This afternoon, pretending so to be
A chatterbot. Therefore I thought it fair
To do my best at least to try and see
If I could do the same, give tit for tat.
Mac Tonnies, guest appearing on a show,
To talk about the kinds of matters that
He knows about on real live radio,
I treated to a silly stream of lines
From his own stories in his juvenile
Accomplishment, Illumined Black. All signs
At this hour read "success": at least a smile
If not a laugh I drew. But that's for Mac
To say. If not I'll try more for payback.
