Mainly Mania, 28

(obsession doggerel)

Jumper: catapedamania

As soon as he could stand, he jumped—
And soon his body, bruised and lumped,

Bespoke his fondness for the leap.
Much later on, he bought a Jeep

And outdoor clothing—just the best—
For now he’d picked his final test:

That canyon Grand—so vast and broad,
But also deep. They’d all applaud

When he jumped to the canyon floor,
Then walked back up to do some more.

It didn’t quite work out like that:
He jumped and landed—loud ker-SPLAT!
