    Wrote an English sonnet once. It was an assignment for a College Composition class, and took all of a half an hour.

    Got a good laugh from the attractive female professor. It was worth the half an hour.

    Dzhokhar is not a Space Cowboy
    He's not a Gangster of Love
    And I won't call him "Maurice"
    Cause he doesn't speak of the Pompadus of Love.
