—from
The weird to weirder, too—
Make absolutely perfect sense
To us, if not to you.
