|is for Pliny|
There was once a Roman called Pliny.
We’re talking of the Elder, not the Mini.
He wrote on birds, bees, and blooms
Now that’s a work that cannot be called skinny!
Oh, he was a man most astute and Prolific
but his death was quite pointless and horrific -
in a bath he chose to stop
when Vesuvius blew its topand the toxic fumes turned out too soporific.
P is for Post : Now that's a word which has had its Paradigm shifted in the last few decades! Post was something I did to a letter when I was a child. I had several Pen Pals, and also regular friends who became Pen Pals because we moved around so much. I used to look forward to those letters, and also Parcels of goodies, mostly books, from grandParents and other relatives.
And thanks to technology and a different kind of Post I am still in touch with some of those friends, though we are separated by thousands of miles.
