Excellent! How about this verse?

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels...
Doorbells and sleighbells and schnitzel with noodles.

I would say not every imagining that surfaces from the mind has a unique yet logically austere description. Eventually, I would get pretty repetitive when describing the same types of experiences in different words, heh... I would say the entire contents of the poem you are quoting would be [here we go] a subjective, grandiose, and colorful allotment of human experience, focusing on sensory perception in terms of personal awe and reverence thereof, in the form of ornate and imaginative poetry.

Well done... Besides it's not quite a fair repartee. I have Rodgers and Hammerstein on my side. You're having to come up with original work on the spot.

"...Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings,
There are a few of my favorite things!"

I had to finish it!

My three dogs are extremely loveable...but my old donkey (age 16) is really the most sensitive. She actually cries.

High heels and miniskirts
blond hair a flowing
staring until it hurts
forgot where I'm going
