In the words of a love song, it’s written

If they never leave your mind you are smitten

And if you do fall

With butterflies and all

Better make room for two when you’re sittin’

Don’t bump the badger

When he’s sleeping.

Don’t bump the badger

When he’s mad.

You’re better off

Slapping at hornet’s nest

Or, maybe not

Those things will sting you bad.

Yes, I know that word

Is really kind of cool.

Comparing a hornet’s nest

To a sleeping badger.

Well, that’s pretty dumb,

And written by a fool!

Deceptively, beautiful scripts of the hand

A treat for the eye

From a talented man

__________

Imperfect and perfect for all to see

Alive on the pages

Of what could be

__________

The Calligrapher’s carrousel displayed in a dance

Talented fingers

Pirouette at the chance

__________

Steady and true to the old dying art

How it plays to our senses

Like it did at the start

_________

But time is not friendly in this age of men

As the carrousel stops

And the page finds its end
