To the Best of Investments in Modern Medieval Times  
 
From One Venturesome Backer  
 
*  
 
"Beneath my balcony thou yet dost come  
to croak thy crowns of sonnets' fitful feet  
and with thy thumb thy lute off-key flat strum  
as hoots of laughing owlets screech offbeat.  
By night my bed of roses thou dost pick  
despite bad eyes and footings less than sure  
besides the shrieks with each sharp thorny prick  
or fall upon thy puss in fish manure.  
On Valentine's my sweetmeats thou dost scarf  
while swigging down thy cans of cheap Plonk wine  
till both my Vera Wangs steeped deep in barf  
thy cans of bargain bubbly full decline.  
But still thou art my sole new soulmate true  
true keen to clean my chamber pot of poo."
