“Life-changing Turnarounds”

(or “Dennis, Lana, and Anna”) by Paul Burgess

“Before he turned his life around,
DenniS always cursed and SinneD,
And, until LanA’s turnaround,
She was an AnaL bag of wind.”

…But, AnnA found the story foul
And said its moral was deranged.
It seemed a message quite unfair,
Implying she had never changed.
