Platonic Scooter Or Worse

Banish poets? To The Pole?       [Apsley ]

To feast on guts and guacamole       [loaf ]

And bend their being to a bone       [Apsley Carrollish ]

A skinless wonder on the throne       [Roland ]

Who, careless of their cost and care,       [Apsley ]

Has sent them forth to trap a bear       [Chevalier ]

Invisible across the ice       [Roland ]

Shut Up! They're as quiet as mice.       [beaver tamer ]

Hail them back? From Timbuktu?       [Roland ]

To dine on walnuts and tofu       [Chevalier ]

That never saw the light of day       [Roland ]

Nor else the scent of new-mown hay       [Apsley ]

But freshly strewn on ransacked graves       [Roland ]

That lie 'neath Gothic architraves       [awrc ]

Invincible across the years       [loaf ]

Known only by their hopes and fears.       [charlie ]
