Ignoring The Peach And Nectarine

If ever I would write a dirge       [Arnold the Sly Ape ]

Whose words, derived from Kant,       [loaf ]

Would cause the sullied world to surge,       [Apsley ]

The roaring tide to rant       [loaf ]

I'd deftly dodge each well-thrown fruit       [Kansas Sam ]

Defy each insult sling       [loaf ]

'Till 'aesthetes' at The Institute       [Kansas Sam ]

for logic in death would sing       [Lauren Baum ]

Things-in-themselves may fade and droop       [loaf ]

the earth in fire may burn       [Lauren Baum ]

And toast may founder in my soup       [loaf ]

and Immanuels stomach turn       [Lauren Baum ]

And yet I cannot but decry       [F ]

the paucity of my wit       [Lauren Baum ]

And so, befuddled, oft I sigh       [F ]

and cry,(a little bit)       [Lauren Baum ]

For those in peril on the sea       [(trad) ]

Who bought one so we'd get one free       [Chevalier ]
