If May weren’t so smashing,
spacergifI think I’d be cashing
my shoes in for life at the Cape—

whose fêtes I’d go crashing
spacergifwhile probably bashing
my head in on fermented grape.

If May were less thrilling,
spacergifno doubt Jeffrey Skilling
would leave us all dumbly agape;

but Lay’s no less chilling
spacergifand is likely shilling
for guys who think love’s just like rape.

If May weren’t compelling,
spacergifI might think of selling
Lay’s version on videotape;

but nothing’s propelling
spacergifmy urge to try telling
his sheep de Panurge to escape.

If May weren’t compounding,
spacergiftheir need to keep sounding
like dullards evading a scrape,

I might just try founding
spacergifa trust that seeks grounding
in other than ‘U. S. of Ape.’
