My mistake, Moose. I did you an injustice. No, you are not forgiven for the counterfeit
but, at first reading, I though the doc had lost his marbles - and his meter. Sentences began with iamb, trochees, anapests, and I had a hard time following any rythym. For a mortal this would have been forgivable, but for such a champion of meter as you, I attributed it to either Johnny Walker of Jim Beam.
Then, after two valiums and a percocet, I reasoned that there must be a different answer. MIchaelangelo does not simply begin painting stick figures...so I studied it again and realized that, by beginning each line with an anapest, everything fell into place and all was right in the world.
Balance has been restored to the universe and you have my apology for my short-sightedness.
