A CERTAIN SYMBOLISM

ADULT ANALOGIES—READER BEWARE!!!!!

THE MARVELOUS MUMFORD

A CERTAIN SYMBOLISM

(Symbolic limericks about aging)

Symbolism seen

When the wood is green…

Considerably stiffer

For the giver

Than lately except in dream.

–J.E.C.

A magazine’s model track plan,

Shows the fate of most men…

Young is shorter

And won’t give quarter,

Old hangs flaccid from the man.

Certain railroad trains

In model form entertain…

By how they run

And the form of one,

Phallic in collector’s brain?

—J.E.C.

Most layouts of model trains

Go round and round as deigned….

The finer ones twist

Like a proper French kiss.

Up, down and around moraines!

–JEC

“Covered wagon” engines are sleek,

Bulldog appearance–not meek–

Facing just one way

One needs two to play,

Without turning tables, so-to-speak!

A “hood unit”—roadswitcher kind–

Can see out both ends, neither blind…

Diesel-electrics

Rarely in a fix,

Unless something breaks in time.

–JEC
