The Chaos by Gerard Nolst Trenite (1870-1946)

I remember reading this at school, a thousand years ago, and came across it again today (wrongly titled) thanks to a red-headed, belly-dancing writer on Facebook.

Man, I just the cultural impact of the internet.

Go read it; it's fun. Print it out for open-mike evenings at Poetry nights...

Duly noted, Bizzy. Yeah, dizzying.

Seeya', thanks for dropping in.

The things that stick with you from school, though, huh...yeah, I had a lot from those days, many forgotten but, clearly, not all the educational system leaves behind is muck.

I found nothing hard to pronounce and got the rhyme and rhythm all the way through , I must be English after all? Oh dear!
