The Testimony of Lowell SwiftWhile on my way from work one day
With roses for my love,
A paper blade with a pearl of jade
Came falling from above.
Zooming down upon my crown,
It darn near shook my brain!
But I massaged my head and said,
"A gift for my dear Madelaine!"
On closer inspection, I found imperfection:
The tiny jade pearl was a fake.
And only to follow, the whole thing was hollow!
