Radio Follies

 
Good evening, listeners.    
It’s your Delilah Deli here at six    
dee-livering the local news.    
So sit a spell with me please do.      
     
With all the rain we’ve had,    
the welfare of our park flowers    
has me in doubt.    
For here in Danvers,    
there’s just the one park,    
and the flowers, there’s only    
two: one yellow, one blue.      
So we need to be diligent,    
and learn the drill, ‘cause    
Danvers Park & Recreation    
( there’s only the one ) has a    
slogan; now say it with me:      
“In Danvers, NO flowers grow.”      
     
Well look-it here, standing    
bold as brass in the doorway    
of our station, if it isn’t the    
manager, Dithers Weaver!    
Say Dith, it’s a real delight.    
I’m just pleased as punch to    
see you here gracing us with    
your presence. What brings    
You clear out here from    
Beverly on such a friggin’,    
I mean, frigid morning?    
     
Oh, and hey Dith, can you                
get me a large coffee, strong;    
nothin’ in it but pure caffeine    
please cause it’s colder than a    
witch’s thorax in here. Thanks!    
   
Okay, listeners, while Dith    
is running his errand of mercy    
for your Delilah, let me ask:    
How ABOUT this weather, eh?    
   
The long duration of the cold    
can hardly be called a “snap”.    
I mean, really. The hamster    
who was in charge of running    
the wheel of our heating    
‘round here must be    
pushing up daisies by now!    
You peeps feelin’ me?    
   
Oh speaking of which, here’s    
Dith, back at last with your    
Delilah’s penicillin in the    
form of a cup of coffee.    
Oh my stars, did you lose your    
way to the break room, hon’?    
You ran five blocks to    
Pirouline’s? A sponsor!    
How very supportive of you.    
   
Oh but Dith dear, you’re    
suddenly looking delicate    
‘round the edges. Lie down on    
the cot in the break room    
while I go to station pause.    
Mmm, this coffee’s good and    
it’s still hot, how’d you do it?    
   
Anyway folks, time for station  
break while I warm up, and    
we hear from Chopper Hal    
with his drone up in Boston,    
to give us a report on traffic    
for tomorrow’s marathon.    
   
Before we hook up with Hal,    
we’ll hear from our alternate    
sponsor about its weekend    
clearance sale on furniture.    
Don’t pass this up, you can’t    
afford NOT to check it out    
Favorite colors will sell out fast!    
Pick up a divan before styles    
& selections start to dwindle.    
They’re simply divine!
