Sweet Dreams

I dreamed I saw a country parson with an English rose
Who held the flower in his hand, then stuffed it up his nose
"The Vicar and the Deacon gave me rose seeds", he explained
"And I scattered them in silence all alongside Penny Lane".

I dreamed I saw Osiris with a monkey on his back
He was chasing saparris up and down a railroad track
In a slow moving vehicle, a one-man trolley car
The monkey wanted LukeJavan. Osiris wanted more!

I dreamed I rode a speed bike down a San Francisco street
Beside me was a Danish tart (and not the kind you eat)
Our penny-farthing came to rest against a cellar door
We quit the race, became unchaste (2 wheels, 2 squeals, 1 floor)

I dreamed that Dr. Goodword and Pope Francis were best friends
The word-wise pair would make frank comments on linguistic trends

Well, congratulations on another wonderful poem. One with a rather high bar, too. Using member names in each line is quite a feat. Kudos. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say I look forward to the next installment. Valentine's Day, perhaps? And then St. Pat's, pretty please?
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
