From PHALLIC to italic
ONCE I LIVED IN CAPITALS,Roger McGough, the British poet who was a favourite of mine in my PHALLIC college days, but who I now, in my cynical Italic way, find somewhat gimmicky. Still, fun has to come, that's all, and his Collected Poems has plenty of it.
MY LIFE INTENSELY PHALLIC,
but now I'm sadly lowercase,
with the occasional italic.
(I was reminded of this poem by this post of Gaurav's. Fugger. People make me do push-ups for punishment when I crack jokes like that. Run around Lokhandwala four times. Sing Robindro Shongeet backwards. And so on.)
