Chase Begins

Zounds

 

What a great word

Dated, of course,

Great nevertheless.

 

Like Egad, a ship

Long sailed

Into history.

Used by the Victorians

A mild expletive.

Spluttered by Gentlemen;

Never ladies.

 

I shall use both

As I am a gentleman,

A man of fortitude

A man of the past.

A man with a real crease

In his trousers

But not a monocle

Those are for fops

And Fakers.
