My Aunt's Astonished Parakeet

Repetition twenty-fold is what I really crave [Apsley]

Any time you choose to recommend it [loaf]

But, bear in mind, prolixity is repetition's slave [Beefy ]

Which is, of course, the reason I portend it [Kansas Sam]

Repetition thirty-fold makes poems so supreme [Apsley]

Surely none would claim they could be bettered [loaf]

By stretching out just one more time the empty form of words [Apsley]

The intellect's pretensions can be fettered [Roland]
