Those Words The Days, My Friend
We heard that he was coming
that boulevardier from Florida South
Heard that he might woo us
with poetry straight from his mouth
It was with convivial spirits
that we waited for his arrival
Wondering if we'd been bamboozled
and if there was a chance for survival
Legerdemain was his reputation
preceding his knock at the door
In he bounded with joy to spare
surely he'd not be a bore
So artfully he fomented us
that we were caught aback
Surely the skills of a poet
he certainly did not lack
He was the concatenation
that held us all in awe
Yes, Seymour has come
to be the sweetheart poet to us all~
*A tiny, well-deserved tribute to a real gentleman*
Seymour, you inspired us with your poetry
and dazzled us with your 'Randy'
