Walking With Roget

(Lou & Peter Berryman, ©2007)

I ambled and I shambled and I scrambled some too I swaggered and I staggered and I trampled it's true I resolutely strode the sod and did enjoy the promenade Except for trudges that I've trod without you So dare I say I love ya, you're the text of my trek For nearly every step of the way Without you, dear thesaurus, I'm a rambling wreck With no one here to help me but the odd cliché I slithered like a lizard and I flounced like a flea I waded and I waddled from Point A to Point B It's been a treat to tromp the swamp when there's a sloshing in the stomp But it's a slog without you romping with me I often have to wonder when I ambulate late How lonely must a vagabond seem To locomote alone without a moseying mate But little do they know that we're a two chum team With you within my fanny pack I traipsed and I tripped I sauntered and skedaddled and I skidded and skipped I pussyfooted and I clumped I tippytoed and I gallumped And you were there to pad my rump when I slipped I'm often asked the question if I lost my Roget Do I think it would be something I'd miss I have to say that prob'ly I would stroll okay Although with no thesaurus it would sound like this I'd walk and walk and walk and walk and walk down the block I'd walk and walk and walk and walk like someone in shock And after walking to the store I'd walk on in and walk the floor Until they got my new thesaurus in stock So dare I say I love ya, you're the text of my trek For nearly every step of the way Without you, dear thesaurus, I'm a rambling wreck With no one here to help me but the odd cliché The banal snip The rundown quip The threadbare blurb The shopworn verb The trite aside The old bromide The haggard prose The gilded rose The phrase passe
