Making Up for Lost Space

Last week’s Spot… 
               Proved to be a bit of a conundrum.

It was not… 
               Anon A. Mouse’s customary hum-drum.

Two of three… 
               Respondents to me said they didn’t get it.

My, oh, me… 
               Don’t get it? So what else is new?! Don’t sweat it!

Such disdain… 
               “It’s a waste of space—a grand, colossal foozle!”

Let me ‘splain… 
               (And be glad it was less baffling than usual.)

What I wrote… 
               Is a nod to Cage’s piece, 4’33”

Where you’ll note… 
               The performer simply sits there silently.

“Waste of space…” 
               You think that I would ever do that? Ever?!

Not’n this case… 
               It’s only me just trying to be clever.
