Ode to Adam Lambert – It’s Platomic

April 28, 2010

By “Annehedonia”

Another measure and milestone of success: Today, “Whaddaya Want from Me” achieved platinum status. Very proud of Adam for this well-deserved honor! That can’t go uncelebrated. To wit, some doggerel

Atomic # 78
~ from the rhyming dictionary

Adam’s done gone platinum
With sweet sounds for the tympanum
He didn’t chant an organum
Or sing something from the arcanum
…next single could go rhodium
…or maybe even osmium
He’s such a hot “phenomanum”
Decked out in skin tight black denim
Now where’d I put that laudanum?
(The rhyme most obvious was “yummm”)

(at least we can learn some vocab. words if the poem’s not meritorious!):

tympanum = ear drum
laudanum = a “snake oil” remedy made of morphine & opium from the 1800′s said to help ladies with a case of the vapours
organum = a type of Gregorian chant
arcanum = secret or hidden material
rhodium & osmium = two more precious metals often found with platinum

      Dear Cathy, while we would love to take credit for this elucidating poetic lesson in rhyming, alas we are not the authors.

      Our Poet friend “Annehedonia” composed it as a comment but we decided that it should have a post of its own.

      We have more contributions from this writer which we will highlight in future.

      Thank you

    Love how your column offers gives new insights and makes me happy. While dealing with frustration of trying to score tickets to the Nokia, you bring order and calm to the my Adam-centric world.
