2574. Jewish convert?

In olden days, if a mohel clipped a knight,
The blood from dismembering dripped a night
No Superman, he,
If he got up to pee
He felt weak, as if nearby were kryptonite.

(You know a lim is lousy when ya have to show the stresses.)


  1. Not necessarily. If marking unusual stresses lets the reader recite the poem immediately and saves him three minutes of trying to figure it out, then it is a good thing. If not showing stresses causes the reader to give up after two minutes and he leaves with the impression that the author has no sense of scansion, then who has been served?

  2. Thanks for having my back, Bro Steve!
