Echo Chamber Music

Moose! Moose! Moose! Moose! Moose!
Caboose! Caboose! Caboose! 'oose!
Dialed the reverb down

or do you prefer

Moose! Moose! Moose! Moose! Moose!
Caboose! Caboose! 'oose! Moose! Loose!
Turned the echo off

Dr Seuss
Once rode with a moose in a caboose
Alongside two unicorns
With unique horns.

Romantic Scoring

Richard Strauss
Would've scored Die Fledermaus
For an ultrasonic soprano
And her sunshine-shrinking beau.



Richard Strauss, Pauline and Franz Strauss, 1910

Booby-trapped

Poor conflicted sleuth
Improvised explosive vice
In his Mined Palace

Homo Grammariens

Steven Pinker.
Linguistically challenging thinker.
Bringing us down from the case trees,
The rich savannas of grammar to seize.
