Never Quit Being Made
J.I.M. is a prisoner of style made,
by the imagination of play things.
The plantation they wisely evade.
"Beware. Trouble is brewing. Keep a sharp lookout."
Fears take the family's heart,
spooked again, and spooked again.
Ouch! Whoopjambereehoo! of flintheart,
the family stands firm in their pain;
till all the blue dragons are slain.
Form Based on John Dunne's "A Litanie: the Son"
