Random Poem:

What The Dickens

Being a huge consumer of Dickens,
I laid foundations for my world view
pursuing  eccentricity
through  chapters of his books.
No easy task to sit up, night after winter night
boiler defunct, mercury plunging out of sight.
I suffered the good fortune to always  expect Spring,
so like Micawber my faith knew no bounds,
feeling certain i had  talent for something.
My undoing? I could not coax it round
