Tricolon with anaphora?

12 April 2001
Ooooh, Victor, artful.

Doors can open inwards;
Doors can open outwards;
Daws are attracted to shiny things and fat women with crÍpes.

Keys open doors;
Keys do not open daws (unless you apply pressure);
Quays are too waterlogged to open either.

Rose tinted spectacles allow one to view the world more optimistically;
Rose petals can be crystallised to decorate confectionery;
Rows of prosthetic limbs can make satisfying bookrests.

Hens are smarter than they look;
Hens don't look very smart at all;
Hens their problem.

Girls have retail fetishes;
Girls go to spas to make themselves feel less ugly;
Gulls don't taste as nice.

Ours not to reason why;
Ours but to do or die;
Arse is a word wholly appropriate in certain circumstances.

Cox is a very common last name;
Cox, a kind of apple from the gardens of England;
Cocks are rich in protein, but perilous for those with high cholesterol levels.

Come into the garden, Maud, for the black bat;
Come on down, the price is right;
Cum in my face, like Jesus.

Some people call me the space cowboy;
Some call me the gangster of love;
Sum up this foray in four words.

Shit in a hat.
