Our trap is baited carefully
with words that readers do not see
until they're coming back again
to ask them where their minds have been;
we tell them that the laughter's free.
Some folks don't like our foolin' thee
with double-meaning designee
who's innocently courtesan
to show the unsuspecting man
Still others tire of our degree
of plays on words, and most agree
we play the role of handymen
when we could be like Groupe Beauchesne.
Duct tape, they say, should referee

P.S. Larry, take a look back at some of your latest rondeaux, and you'll see that you've left off an A-Rhyme line before the final rentrement.
