The Gazogene’s Exploded
The gazogene’s exploded and a spare we haven’t got;
the pans aren’t in the pantry and the pots have gone to pot;
we’re owed a Grecian urn, but it’s likely that we’ll not
receive it anytime soon.
The gazogene’s exploded and we haven’t got a spare;
the decanter and the canteen can’t, the frigidaire doesn’t dare;
the urns just aren’t earning, someone fed my vase to a mare,
your ewer, too, to a ewe.
The gazogene’s exploded and let out the bubbly gasses;
the coffee cups have shattered into hemi-demi-tasses;
I’m weaker without my beaker and I’m blind without my glasses;
I even miss the spittoon.
The gazogene’s exploded and the lighter is unlighted;
the loving cup’s uncoupled, as its love was unrequited;
the jar is jarred, the fuddling-cup fuddled, zarf and finjan disunited,
and the tunc is tewly, too.
The gazogene’s exploded and I see no reason why;
the shot glass shot, the tankard tanked, the highball flew too high;
the poor old-fashioned’s obsolete, and others, by and by,
will be miffed at being stiffed.
The gazogene’s exploded and that really isn’t fine;
the Erlenmeyer flask I’ve got’s a pretty sorry stein;
this bottle here’s one-sided: it was made by Felix Klein,
and is non-orientable as all hell.
The gazogene’s exploded and the blender’s broke a rotor;
the mixer is unsocial since it blew its second motor;
the trophy cup’s not winsome since it perceived the odor
of which the snifter sniffed a whiff.
The gazogene’s exploded, and its failed its only task; O!,
the condiments have left their neat containers: what a fiasco!;
there’s hot sauce on the kitchen floor, a puddle of Tabasco;
this day isn’t going so well.
The gazogene’s exploded all over the Persian rug;
the pitcher isn’t pretty, no, it’s just another jug;
the drinking horn’s not horny since it saw the ugly mug,
the krater’s in a crater from impact.
The rummer is just rummy, and the rhyton is all right;
the chalice has no malice, it just hasn’t slept all night;
the Venice glass knows when i’ss past, but now it’s shining bright,
and the gazogene’s intact!
