If it’s trivia you’re after??

C. J. Black
Write a poem off the cuff
About lot and lots of trivia stuff.
Scratching my head in wonderment
I thought, a request from Heaven sent.
For is that not what I attempt best?
So away I go quill in hand with vigour and with zest.
Open the mind let it all hang out
Then you’re in with a real good shout –
To write a poem off the cuff
About lots and lots of trivia stuff.
Like when they invented the toilet roll
Were they standing or perhaps sitting on a stool?
When chamber music first came to light
Was it performed in a small room out of sight?
Then of course there is the Morse code
What were they thinking when into the room Samuel strode?
And hallelujah for the crochet and quaver
I guess for Handel it was a real life saver.
Did I hear a murmur of that’s enough?
I’ll sign off so, but in the future should you want something off the cuff??
