Titles of Last Resort

It Is true that he took to occasional rhymes With an art that was rather instinctive at timesSome day I shall write a novel and call it ‘A Walking Tour in the Congo’ or ‘Thrills and Spills in Aeronautics’; but I keep this type of title as a last & mercenary resort.

  1. A radio announcer I once knew had a piece of music he used as his theme for finishing his shift. I no longer remember what the music was, or which announcer this was, but the music cart was labelled “Tiger Hunting In the Ureweras” . (no, there are no tigers in this mountain range in New Zealand).
