Shelley, He Can't Be Serious

    Sadly, yes, he is--- but don't call him Shelley.

    If you can make lines like these scan, you're a better man than I:

All gaily dressed soon you'll go
To the great Provincial Show,
To be admired by many a beau
In the city of Toronto.

--- from (I kid ye not) "Ode on the Mammoth Cheese"

I dare ye, I dare ye all, to come up with verse that's worse. (So much worse it needs a nurse / before it ends up in a hearse?)
