Oy gloomy!
this is,as the words from the arse-end
of the Accrington-type language
would describe it as being-

Fuckin' ace!

Now get yer soppy bod in that kitchen
and roll yer bleedin' sleeves up!

Lovely to begin, and lovelier with each ensuing word, a capture of baby-ness to thrill the heart. 'snow landing on wood' is an image in a million. I feel blessed to share this poem.

P.S. (after reading comments) And I see I'm not alone.

Thanks, Laura, got it. But this isn't exactly 'mirror' writing, just the regular letters put in reverse order, reading from left to right. My computer can't write 'mirror'; but, as I used my pencil, my fingers began reverse letter-shaping almost automatically. Weird.
I cringe because I was not sure how far I should stretch 'nonsense'. Yes, Winston, I did know that - Greek, wasn't it?

Having read your heartrending ditty
That brings new meaning to self-pity,
Be consoled there, in your room -
I nominate you "High Priest of Gloom"!

Yes plenty good. Just one point Mike, the 'F me' - could have been 'Blow me'. I know it's not as strong and may loose something but it does loose the 'F' Other than that I enjoyed the beetroot. Ta much, Nick.

Howzabout non-elations?

As in when I also used to do
Shotokan Karate.

the non-elation I refer to in that sport
was when I tried to show off-as I do-
(on rare occasions)
and attempted to perform power breaking
on a breeze block.

Unfortunately the breeze block came out best.

There,you can laugh now-with my permission.x
