And for today's Big Question we bring you something found upon following the path of a Google search tangent ...
"Why is comic verse seen as light verse? Can comic verse be heavier than 'serious verse'?"
A question I can not answer but am curious to see what might be said about it.

hmm, comic verse, I wonder whether there is such a thing as cosmic verse?
