Moses supposes (Senryu)

by - Mr. Darcy   Jun 20, 2015

Moses thought his toes
Were poses of roses
Disillusioned man


Just a bit of fun.

Inspired by a song in the film, singing in the rain

Here is the tongue twister from the song:
Moses supposes his toes-es are roses,
but Moses supposes erroneously;
for no-body's toes-es are poses of roses,
as Moses supposes his toes-es to be.

    Another lovely little piece. How wonderful the different emotions that can be conjured by words. This one:laughter. I love the "Disillusioned man" end - abrupt and funny!
