Shopping     [number poem w/ 20 beats]

more number-dabbling

(one two) when I (three four) went
to (five six) the corner (seven)
market (eight nine) every cent
(ten) bought me one thing (eleven)

what was that (twelve) that I bought?
(thirteen fourteen fifteen) ought

(sixteen) I reveal to you
what I (seventeen) purchased   hmmm?
okay (eighteen) honeydew
(nineteen) melon (twenty)  mmmm!


I present some (perhaps complicated, or at least extensive) instructions for the use of this little poem as a "recitation exercise" here.
