The Third Rail Theme

Tell me what you think:
"The party of the first part
and the party of the next
were partly participled
in a sparsely covered text"
"Were you partial to a party
that has parceled out its parts
to a faction that was second
in your parley-tickle heart?"
Walt Kelly, 1953.
This poem from 54 years ago.

I love this kind of lyrical word play.

I can't help but wonder where you found this.

Walt Kelly is the artist and literary genious behind "Pogo", the best comic strip ever. This poem is from "Uncle Pogo So-So Stories" (strips from '53 put into a book in '54).
