Farley

by Mike (Binary Rhyme) Heffernan, 2007 I heard from a friend who heard from a friend a short little tale about Farley The friend of a friend said a friend of another friend had asked for advice at a party from Farley She was faced with a page that failed to engage “How do you beat the block?” she asked Farley The answer was exceptional at describing a professional “I simply run up the Visa” said Farley Facing similar obstructions I followed his instructions but it didn’t work for me like it did for Farley Lacking literary gifts I’m now working triple shifts but on my breaks I read Farley I wrote this little ditty the other day because (as I said there) you don’t go to the Dusty Owl without something to read. It is a bit of a twist on a response offered by Farley Mowat at the Governer General’s (Ed Schryer) New Years Eve ball many years...
