In Which I Teeter Drunkenly From Lilac Intoxication

The DEA might confiscate my yard:
It's one great mass of heady blossoms there.
My tendency to sniff just might retard
My reason and mien. I am aware
That it is best that I not operate
Machinery, or speak in public while
I'm in this deeply interesting state --
As demonstrated over on this file.
I'm not a grammar Nazi, but I am
Quite mindful of those usage niceties,
Agreement, case -- oh yes, I give a damn.
And pay attention to apostrophies.
But lilacs and some other blossoms, too
May make me start to use "whom" 'stead of "who!"
