Will the gel and zefferdonne live in peace? (Strong Verse magazine)
Beneath the Stanid Sky

Beneath the pale and stanid sky
With naptures fixed and true,
The solemn zefferdonne supply
A most sumpeltious view.
The moistome gels all gasp and swoon
And dream of menchel honeymoon
The moistome gels
The moistome gels
Give purpose to the vast platoon.

The clear and strillant trumpets play
To battle, zefferdonne!
But weeping moistome gels must stay
And strive to carry on.
The burden shared by zeff and gel
From Jonoch’s stair to gates of Hell
The burden shared
The burden shared
As each bids other fond farewell.

For seven nacks, the zeffs are gone,
For seven hellish nacks,
And then return, debbish and drawn,
With rukaas cross their backs.
The waiting gels, moistome no more
Can hardly bear to see the corps.
The waiting gels
The waiting gels
Pretending all is as before.

The distance grown ‘tween gel and zeff
Will dwindle over time.
But twice the seven nacks won’t greff
The scars it left behind.
And all will pray to Jonoch’s ears
An everlasting end to tears.
And all will pray
And all will pray
That dovinch reign and banish fears.
