From the brits and insomniacs -
What celest'l body / have we found? Sun? Moon? / Not yellow nor silver / Blazing blue, tis grundoon -- I got the syllables right, someone else will have to fix the emphasis if I totally botched that.
Gnarl, snarl, cuddle and croon/ under a crinkling sea/ the (something) tosses his silver net, fashioned of sunbeams three.
Oh, obviously. Gnarl, snarl, cuddle and croon/ under a crinkling sea/ the skeleton tosses his silver net, fashioned of sunbeams three.
Then it had better be moonbeams he's tossing, though.
And the waves roll out, and the waves roll in, and the noders come and go, but why the grundoon fishes the sea, only the grundoon knows.
I plagiarnze everyone. You haveae few choices. Stay in a tradition rhyme form but make up new words, and you become carroll. Use limierikcs, and you are either Ogden Nash or Ed Gorey...
Use song lyrics or tempos, and you will be flanders adn swan or tom lehrer.
Sirens three, of wind-tossed sea/ Songsters bright of abyss dark/ Sing the wave and sing the tide on/ Bones to waves and dreams to dawning.
Bones to depths and dreams to dawning, along with killing the comma in the first bit, would be better, but eh.
Frito-lay change back most of thier completely-degradable snack bag due to complaints by secret snacker that the bags were too noisy.

Cassparadox, she's not a hag,/lays eggs inside a paper bag. The reason for this, there's no doubt / it serves to keep the lightning out. ///But what this tempramental bird / has failed to notice, is that herds / of wand'ring bears
, they come with buns / and steal the bags to hold the crumbs.

and way to get it in under the wire - I think that's a GMT time stamp
There will come soft rains
To relieve hard pains
From misspent youth on bowling lanes
Balsam hemorrhoid cream -
for the discerning athlete.
00:04 You realize that I must never let grundoon
